Surveillance

Surveillance is the groundwork that builds our knowledge in order to plan successful actions. At this time we are gathering information to build our spring mobilization.

What you will do:

  • Monitor traffic patterns in and out of various pipeline construction worksites in Burnaby.
  • After an orientation you will set up at one of several locations to look, listen & record movement of equipment, vehicles and people in and out.
  • Sign up to a date (weekly or bi-weekly), whether weekday or weekend.
  • Schedule your two-hour shift (anytime between 6:15 am- 5:00 pm).
  • This is fully legal, non-arrestable surveillance that takes place well outside their fences & injunction zone.
  • Submit your reports through our secure communication channels.
  • Actually do something that will make a difference.

What skills and experience you'll bring:

  • You are prepared to be outside in any weather (bring a chair?)
  • Ability to focus, observe, & record findings / field notes.
  • Willingness to make brief reports following your shift using our existing online communication platform.
  • Bonus: if you team up with a friend it doubles our capacity as we can monitor multiple connected sites simultaneously!
