Site C women hunger strike 1

Women hunger strikers outside BC Hydro building in Vancouver, BC, March 4, 2016.

On Friday March 4th, 2016, the women will hold a second day of hunger strike action outside the BC Hydro building in downtown Vancouver (333 Dunsmuir), in support of the Site C/Treaty 8 Stewards of the Land encampment that was forcibly removed by a court injunction applied for by BC Hydro, granted by the BC Supreme Courts and enforced by the RCMP. This will be the second day of hunger strikes Those participating include Anushka Azadi, Elizabeth Biggar, Mary Lovell, _____.

The women will begin their fast on Friday morning and are calling for other women, grandmothers, mothers, sisters, and our children, for support, prayers, and visits as they stand in defence of Cree and Dunneza Territories. It is the women who will lead us to a world that is kinder, more just and honours all Life and Creation and it is the women who have always taken the strongest stance because they know what is at stake.
This hunger strike has been called in direct response to the grave and serious violations of the inherent and Treaty rights of the Cree and Dunneza Peoples and in direct response to the grave and serious violations of the Natural Law of the Lands and the Waters committed by the Province, the Federal government, the BC Supreme Court and all those associated with these colonial and genocidal structures.
The hunger strikes will be held outside the BC Hydro Building from 8am to 5pm. Our demands are the same as the Treaty 8 Stewards of the Land encampment. Halt all construction until judgement in the court case considering Treaty violations in regards to this dam is issued and that this project be reviewed by the BC Utilities Commission before its continuation.
“The women have said no and the women have said enough. No more destruction. No more RCMP violently forcing Indigenous Peoples, who are at the forefront of the impacts of climate change and environmental decimation, from their own Territories to make way for mega projects that will only bring more degradation, more hunger and more grief.”

    Killing us And Destroying Our Life Sustaining Fragile Eco-Systems !

    There is No Atmospheric Budget of Carbon, Methane, or Nuclear !

    Reykjavik, Iceland – Over the past year, a number of giant, mysterious holes have emerged in Siberia, some as deep as 200 metres.

    Scientists say the craters may be emerging because the frozen ground, or “permafrost,” that covers much of Siberia has been thawing due to climate change.

    Allowing methane gases trapped underground to build up and explode !

    Permafrost is ground that is permanently frozen, where the ground temperature has remained below 0 °C (32 °F) for at least two years. It covers about a quarter of the northern hemisphere’s land surface.

    “Permafrost soils contain vast amounts of carbon, nearly twice as much as is currently in the atmosphere.

    As the permafrost thaws in a warming climate, the soil decomposes and releases carbon to the atmosphere as carbon dioxide and methane. These are greenhouse gases, and they warm the Earth even more.

    This leads to more permafrost thawing, more carbon release, and so the cycle continues,” Chadburn said.

    At the recent Arctic Circle Assembly in Reykjavik, Iceland, Max Holmes from the US-based Woods Hole Research Center (WHRC) said in a presentation that the Siberian sinkholes “are an additional indication that vast changes are under way in the Arctic.”

    Greenland is Melting and Calving Now, Jonas just went over Greenland at above Freezing Temps, for the first Time.

    “And for the Winter of 2016 it’s possible that the Arctic may never experience typical conditions.

    For, according to NOAA, the first half of February saw this record, Spring-like, warmth extend on through today.

    It’s as if these coldest zones in the Northern Hemisphere haven’t yet experienced Winter

    — as if the freak storm that drove Arctic temperatures to record levels during late December has, ever since, jammed the thermometer into typical April levels and left it stuck there. ” Robert Scribbler
