February 13 and 14: Divest from fossil fuels.

Everywhere, February 12-14

Together, we will show that we are a truly global and growing force to be reckoned with. As the fossil fuel industry throws more money at fossil fuel expansion, we will turn up the volume of our divestment movement. And we won’t stop until we win.

Deniers are not skeptics

Online, January 29-February 15

Some members of the media are still misleading the public by wrongly using the term “skeptic.” The New York Times, for example, recently called Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) a skeptic — even though he believes that climate change is “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated.” Sign your name to support the open letter from nearly fifty members of the skeptical scientific community, telling the media: Climate deniers are not skeptics.

Stephen Harper and Big Oil have gutted Canada’s environmental review process, cutting people's voices and climate change out of the National Energy Board review of the largest tar sands pipeline ever proposed.

Help First Nations continue to fight Northern Gateway in the courts

British Columbia, Jan-August 2015

Thank YOU for everything you did to help reach Pull Together’s 2014 goal of raising $300K! That translates to a lot of support for First Nations legal challenges against Enbridge. In a marvellous display of solidarity, British Columbians and people from across the country stepped up and have become allies in the effort to protect our land, waters, and future. The six First Nations involved with the campaign are very grateful for the public’s support in the legal fight against the approval of Northern Gateway. The funds raised have already been disbursed to help pay for some of the legal work conducted to date, including obtaining the right to proceed with the legal challenge, and preparing and filing judicial review applications.
