Here are some photos from an August climate camp gathering and protest in Dunham, Quebec — just north of Vermont. A tar sands pipeline and pumping station project (“Trailbreaker”) was our main target at the camp.

For more information, see this invitation, and this camp publication.

The pipeline project cuts across Maine, Quebec, Ontario, Michigan, Chicago, and other areas — so there are plenty of points of intervention, and plenty of grounds for solidarity.

These photo sets are from the “convergence days” between August 18th and August 22nd.
