Raven heard sounds in a clamshell on the beach and pried it open
releasing the human beings into the world.
The price of their freedom is responsibility to care for the earth,
Given access to what is their share to sustain life, they must not

Today the Shell is marked with red lines of blood.
A new and unholy cancer of profit
We must crush the cancer in our imagination.
The people repeat the RavenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s cry: get the Shell out!
Ramona Quock and other Tahltan Elders lead First Nation peoples of Northern British Columbia in the struggle to prevent Royal Dutch Shell from destroying wilderness through the extraction and piping of natural gas to Alberta. Wyoming ranchers have already seen their land dismembered by natural gas production that is shipped to Alberta
for use in extracting petroleum from oil sands.
For All people who protect the Sacred Being of Earth
