Action Opportunity: To the Tar Sands Bike Trip

What are you doing for environmental justice this summer?

Sierra Youth Coalition is organizing another amazing political activism bike trip.

Fill a water bottle full of polluted water in the Athabasca River and hand-deliver it to the oil executive of your choice in Calgary.

Join us for the 2008 bike trip to raise awareness on this most pressing issue! The tar sands are Canada's fastest growing source of greenhouse gas emissions, and at the current speed of development, could quickly become Canada's greatest contributor to climate change. It is also degrading Alberta's natural heritage with toxins and clearcutting, and posing serious health threats to communities in the region.

We will meet up in Edmonton on August 11th 2008 for pre-departure training and workshops (mandatory). The team will start the trip at Fort McMurray five days later and head to Calgary, approximately 1000 kilometres away. Arrival in Calgary is planned for September 3rd.

To participate:

Please send an email to Youri (director [at] syc-cjs [dot] org), read the information sheet, statement of purpose and registration which will be sent to you, and join us this summer!
