Celine Trojand from the Dogwood Initiative and local performance poet Magpie Ulysseys have been added to the line-up at the “Talk, Music, Action event coming up at the Capitol Theatre in Nelson, March 27th.,

The evening of presentations, music and action is being put on by local group Kootenays for a Pipeline-Free BC (find us on facebook) to build resistance to the Enbridge and Kinder Morgan pipeline proposals in our part of the province.

“We will be announcing future actions on pipelines at the event,” says Keith Wiley, who organizes with the Pipeline-Free BC group. “This event is less about general information about bitumen pipelines and more about the growing opposition movement and activities in BC,” he said.

A featured speaker, Geraldine Thomas Flurer, the communications coordinator for the First Nations Yinka Dene Alliance, represents that key opposition to the Enbridge pipeline. Celine Trojand will also be speaking about activities to prevent the doubling of the Kinder Morgan pipeline to Burnaby. Brian Rosen and other local musicians will be adding a lively musical element to the evening.

Magpie Ulysseys was named a Poet of Honour at the 2012 Canadian Festival of Spoken Word. She often addresses environmental concerns in her searing poetry.

Tickets for the event will be $15 or more donation, just $5 for students and youth.
