Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

I've never marched in a protest before, so this is a first.

Tomorrow I'll be on a bus load of Quadra Islanders driving 4 hours to be with Alexandra Morton in Victoria and march to the Parliament Buildings to bring awareness that the open-net fish farm industry must get out of the waters.

I hardly know what to pack for such an event except I'll be wearing my marching shoes and bring my loudest voice. Wish me luck.

UPDATE 20100511: It was one of the most amazing days of my life. I packed just the right things, the bus ride down was so much fun (we sang even!) and to march with my hero is a moment I'll never forget. I'm sure I wouldn't have spent the time I did to research what Alexandra was up to, read more on both sides of the story until I could form my own opinion, and it didn't take long for things to just not add up about the open-net fish farming going on in my waters around the corner from my beautiful island. Alexandra is off to Norway next week to again ask the Norwegian organization who own over 90% of the fish farms here to kindly get out of our waters (and on to land at the very least). I'll be following her blog, her facebook and any news I can get about what's happening. I've written emails to politicians, our paper and posted blogs. My eyes have been opened wide and I have playing this 'game' to thank for motivating me to take action, march, and stand up for change. It feels good and scary at the same time but it is my destiny, according to Alchemy. I look forward to my journey ahead.

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

Included are new emergency routes on what will be an expanded highway to allow traffic to flow in the event of an emergency.See More

India Water home

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
