Highlights from 2002
Marc Loiselle spoke on Corporate Power and Ecological Violence at the Trading in Violence/Building for Peace Conference, the annual conference of the Parkland Institute in Edmonton.
Cathy Holtslander, Bob Willick and Marc Loiselle were resource people at the United Church of Canada's workshop in Saskatoon on GMO Food.
We met with Katsumi Yamada of the Japan Organic Agriculture Assocation and Ryoko Shimizu, representing Seikatsu Club Group, a major consumer co-operatives union in Japan. They are trying to stop the introduction of Round Up Ready rice and see many parallels with our struggle. They gave us a good kharma figurine which symbolizes the future success of our case.
A Benefit Cabaret with the "Genetically Altered Boogie Men" and Fred J.Eaglesmith was held November 30 in Saskatoon. The music was great and the Ukrainian Orthodox Hall was packed with easily 300 supporters. To see photos of the event, visit our photo gallery. Listen to the Boogie Men performing their song "Wasn't That A Party—A Doofus Drinks To Environmental Collapse" (WMA format). As a counterpoint, the CBC Saskatchewan Morning Edition's Jim Mckillican wrote a serious environmental song, "Too Much Fun". You can listen to it at the CBC Morning Edition website.
