Anti Poverty Activists say no to Chevrons Dirty Hands

21 Jun

on june 18th people at the anti gentrification tent city in Kitchener attended a workshop on imperialism and colonialism. The focus of the discussion was the role of settlers in the first world to reject the narrative that they are fed by the corporate media and support those struggling for self determination. After a brief history of the crimes of the imperialists in South America was discussed people focused on Chevron and the attacks they are launching on Equador for the stand that they are taking in defense of the environment. The crimes of Chevron and lack of accountability to the indigenous people and the rainforest in Equador was explained and discussed. After this people participated in making a banner as part of the Chevrons Dirty Hands Campaighn and this banner was hung in Victoria Park.

As people dipped there hands in black paint and covered this banner there was a discussion of future actions and what we can do here to support the struggle. All in All it was a success.
