Tar Sands Action Deemed Largest Collective Civil Disobedience this Century

People from all walks of life and from Conservative, Liberal, and Independent parties have been brought together to demand that our president say ‘No.’ It also reminds us that no matter who we are, what our job is (if we’re lucky enough to have one), where we’re from, what our hobbies are… doesn’t matter — we are ALL people who will have either ourselves or our children on this earth in the future. It’s our moral responsibility to take care of our world. One of my favourite Native American proverbs is: “Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors; we borrow it from our Children.”
