The Fairy Creek protest against logging old-growth timber is still going on, more than a year after it started.
Activists come in many forms, and this Zoom meeting brings together a broad spectrum of people who have visited and stood on the lines at Fairy Creek. Their observations will be enlightening and informative.
Please join us at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 2, 2022 for their insights and stories about standing up for our forests.
This event is free. Our panelists are not charging speaker fees, but we recommend a contribution to the The Last Stand For Ancient Forests - Ada'itsx/Fairy Creek Blockades. You can donate at https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/last_stand_for_forests/pay.
Protecting your health
BC Greens recognize that airborne illnesses and pollutants pose a significant health risk to everyone, especially the young, elderly, and immunocompromised, while caregivers, healthcare professionals, and support staff come into regular contact with vulnerable persons. When choosing venues, BC Greens prioritize outdoor spaces, and indoor spaces with good ventilation. In closed indoor spaces, we encourage attendees to wear well-fitting masks (N95, KN95, or KF94), especially during the respiratory-illness season.
Creating safe spaces
The BC Green Party is committed to providing an environment free of discrimination and harassment, where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, can contribute fully and have equal speaking opportunities. To support this commitment, all event attendees will be expected to follow the standards of our Safe Spaces Participant's Guide.
