Near Cannon Ball, N.D. — It is a spectacular sight: thousands of Indians camped on the banks of the Cannonball River, on the edge of the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota. Our elders of the Seven Council Fires, as the Oceti Sakowin, or Great Sioux Nation, is known, sit in deliberation and prayer, awaiting a federal court decision on whether construction of a $3.7 billion oil pipeline from the Bakken region to Southern Illinois will be halted.

Amidst the cries of "protect our water, protect our land, protect our peoples," Native Americans, ranchers and farmers are standing their ground along a highway in North Dakota. They are blocking the crews of Energy Transfer Partners -- a Dallas-based company whose workers are protected by both police and armed, private security personnel -- from accessing the site of the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Dear Climate Rebels, This is from Brad Hornick. I am writing to you as an original organizer for Climate Convergence. The original vision of Convergence was about creating not an "organization" but a "movement" based on radical democratic principles and with the desire to maintain a strong and explicitly anti-capitalist, anti-colonial and anti-patriarchal approach to organizing. These aims are written into the Convergence "Points of Unity".

The devastating fires in Fort McMurray show the urgent need to transition to an economy that supports people and the planet, and this is part of a transition in climate justice politics.

The Kanesatake Mohawks are challenging the Energy East pipeline application, claiming it’s incomplete because it doesn’t address potential environmental risks the structure would pose as it crosses the Ottawa River.

If regulators accept the application as complete, it would be “the height of irresponsibility,” according to a legal letter filed Monday by the Mohawks’ lawyer to the National Energy Board.

“We are ready for them,” said Tina Louise Rothery. “It has been a long battle but we have been ready for a confrontation for a long time.”

Rothery is one of a growing group of women at the forefront of opposition to fracking. Of the 250 anti-fracking community groups that have sprung up in Britain in the past few years, very many are led, or strongly backed, by women, who say they have been outraged at plans to risk people’s health by exploiting the countryside for shale gas.

VANCOUVER - Some of the world's leading experts on climate change - including former NASA scientist James Hansen, and Tim Flannery, chief councilor of Australia's Climate Commission and a world expert on climate change - have called on the Trudeau government to reject a massive liquefied natural gas project proposed for the Skeena region of Northern British Columbia.

May 26, 2016 - Ultimately, it’s up to Justin Trudeau. ​Faced with his first pipeline challenge, the Liberal prime minister can say either yes or no. A decision has to be made before the end of this year on Kinder Morgan’s plan to expand its Trans Mountain oil pipeline.

It’s a hot-button issue in B.C.’s Lower Mainland, where the pipeline terminates to deliver its cargo from the oil sands of Alberta.

The National Energy Board has given its conditional approval for the $6.8 billion project.
