Join Me as We Pull Together to Defend Canada’s Air, Water and Land
by Franke James
Pull Together Party Night Vancouver: November 20 at 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
The Pull Together Party Night is to raise money for First Nations legal challenges to the Enbridge pipeline. It would be fabulous to have you there! Get your free event tickets. More details below…
If we all pull together we can win! The First Nations of Northern BC are raising money for their legal defence fund. They are opposed to the Enbridge pipeline ruining their land, endangering their health and destroying their communities. “Their legal challenges based on their rights and title are one of the last lines of defence against over half a million barrels of tar sands crude being loaded onto tankers every single day.” By supporting them we are defending every Canadian’s right to clean air, water and land.
How am I helping — and how can you help? On November 20th, I am donating two of my large 47″ x 68″ posters to help raise money for Pull Together.
To see how they look hanging in interior space, check out this post about my recent art show in Victoria, Art that is not afraid to speak up: The Real Poop on Social Change. Two of my animated videos, What is Harper afraid of? and Banned on the Hill will also be playing.

Let’s Party for a Great Cause: Defending Canada’s Air, Water and Land
Join your friends and allies at Lost + Found for an evening of drinks, comedy, music and fun! We’ll be pulling together to raise funds for RAVEN trust to fund First Nations legal challenges to the Enbridge Pipeline.
Since the pipeline was approved in June of this year, much of the hope to stop this wildly unpopular project has fallen on the shoulders of the First Nations of Northern BC. Their legal challenges based on their rights and title are one of the last lines of defence against over half a million barrels of tar sands crude being loaded onto tankers every single day. ForestEthics is hosting a special party for our friends and allies in the environmental movement, where we’ll be joined by Art Sterritt, Melina Laboucan Massimo, Franke James, and others for an evening of drinks, art, music and fun! FEA is covering all the costs associated with event so there is no charge to attend, but we’ll be pulling together to raise funds for First Nation’s legal challenges to Enbridge, so we are asking that you please come prepared to make a generous donation directly to R.A.V.E.N. Trust. Please let us know if you plan on joining us at pulltogether.eventbrite.com
“RAVEN is a small but mighty Canadian charity that raises money to help First Nations tackle the big issues of Constitutional rights and protecting traditional land and ways of life. To ignore these injustices would be tantamount to condoning them. We stand shoulder to shoulder in support of their rights, so that we can achieve parity for the people on whose land we live.” ~ Susan Smitten, RAVEN executive director
