Because we want to save forests not just hug trees, because we want to live in a community not a shopping spree, because we want the whole history - whose land are we walking on? - because we want to start here and now...

There is no more time for philosophising, discussion and so-called debate, the planet needs you to give a shit right now. Find out how to join in grassroots movements to change the course we are on and stop the total destruction of our planet. Get informed, get some eco-ninja skills, find an active group, join in, get inspired - and in the course of doing any of this, pay respects to the original inhabitants of this land.
