A small group of women from OILberta are planning a 12-hour prayer vigil, for Dec. 10th, from 10 am to 10 pm. outside of TransCanada Head Office in Calgary, OILberta.
We will be welcoming in Indigenous Faith Keepers as well as welcoming any other faiths who want to share in the sending positive vibes throughout the 12-hours to share prayers, songs, dances and ceremonies of "love & compassion" for our Sacred Waters that need Our Protection from the "black Snakes" they want to run across Our Sacred Mother Earth.
We invite all other peoples and nations affected by the ENDLIFE PIPELINES to join us in this Prayer Vigil for the Sacred Waters by coming to Calgary, or to join us spiritually, from your own homes and territories.
We will be honouring and praying for protection for all land defenders across Turtle Island, who are standing strong to Protect Our Sacred Mother Earth and all living beings, including all of our future generations. This includes honouring and praying for those who are no longer with us, including the murdered and missing women and their families.
We will also be honouring and praying for the Founding Women of Idle NO More, as well as all of the elders, women, men, youth and children who have stood up to protect Indigenous Rights and the environment, since the first Idle NO More rally, two years ago
And more importantly, we will be honouring and praying for all those elders, men, women, youth and and children, in the centuries since colonization was imposed on the peoples of Turtle Island, who have never been Idle, including all residential school survivors and those who are still standing strong for their lands and their people.
We also ask everyone to sign & share our petition or "Invitation to Global Energy Leaders" to switch-over to earth-friendly life-supporting sustainable alternatives, within four years or less. This petition will be delivered to Russ Girling, CEO of TransCanada, as well other Big Oil Executives and the politicians who support them. Your suggestions on who to send the petition to are greatly appreciated. The full wording of the petition is included on this page, for your reference.
So, please come out and join us, on December 10th, with your prayers for "love and compassion" for Our Sacred Waters and all living beings! And if you have anything to gift, like a cup of hot coffee or tea, warm blankets, winter clothing or children's toys, please put in our "Donation Box" - which will be there for people to gift to others who need them.
In solidarity & love - FOREVER Idle NO More!!!
