Pipelines, Tankers and Climate Chaos...Or System Change? Occupy Vancouver Environmental Justice Work Group Workshop
by Occupy Vancouver
The global 1% and the big oil corporations they control want to expand Tar Sands extraction and the pipelines that serve it, including the tar sands export terminal on Burrard Inlet in Burnaby. The threat to our local environment from oil spills is huge, and we are at a strategic location to keep the 1% from cooking our planet.
 
Join the uprising by the 99% to stop pipelines, tankers and climate chaos!
 
Saturday February 25, 4 - 6 pm

Occupy Brookfield Properties
JOIN US in Vancouver for a 24 hour, peaceful, pop up occupation of Brookfield Properties in solidarity with the Occupy Powell River "Occupy the Forest" Action (also on #F25), Cortes Island, and OWS Liberty Park.

What: A 24hour occupation of Brookfield offices in Vancouver.

When: From noon Saturday February 25 to noon Sunday February 26.

Where: Meeting at the Vancouver Art Gallery on Saturday at 11:45am, then marching to Brookfield Properties at 550 Burrard Street.

Why: Brookfield and its wholly owned subsidiary Island Timberlands are preparing to log old growth forest on Cortes Island BC, an area comprising much of the last remaining 1% of the original ancient Douglas Fir forest that once blanketed the coastal region.
"This is the same company that has achieved notoriety recently for evicting Occupy Wall Street from Liberty Square (Zuccotti Park), which the company owns," said occupier Tosh Hyodo.


"We're losing the last of our ancient forests-in the name of Wall Street profits-old growth forest sacrificed for the out of control growth of the speculative economy," said Stephen Collis of Occupy Vancouver's Environmental Justice Working Group. "We don't think the last 1% of old growth Douglas firs should be used to help line the pockets of the world's elite 1%."


Actions have already taken place or are planned on Cortes Island, Powell River, Nanimo, London England and New York City.

Occupy as you are comfortable, bring what you think you will need. Food Not Bombs will be in attendance, as well as the Lovely People's Library.
