Thanks to Nora Weaver for finding this song “Save Our Waters” by Kinnie Starr featuring Ja$e ElNino and sending it on.
This music video won the award for Best Music Video at the most recent ImagineNATIVE Festival. It uses stop-motion animation of Haida-carved figures to tell an allegorical story about what the Canadian government’s current energy policies could to to sacred land and waters. Prime Minister Stephen Harper tries to steer an oil tanker called the Bitumen Valdez around Haida Gwaii and up the Douglas Channel.
Can these animated Indigenous heroes save the day?

While there might not be much to cheer about these days, a song by Leonard Cohen can always bring a smile.
May you all stay well and be ready for the new year with renewed vigor for the struggle ahead.
Thanks to Terry for posting the photo (below) of the light OCCUPY BELLINGHAM hopes will bring greater awareness to the issues we face.

There has been some thought about how best to inform our OCCUPY BELLINGHAM web browsers about who we are, what we stand for and what we are doing. One of the methods we use is to encourage folks to stay informed on a myriad of issues, not only by attending meetings and participating in actions but by reading. That’s what the links on the left side of the page are about.
- Quick referrals to other web sites that can inform you about other groups,
- Important information about our OCCUPY BELLINGHAM various campaigns
You can view all these issues that we care about and demand action for on the menu bar under “ABOUT”. There we list our vision, mission and demands.
We are in the process of moving this categorized information to the top menu bar under LINKS. When we have this completed you will see a larger space for the blog portion of the web site and possibly some changes there as well.

This major upgrade to the software we use for our website does not appear, so far, to change anything visible to users in our historical content.
There are lots of improvements under the hood that give content creators enhanced options. As these options are used, there may be “look and feel” differences that users see in new content.
