In Manitoba, the government continues to approve and subsidize massive hydro-electric dam projects that have flooded out communities and resulted in fish and wildlife population decline. Natural gas fracking and open-pit sand mining continue to be supported as well. Unsustainable farming practices and commercial fishing are the leading factors in the surge of blue-green algae blooms in Lake Winnipeg, the world’s 10th largest freshwater lake, where high nitrogen and phosphorus levels are to blame for the expanding dead zone. 5G radiofrequency technology and radioactive waste disposal are proposed projects that are in cabinet deliberation. All of the above projects have and will continue to degrade Manitoba’s natural environment, wetlands, lakes, freshwater supply, air, and soil quality.
Extinction Rebellion is an international movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience in an attempt to halt mass extinction and reduce the resultant risk of social collapse. We are one chapter that is united under a shared story, strategy, principles, and values.
Letters, research, reports, and petitions have been sent for years. The government and industries are not listening and they have failed to take the necessary actions.
We are in a declared CLIMATE EMERGENCY. We are in a life or death situation of our own making. We are out of time. We need to fix this broken system. There ARE solutions. WE are the change.
