NEWS: Comox Valley chapter civil disobedience workshop, June 5

The Comox Valley Echo reports there will be a “Civil Disobedience Workshop on Sunday, June 5 from 12:30 to 5 pm in the Tsolum Building in Lewis Park. …This workshop is being organized by the Council of Canadians Comox Valley Chapter. …This workshop will teach how we can prevent problems while we try to make our points to governments and corporations.”

“Harjap Grewal, the BC-Yukon CoC Regional Organizer will be the trainer. He is well versed in the Do’s and Don’ts of protesting.”

The Comox Valley chapter is currently fighting the proposed ‘Raven Underground Coal Project’, a coal mine to be located about five kilometres from Baynes Sound in the Cowie Creek and Tsable River drainages. The sound is the narrow western off-shoot of the Strait of Georgia that separates Vancouver Island from the mainland of British Columbia. The mine would be a threat to those waters, while the use of the coal itself is highly polluting.
