How will you keep them off your islands when our federal government wants to import 500,000 more every year .
Shut down the ferries. Some of the newbies don't stay long because they think they MUST have instant access to Vancouver. A few leave because of the rain. So, a fain dance during a ferry strike should do the trick. We already have Tshirts saying Vancouver Island is full.

How to Blow Up a Pipeline Learning to Fight in a World on Fire by Andreas Malm


Why resisting climate change means combatting the fossil fuel industry

The science on climate change has been clear for a very long time now. Yet despite decades of appeals, mass street protests, petition campaigns, and peaceful demonstrations, we are still facing a booming fossil fuel industry, rising seas, rising emission levels, and a rising temperature. With the stakes so high, why haven’t we moved beyond peaceful protest?

In this lyrical manifesto, noted climate scholar (and saboteur of SUV tires and coal mines) Andreas Malm makes an impassioned call for the climate movement to escalate its tactics in the face of ecological collapse. We need, he argues, to force fossil fuel extraction to stop—with our actions, with our bodies, and by defusing and destroying its tools. We need, in short, to start blowing up some oil pipelines.

Offering a counter-history of how mass popular change has occurred, from the democratic revolutions overthrowing dictators to the movement against apartheid and for women’s suffrage, Malm argues that the strategic acceptance of property destruction and violence has been the only route for revolutionary change. In a braided narrative that moves from the forests of Germany and the streets of London to the deserts of Iraq, Malm offers us an incisive discussion of the politics and ethics of pacifism and violence, democracy and social change, strategy and tactics, and a movement compelled by both the heart and the mind. Here is how we fight in a world on fire.

Well-known environmentalist David Suzuki apologized Thursday for comments about pipelines being destroyed.

On Saturday, Suzuki warned if politicians don’t take action to reverse climate change amid escalating tensions there could be attacks on infrastructure by protesters.

“There are going to be pipelines blown up if our leaders don’t pay attention to what’s going on,” Suzuki said.
