Over the last week, almost 500 more people have joined the Leadnow Amplify Network for a special social media mission to support the Fourth Annual Tar Sands Healing Walk -- Welcome!
Background - It’s becoming common knowledge in Canada that our government spends a lot of time meeting with oil industry lobbyists and learning to understand the world through their eyes. But when it comes to the daily lives of communities directly impacted by the tar sands, our government prefers to look the other way.
Community leaders are standing up and reaching out. The Keepers of the Athabasca have invited Natural Resource Minister Joe Oliver to join them at the Fourth Annual Tar Sands Healing Walk and meet face-to-face with the communities that are being poisoned by the reckless expansion of the tar sands.
These communities should have a say in the decisions that profoundly affect their lives, and almost 8,000 people have already sent email invitations to Minister Oliver.
Healing Walk Action - Now let’s use our social media accounts to tell Minister Joe Oliver to meet face-to-face with the communities impacted by out of control tar sands expansion, and walk shoulder to shoulder with them in this year’s Healing Walk.
To do this we’ve created a new hashtag to rally thousands of people on Twitter and on Facebook - the hashtag is #facetoface. If Minister Oliver can make time for oil industry lobbyists then he can make time to walk with the communities being poisoned by the tar sands. That seems fair, doesn’t it?
Help us launch the #facetoface hashtag with some thunder, and motivate others in our online communities to publicly turn up the pressure on Joe Oliver.
