You are invited to join internationally-acclaimed campaigner Joshua Kahn-Russell for the Australian launch of his new book "A Line in the Tar Sands - Struggles for Environmental Justice."*
Canada's Alberta tar sands oil, if fully exploited, would add enough carbon to the atmosphere to break the planetary carbon budget. In response, a massive, diverse people’s movement has arisen in, drawing “a line in the sand” before the fossil fuel juggernaut. Comprising a tapestry of leading voices involved in this struggle, A Line in the Tar Sands is a tool for organizers and newcomers alike, offering critical analysis, strategic reflections, and visions of hope for the future. If you breathe air or drink water, this book is for you.
Come hear Joshua talk about the book and learn how its lessons can be applied to Australia's coal and gas battles.
