Solidarity photo with Pacific Climate Warriors


On Sunday, October 19, members of the Riverdale-Kingsbridge Coalition for Climate Action gathered to show their support for a brave band of 30 Pacific Climate Warriors from the Pacific Islands. After 20 fruitless years of lobbying against the fossil fuel industry, which is creating the climate change destroying their island nations, the 30 Pacific Islanders paddled traditional canoes from their islands to the world's largest coal port in Newcastle, Australia. On Friday, October 17, these courageous people paddled into the path of enormous coal ships coming into and out of the harbor, in a peaceful effort to call attention to the climate-profiteering of the fossil fuel industry. RKCCA gathered for a solidarity photo in front of TD Bank in Kingsbridge. TD Bank is a major shareholder in TransCanada, the fossil fuel company destroying Alberta's boreal forest in pursuit of tar sands oil. #StandUpForThePacific
