 In Solidarity With All Land Defender's Facebook group calling for people to #ShutDownCanada.  on February 13, 2015. 

Block local street/highway/rail line, etc., ie, disrupt the flow of the economy in any way you can. 

Get together with your friends and family to start planning now. Please share any info on local events on this event page we will use as a networking hub. Tell as many people as you can, time to get the ball rolling.

Grassroots collectives are organizing nationwide for a day of action to ‪#‎ShutDownCanada‬. Through the use of a diversity of tactics the goal is to significantly impact the Canadian economy for one whole day.

What is the goal out of #ShutDownCanada?

To remove the veil or illusion of the government’s "Action Plan" that is being touted as a strong economic stance for Canada in the global market. Economics being the key word and base of why there is such a blatant disregard for human rights and our environment.
