We are in a climate crisis and the BC Government continues to allow the logging of 1000 year old trees
Old Growth Forests act as an essential carbon sink, they hold the soil and reduce the risk and severity of floods and landslides, they act as a natural barrier to wild fires, are home to many endangered species and are culturally and spiritually significant ancestors of these lands.
Only 2.7% of B.C.’s original productive old growth forests remain.
A 2022 Poll showed 82% of British Columbians support legislation to ban all old growth logging in the province.
Over 1,100 people have been arrested at the Fairy Creek Blockade and numerous other blockades have been set up across the province.
Sir David King (world renowned climate scientist and the former Chief Scientific Advisor to the UK) has stated.
“What we do in the next 2 to 3 years will determine the future of humanity”
We are facing the destruction of our society, the economy, everything we love and more.
Saving these precious and important ecosystems is an essential step in preserving a livable future. We must do whatever it nonviolently takes.
“The science is clear. Canadians have been clear. We must not only continue taking real climate action, we must also move faster and go further. As Canadians are increasingly experiencing across the country, climate change is an existential threat.”
“This is an emergency and for emergency situations
we need emergency action.”
Ban Ki-Moon, Former UN Secretary-General
