Looking for a creative way to protest the Tar Sands or any other cause? — Try this

Two thumbs way up for this novel way to imaginatively and effectively communicate a just cause to the public. The operative words are  “imaginatively” and “effectively”.

On Sunday Oct. 17th, activists from Environmental Justice Toronto and the Indigenous Environmental Network came to Yonge and Dundas Square, in the heart of downtown Toronto, to invite people passing by to ask them why they protest the tar sands giga-project and start a conversation. This action was done in solidarity with BC First Nations and the No Pipelines No Tanks Day of Action in BC. (Thanks to documentary photographer, Allan Lissner for posting this story).
