NEWS RELEASE · 2nd April 2012
The students and staff of Bella Bella Community School stand together in opposition to the proposed Enbridge Pipeline that would bring supertankers filled with oil along the coast of the Great Bear Rainforest, jeopardizing the environment upon which we rely for sustenance, both physical and spiritual.
"We will be engaged in a 48-hour hunger strike from April 1st at 4 pm to April 3rd at 4 pm. This coincides with the Enbridge hearings in our community.
We hope to open a dialogue with other concerned students from around the province and communicate through video conferencing during our hunger strike.
We invite your school or community to join us in our strike and help make a statement that can't be ignored."
