Blue Beach Bash: Back To The Future

BBBash 2018 B

The Toonie Derby

 

People aren’t taking the lack of action to protect the Maritime watersheds and coasts any more! We are increasingly united through the Nova Scotia Environmental Network and through events like Eco Connects NS and this one at the geologically important Blue Beach, where activists live and fight for the fish species in the Avon River which are prevented from spawning because of the Windsor Causeway, which the local politicians, Ottawa, and DFO will not address.

Blue Beach Bash has grown to include all water, air, soil, forest and energy-centred issues of the region. Activists want people passionate about all issues to come and broadcast their concerns on live radio. There are plans to form a giant circle which will be photographed from a drone and then the footage sent to media and politicians all over the region. There’s camping space or motels in Windsor, Grand Pre, Evangeline Beach, and the surrounding area. Let’s get stronger through the solidarity of meeting together for music, comradeship and speaking our truth to power. Hope to see you there!

Bring your nuclear family unit, your organization, come as one or with friends. Let’s form the United Community of Citizens for Environmental Protection.

If you’re not in the Maritimes, please share this with those you know who are.
