If you’ve been reading this blog, you know by know that RAN’s Old Growth Campaign had a major victory last week when AbitibiBowater, the largest paper company in the world, announced that it would immediately stop logging on the Grassy Narrows First Nation’s traditional territory in Ontario, Canada.
RAN’s Old Growth team, along with the Grassy Narrows community, ally organizations in the United States and Canada, and hundreds of activists, volunteers, organizers and donors all over North America contributed to this milestone victory.
Whether you were out on the streets protesting for Indigenous rights for Grassy Narrows, sending emails to Weyerhaeuser executives, donating to RAN, or following the campaign on www.ran.org, you can call in on Thursday and get the inside story of how we did it! Join us for a conference call on Thursday, June 19, at 5 p.m. PST (8 p.m EST) to discuss the anatomy of this successful campaign.

If you ever wondered what strategies we used, which tactics were effective and which weren’t, this is a great opportunity to look back on a great win and learn what worked and what didn’t.
RAN staff and activists who played a key role in this victory will participate during the first portion of the call, and we will be sure to leave plenty of time for questions. Please join us!
