Sacred Activism In Action: Fairy Creek Blockade Defending Our Ancient Trees

Over the weekend an old friend from my Movati days reached out to ask if I wanted to participate in a peaceful demonstration starting at City Hall in Hamilton and then migrating to a park for peaceful activities together to raise the vibe and hold space while other activists do what is required by putting all the politicians and policy makers and enforcers on notice that a trespass is being made against us all and they will be held personally liable for upholding it.

Naturally, I said yes and have just yet to create the event for it because it has become very clear to me that protests and rallies without a clear directive are just potential opportunities that didn’t have anywhere to go but away.

Causes with heart and purpose actually have the potential to go somewhere and that is what we must demand of ourselves right now, which is the will to steer our own ship even when the going gets tough!

Mother Theresa said “I will never attend an anti-war rally but host a rally for peace and I will be there.”

I shared that with those who invited me to the Simcoe Rally where myself and several other speakers received summons to appear June 10 for violating “A Flexible Re-Opening Schedule” which is the accompanying piece to the “Re-opening Ontario Act” that has violated more rights and freedoms than any “individual – failure to comply” ever could over the past near year and a half.

Yet as per Event 201, the intention has always been to rape and pillage those who stood up first so that we had nothing to defend ourselves with when they send in the MK Ultra’d Military to clean up after the internal division between countrymen and women gets so bad few would be left standing by then anyway.

It’s a sick plan but always reminds me of Martin Niemöller’s poem from World War II:

“First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”

What is absolutely insane as well is the fact they are also coming after our ancient lands and habitats that dwell within the ancient forests of British Columbia, Canada, and very few are talking about it. Right now they are literally trying to pull an Avatar on us by going after the Mother and Father trees of our one and only ancient temperate rainforest on Vancouver Island.

And we have a chance to stop it!

The Rainforest Flying Squad is a volunteer driven, grassroots, non-violent direct action movement committed to continuing the tradition of Native culture to  protect the 2.7% of B.C.’s original productive old growth forests that remains standing and is currently under attack!

I’ll be interviewing some of the sacred activists contributing to “The Last Stand” at 11:30am EST and would love for you to hear their testimony of what is happening to the brave men and women risking their lives to protect this vital part of our ecosystem.

Our trees are pivotal players in the breathing and cleaning section of our environmental orchestra and it is time for us to step up to protect these ecosystems the way those joining me this morning are doing!

Tune in on Facebook LIVE Streamed to “Where Misfits Fit: Home For Soulfull Seekers” or “Fairy Creek Blockade” at 11:30am EST (8:30am PST) this morning and hear it straight from those who are on the ground and able to report on what is happening to the trees and the ones protecting them right now. It isn’t kind or pretty but it needs to be talked about.

Please join us for this important update and let’s combine resources so that we can protect the ancient ones that give so much to us we don’t even know what life would be like without them.

And please understand the symbolic significance of what is happening within all of this for that is the true test!

Once you have eyes to see the lies of what you were previously oblivious to it becomes obvious and you’ll wonder how you didn’t always see it that way. So we will touch on the symbolic components of this today, or in the next call, for this is just the first of many as we come together to support those who are on the ground doing what we’re all called to do!

With love and appreciation for your support for sacred activism,

Laura JeH – Namaste
