Ambrose would not face dissent

About twenty Singers of the Sacred Web (and friends) gathered at the airport to welcome Minister for the Environment, Rona Ambrose, to Regina. Standing around Shelley Sopher's photographic installation of the Old Man on His Back Tipi Ring we sang two songs written by songwriter, spiritual feminist, and social activist, Carolyn McDade. The songs, based on words from the Earth Charter, apparently frightened the Honourable Minister away.

We sang:
We of Earth
We declare our responsibility
To the whole, to the future
We of Earth declare
(which has a few more verses) and
We are one
One human family
One Earth community
A common destiny for all
How sad the Minister lacked the courage to listen to our voices raised in song!
