Emery Hartley from Friends of Clayoquot Sound, Chris Cook’s What In the World update, Eric Nordal and Social Coast

With only 10% of Vancouver Island’s ancient forests remaining, isn’t it time to just STOP allowing for-profit corporations to log and mine them to total devastation?   Today I speak with Emery Hartley from the Friends of Clayoquot Sound office in Tofino about threats to the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve (logging, mining, aquaculture), and with Eric Nordal who’s just returned from the Unist’ot’en Camp in Northern BC about how activists can get involved around Victoria.  The Social Coast bus is planning a trip to the Walbran Valley (currently under threat) in August, and Eric’s also about to launch a Retail Action Network intended to gather retail workers together to talk about labour issues – reasonable compensation, working conditions, etc.  Also, Chris Cook‘s What In the World?! update focussed on the Ukraine.
