Feb 13 – Action against the Olympics and Tar Sands

Action against the Olympics and Tar Sands

11:00am, Sat Feb 13
Ottawa – starting at the Olympic Clock

(Wellington at Metcalfe, across from the Parliament Buildings)
we will be at the clock for at least a half-hour, after which we may move on to other location(s)

We are choosing to interact in the street with our fellow citizens on this day, to help raise awareness of the effects of both the Olympics and Tar Sands.

We will be starting conversations and distributing literature – we have copies of the Dominion issue on the Olympics, flyers on both the Tar Sands and the Olympics, and even awesome stickers, to pass out to people who take an interest.

Please consider joining us in this effort to reach out to those who may be under the spell of the massive efforts to promote the Olypmics and the Tar Sands as projects that Canadians should take national pride in.

We are holding this action in response to a call for solidarity actions to take place across the country on this day, put out by Indigenous Environmental Network, Rainforest Action Network, Oilsandstruth, UK Tar Sands Network and many more…

For more information on the issues and to see full callout, please see:
