Idle No More DFW is sponsoring the Teach-In.
There is always more to learn about the impacts of tar sands development on the people and the planet. Through expanding knowledge and community comes power to change the system.
Aly Tharp, an activist and community organizer with a degree in environmental studies, will be putting together a presentation and facilitating a group discussion on:
- basics of the tar sands mining process
... - the deadly costs of tar sands mining to indigenous communities and the environment
- "bitumen" and tar sands pipeline transport; the Keystone XL and other local tar sands pipelines
- what happens when tar sands bitumen spills?
- the financial and political BS that is pushing the KXL, and other mega projects forward
- unified indigenous resistance
- political and grassroots methods of resistance
There will be many information resources available to take home, as well as the opportunity to become connected and involved with local tar sands resistance efforts.
