Coextinction Film Viewing

Wednesday April 19, 7:00pm, SFU Goldcorp Centre for the Arts ( 149 West Hastings Street, Vancouver)

Join Reel Causes, Protect the Planet and Ecojustice for a screening of Coextinction. After the mother orca Tahlequah carries her dead calf for 17 days, Indigenous leaders and scientists make a desperate attempt to save the last 73 Southern Resident orcas from extinction. Coextinction takes audiences deep into the interconnected web of ecosystem collapse on the frontlines of the Pacific Northwest's most pressing environmental threats. Fish farms, pipelines, dams, increasing vessel traffic, climate change, pollutants and centuries of injustice against Indigenous peoples are all connected. No species goes extinct in isolation.

What Can We Do When Laws Harm Public Health?

Mar. 14, 10:30-12pm, Public Health Association of BC, - online

Dr. Tim Takaro's career has focused on environmental and occupational health and, in recent years, on the health impacts of climate change. This led him, as a citizen, to become a volunteer with Protect the Planet Stop TMX (the Trans-Mountain Pipeline Expansion) since August 2020. In November 2021 he was arrested for tree-sitting in an attempt to block further construction of TMX and in June 2022 he was sentenced for contempt of Court and jailed for three weeks.

In this online webinar he will share some of his experience and deep consideration of the ethics of climate change and health action, including exploring an ethics framework for climate action in public health and examine the Declarations of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act as a foundation for potential planetary health action on climate change.



Saturday January 28, 11am-6pm, Kiwassa Neighbourhood House (2425 Oxford St.) 

A free festival of workshops for activists both new and old. Sessions will include Non-violent Direct Action, the Seven Grandfather Teachings, Land Defender First Aid Training, Zine-Making, Public Speaking 101, and more.
