Our Eco-Justice Committee supports resistance efforts against climate change and environmental destruction. The Eco-Justice Committee works from an understanding of capitalism, ongoing colonialism, and environmental racism.

Solidarity With Alton Gas Resistance

For example, members of the Anti-Racism and Eco-Justice Committee recently initiated a coalition group called “Solidarity with Alton Gas Resistance” (SWAGR) with a focus on supporting frontline resistance efforts against the Alton Natural Gas Storage Facility Project in Stewiacke, Nova Scotia. We do so with direction from Millbrook First Nation, Sipekne’katik First Nation, and other residents of the Shubenacadie area.
