Halifax Stands With Water Protectors – Silent Auction Fundraiser
December 3, 2017 , 2:00pm-5:00pm
Water protectors are on the front lines at the mighty Shubenacadie River resisting Alton Gas. They are doing crucial work to protect the water for all of us. With winter coming, they need our support to keep them warm and safe.
Proceeds from this silent auction and performance fundraiser will directly support frontline resistance efforts against the Alton Gas Natural Gas Storage project.
We are currently seeking donations for the silent auction.
These contributions could be anything from earrings, to gift certificates for massage therapy, to books, to paintings, etc.
If you have something to contribute please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org – please include information about what you would like to donate, approximate value, a short description and your phone number or the best way to reach you. If the object already exists and you’re able to include a photo of it, please include that too!
Our deadline for accepting donations will be Friday November 24.
This event is being planned on unceded Mi’kmaq Territory by SWAGR (Solidarity With Alton Gas), a Halifax-based group of activists from Council of Canadians Atlantic Office, Ecology Action Centre, Nova Scotia Public Interest Research Group (NSPIRG), Solidarity Halifax, and the general community. The focus of this group is to support resistance efforts against the Alton Natural Gas Storage Project, and we take our direction from frontline Mi’kmaq communities and other residents of the surrounding area.
