Are You Ready to Give Big Oil a Crude Awakening?
Tar Sands are a sign of just how insane the quest for oil has become. Everyday vast amounts of fresh water, and land are sacrificed in order to find a short term energy solution. Now is the time to shift gears and move away from an energy course that is devastating traditional homelands, decimating one of the world’s last remaining Great Forests and pushing us to the edge of climate chaos. The UK Tar Sands Network will be joining the Crude Awakening Crew on October 16th to send a clear message to the oil industry that their time is up! See you there!
We are demanding the immediate end of the destruction of our lands, lands that sustain our caribou and our people. It is difficult for me to express the anger I feel at the loss of this noble animal in our territory. Our traditional land is dwindling. We need habitat for our animals to ensure there is a healthy surplus. These animals sustain us and, as they die, our future becomes uncertain. We must act now to take care of Mother Earth.
