Keep tar sands out of Europe
At: The Esplanade, outside the entrance to the European Parliament
Tarnished Earth is a dramatic street gallery of photographs telling the story of one of the world’s biggest climate change threats and local ecological disasters. The striking images show how Canada’s magnificent boreal forest is being destroyed by the rush to exploit the tar sands, contrasting the destruction with the pristine wilderness and traditional way of life of the indigenous First Nation Cree.
The exhibition will be officially opened by Jo Leinen MEP, Chair of European Parliament Environment Committee.
The opening will include the presentation of an EU citizens’ petition to ‘Keep tar sands out of Europe’,to representatives of the European Parliament.
