What: Storytelling event with speakers from Pacific Islands and Indigenous leaders
When: May 10th, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Where: Education Centre South, Room 129, 87 Avenue & 113 Street, University of Alberta campus
This May, Pacific Climate Warriors are travelling from the Pacific to Canada for a tour of the tar sands and are heading to Vancouver for ceremony and speaking events to join Indigenous communities opposed to the Kinder Morgan pipeline. On May 10th, they will be sharing their stories of climate resistance.
Justin Trudeau's broken promises and recently approved pipelines like Kinder Morgan would unleash catastrophic climate change -- for Pacific Islanders this means rising sea levels that are directly threatening their homes, communities, and cultures. That's why the Pacific Climate Warriors are joining with Indigenous communities on the frontlines of tar sands expansion to share their stories or resilience.
Featured speakers: Koreti Tiumalu (350.org), Raedena Savea (Pacific Climate Warriors), Eriel Deranger (Indigenous Climate Action), TBC: Chief Tony Alexis (Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation, Treaty 6). Speakers bios will be available soon!
