We wanted to support the ongoing efforts of the blockade while we continue to hold our post providing the community essential care during the pandemic, so we decided to raise funds to put towards defying the misguided priorities of politicians yet again bowing to corporate powers.
25% of Community Acupuncture revenues collected from THURSDAYS 10am – 2pm in April (8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th) have been donated to:
- $230 the “Direct Action for the last Ancient Rainforests” GoFundMe Campaign
- $200 to the Ancient Forest Alliance
On April 1, 2021 Colonial BC Supreme Court Justice Verhoeven granted an injunction that will subject ancient forest defenders to be arrested and forcibly removed for defending the last stands of ancient forests on Pacheedaht territory. Eight months of die-hard blockaders and the tireless efforts of community supporters are facing a tough road ahead.
Sending a huge thanks to those who have supported our community practice and helped to fund a volunteer driven, grassroots, direct-action movement to protect the last remaining ancient temperate rainforests on Vancouver Island.
