Another vigil tomorrow, Jan 4, 2013, 11:45 am, at the closed door of the Enbridge hearings in Victoria plus a video from the anniversary vigil
Tomorrow the Enbridge Review Panel convenes in Victoria. The hearings are closed to the public.
The proposed pipelines (and tanker traffic) are a perfect example of the willful disregard of industrialization's agents to the vulnerability of earth and humans.
Paradoxically, we are all both agents of industrialization and earthlings in trouble. We are, as Velcrow Ripper says, the 100%.
Choosing vulnerability, the ethos of the Human Body Project, is not only about showing up in non-violent protest but also about being the change. Only by choosing vulnerability and experientially dealing with vulnerability in our beings and bodies will our brains figure it out.
This second vigil of January 2013 is about us standing in solidarity with the people of the BC coast and, by extension, all humans; to say NO to more pipelines and tankers; to acknowledge the difficult paradoxes of living in modernity.
Yes, I am protesting my own way of life because we haven't created the way to look after each other yet. Let's do it! Choose vulnerability!
Tomorrow's vigil is

We're all in this together. And one thing we for sure don't need is more pipelines and more tanker traffic.
Here's a CHEK-TV news piece about the January 1 first anniversary vigil... in the theme of wacky naked lady/nice cop.
