  •  First Nations blockades really work (4+ / 0-)

    They blockaded hunters and it resulted in legislation and regulations with fines on reckless hunting in the Sacred Headwaters area.

    •  Wonderful. (0+ / 0-)

      I am more and more convinced that non-violent direct action to interfere with expansion of fossil fuel production and infrastructure is the morally obligatory response to climaticide. The ordinary political process is letting us down. As one of my favorite punk rockers opined "You can write your congressman and fucking spit in the wind for all the good it'll do you friend." I am not quite that cynical about politics, but I think that actions like the Tar Sands Blockade and others are now absolutely necessary. We can't just wait for Obama to work some kind of rhetorical magic that will break the gridlock and obstruction. They blockade climate legislation. We blockade pipelines. That's the deal.

      Passive renunciation is not the whole of wisdom.
