celebrating life and honoring the interdependency of all things!
2_w338_h303_s1_PL15_PCffffff.jpgUNPLUG 2014 is an invitation to all people to show our commitment to and respect for Mother Earth by challenging unhealthy patterns of consumption and the continued production of poisons that destroy our environment. It is a day to recognize our over-consumption and address our unhealthy lifestyles – a day to challenge ourselves and our communities to make better choices.

UNPLUG was originally introduced by Indigenous Peoples in 1992 in response to the 500 year anniversary of the arrival of Columbus to the Americas. October 13, 1992 was designated as a starting point to look forward to the next 500 years and work to make a sustainable and just world, starting by giving Mother Earth a rest!

October 13th is a day to UNPLUG by turning off the TV, computer, and radio, shut off the taps, and leave the fossil-fuel burning vehicle at home!

The “UNPLUG To Give Mother Earth a Day of Rest” is one element of the Earth Rights Days of Action Campaign. During our collective UNPLUG To Give Mother Earth a Day of Rest, take a walk with friends and family, tell stories, do something artistic, and say a prayer for Mother Earth and our communities. Honor the recognition that all members of our Earth Community have the right to a healthy environment and we have a responsibility to all.
