Our movement

Fossil Free UW is one organization in a whole ecosystem working for change. Please check out these other groups.

Divest Waterloo – Divestment movement for the Waterloo Region, recently doing some great work with faith communities

Chippewas of the Thames – Located near London, Ontario, Chippewas of the Thames is a First Nation challenging Enbridge at the Supreme Court over their failure to consult them. This is one of the last chances we have to infuence the Line 9 reversal project and they really need financial resources to support their legal fees. You can contribute here and read more here.

Aamjiwnaang Solidarity Against Pipelines – Based out of Chemical Valley in Sarnia, Ontario, ASAP is working to stop Line 9. In December 2015, 3 land defenders physically closed the pipeline (after notifying Enbridge) to speak out against the lack of security and unneccessary risks associated with the pipeline reversal project. Now facing life in prison, the so-called Sarnia 3 are also fundraising for their legal fee. You can contribute by e transfer here (please set password to “solidarity”) or buy a t-shirt/read more from here or Fossil Free UW to support.
