Grassy Narrows Event

Posted by ivytheadventure on 2007.02.23 at 16:54
Grassy Narrows Blockaders Speak in Saskatoon
Respect Native Rights; Protect Ancient Forests

WHAT:
Indigenous activists behind the Grassy Narrows logging blockade will speak about
their fight to protect their culture, their forests, and their Indigenous
people’s right to self-determination on their Traditional Territory. The event
will include live music.

WHEN:
Tuesday, February 27th, 2007 at 6:30-9pm

WHERE:
Saskatoon public library downtown
311 23rd St East, Saskatoon
Wheelchair accessible

FREE. Donations to support Grassy Narrows are welcome.

BACKGROUND:
2,500 square miles of forests, lakes and rivers north of Kenora, Ontario have
sustained the people of Grassy Narrows First Nation for thousands of years. Now
Weyerhaeuser, and Abitibi, with the consent of the Ontario government are
driving a wave of destructive logging that threatens to uproot their
traditional way of life.

On December 2nd, 2002 the indigenous youth of the Grassy Narrows First Nation
lay down in the path of industrial logging machines – blocking access to their
traditional homeland. Their action sparked the longest standing indigenous
logging blockade in Canadian history.

But, more than four years later, logging is still taking place on remote
sections of Grassy Narrows’ land, and on January 17th, the people of Grassy
Narrows called for a moratorium on all logging on their traditional lands.
Weyerhaeuser, Abitibi, and the Ontario Government refuse to stop the logging,
and respect the community’s right to manage their territory as they see fit.

Don't be scared if you're not very good, cuz we're not either. :) I'm excited, I think it'll be lots of fun. So I'm recruiting, like every good lady ought. If you like yarn (or just drinking with other crafty ladies, even), email Jackie at freeflowdance@hotmail.com.

Hi,

There hasn't been much traffic here lately so I thought I'd post about my partner's reception:

The Wetaskiwin of Saskatchewan
Closing Reception
Saturday, Dec. 2, 8pm
@ Royal Red (in Phonographique, 105 - 226 Pacific Avenue, across from Dance Sask)

It's drawings of shacks and huts, and, uh, free cookies!

cheap/free photocopying

Posted by raspberry_mango on 2006.11.03 at 06:20
Alright folks, I'm putting out my first ever zine and I was wondering what places were easy to scam or cheap for photocopying? I have a part time job and go to highschool so fundings..eugh, limited. The idea of charging for my zine makes me sad, though.

Also, if anyone could explain to me how to double side things on the machine, I would be very happy.

Free Meditation Workshop

Posted by ivytheadventure on 2006.08.29 at 14:17
Saturday, Sept. 16th. 1-5pm
@ Positive Passions

When many people think of meditation, they think of the “emptiness
meditations” of Buddhist monks. This is a difficult form of meditation,
which is not as useful to a North American life style as focused
meditation is. Focused meditation can be used to increase awareness of
a part of our body, aura, hara or an external object such as a plant,
gemstone or other person. In this workshop, I intend to focus primarily
on cleansing, charging, expanding and harmonizing our auras, which can
increase emotional
and mental clarity, sixth sense awareness, physical health, intuition
and more.
