Camp Line 9

Coordinator for Camp Line 9

From September 20 to October 4, 2014, an action camp was held in Saint-André-D’Argenteuil which was open to all activists who wanted to get involved in the fight against the arrival of tar
sands in Quebec, whether by pipeline or by train. The camp was located directly on Enbridge Line 9b on a site that had previously experienced a spill. The action camp was a place for training, community building and artistic exploration. It encouraged shared knowledge, discussion groups and consensus. The camp was a moment to network and plan future actions. As the instigator of the event, my role was to coordinate the logistics of the action camp, to plan the trainings and to plan a direct action that took place 2 days after the end of the Camp Line 9. Several direct actions and artistic initiatives against the arrival of tar sands and against fracking for shell oil in Quebec originate from this action camp.
