moving mountains, one stone at a time

2018. RiseforClimate encourages people around the world to show their concern about not taking action to address climate change.
Demonstrators urged governments and others to act if we were to avoid a catastrophic climate future.
The main reaction was to shrug off anyone who noticed it. A 15-year-

Despite the novelty, she got some media coverage.
Protests against the Trans-Mountain pipeline, Line 3 and the Keystone XL line continued to emerge, with a small number and very little funding.

Winnipeg is one of the cities supporting protests across Canada.

This is something that some people notice.
Few have noticed the children who took part in the global student climate strike the next day and have protested to the legislature.
If you are still shrugging or yawning, you may rethink your attitude.
You can move the small stones to the mountains. When fossil
The fuel stripping protests began but were also ignored.
However, the movement is now global and is developing by leaps and bounds.
The Irish government has just fulfilled its promise to sell its fossil investments --fuel companies.
The same has been done by churches, municipalities and universities.
It is shameful that this has not happened here.
We should not fund our educational institutions, communities or pensions by investing in industries that make the livable future impossible.
But with the climate warming, when will their voices be heard if our agency really represents the Canadian public?
As Canadians, we believe in the rule of law, which Abraham Lincoln called \"people\'s government, people\'s government\" in Gettysburg\'s speech \".
Putting these words aside is the irony of a Republican president who has demonstrated eloquence, wisdom and strong moral character. I am worried that the small things that happen today will also add a lot of trouble to the road ahead.
Compared to the violence, unrest and poverty that led to so many people from other places settling here in the past 400, Canada\'s history is basically peaceful.
However, if we are not so peaceful, if we do not agree with the rule of law, there is no good choice.
In fact, there are not enough armed combat forces throughout the Canadian armed forces to control or suppress the active insurgency in the city of Winnipeg.
We agree with the rule of law because we believe that the rule of law is for our collective good, whether we have always agreed to it or not.
But as the protests spread, the idea of the government serving the people was destroyed or overturned by riot forces, and it began to look as if we were ruled by elite groups in society.
These days, we have dangerous water flow in our lives together, and the water flow we ignore will bring us danger.
A few years ago, the occupation movement was getting smaller and smaller.
It gives us the language of \"a penny\", the elite with most of the wealth, and the 99 cents with hope, at least in places like Canada where democracy and the rule of law are on their side, but nothing else.
For the next two years, the political campaign in the provinces and federal states will not be for our better nature, but for our worst case scenario.
They will use our fears and anxieties.
They don\'t deal with mountains that need to be moved.
Therefore, when the government talks about peace and reconciliation, it will send police;
We were told to abide by the law, but the government refused;
When the government buys and builds pipes instead of finding another more sustainable way, there is trouble ahead.
When the real steps towards a sustainable future are considered impractical or inconvenient, all we can do is take a small stone away at a time. Each of us.
Anyway, we have to move that mountain.
One day we will have a just and sustainable society.
Whether it is like Canada as we know it today depends on whether our government really serves the people.
