NEWS RELEASE · 25th April 2013
The next Idle No More event in Terrace will be held at the Minerals North Meeting at the Terrace Sportsplex on Thursday, April 25th at 5pm. Get your signs out, bring your drums and rattles, and don't forget to wear regalia (can be a cedar headband, a cape,etc).
This peaceful demonstration will include smudging, drumming, and a display of signage in respect for the earth.
Environmental groups, Unions, and people from all nations and races are invited to join with posters and your voices reflecting your cause. UNITY will bring success and a lager voice for the earth!
It's pretty ironic this conference (mining week) is being held during the same week as Earth Day (April 22).
Yes we all use metal, oil, and gas, but we can make the choice to encourage those in leadership positions to ensure these precious resources aren't exploited. There are solutions; sustainability options including environmental management and management of human consumption; recycling programs funded worldwide; I'm sure the brilliant scientists of the world have many answers to be shared. We are not stuck in this lifestyle of use and abuse; we must agree that the present goes along with the future; we must realize we are all one. Let us move forward with the utmost respect and share this message with the world! Please come in peace. ♥
We will meet on the grassy hilltop beside all the big machinery they will have situated in the parking lot across from the main entrance. This peaceful demonstration will include smudging, drumming, and a display of signage in respect for the earth. If anyone would like to speak, please let me know at the fb Idle no more Events - Minerals North Meeting, asap so I can attempt to arrange to have a mic. The RCMP will be on site to assist if anyone approaches us in a confrontational manner. Hope to see you there. ♥ INM
