White Rock: Canadians and Americans, First Nations and Native American tribes, and all the diverse communities of the Salish Sea gathered at the Peace Arch to send a unified and clear message to world leaders, as well as to our own local elected officials: it is time for unprecedented action to defend the Salish Sea and our global climate from fossil fuel development. The protestors joined hands across the border, literally taking each other’s hands; shared our struggles and aspirations for a livable planet; and pledged to take unified action to protect the climate and the ecosystems, economies, communities and cultures that cohabit the Salish Sea bioregion.
