MAY 1ST -- Public Information Meeting on Fracking to be Held in St. John's

The goal of this meeting is to inform people about the plans for fracking in this province, with the intent of forming a Fracking Awareness Group for the East Coast.  A Fracking Awareness Group has been established on the West Coast and have been very effective in getting the word out and mobilizing people.

Learn more about what has already been done from allies reporting at the 4 O'Clock Whistle and other posts on fracking published on this blog.

Regular Talking Circles on the West Coast of Newfoundland to Address the Systemic Causes of Social and Environmental Injustice in the Province – First Talking Circle (March 17th)

The first in a series of Talking Circles (to rotate between St. Georges and Corner Brook) will be held on Sunday, March 17th starting at 2 pm in the Cultural Centre, St Georges. These circles will be aimed at addressing the systemic causes of social and environmental injustice in the Newfoundland and Labrador.
A talking circle is used as a way to organize group discussions in an egalitarian manner. Group members typically sit in a circle and discuss issues with simple rules: the talking stick, or other object, is passed around the circle, and the person holding the talking stick may speak though the "holder" may allow interjection. It can be a place where people come together for personal healing in search for new directions or to make amends. People participating are there to deal with whatever the subject is and talking stick encourages effective speaking and listening/acknowledging.
