2. EARTH WALK PLANNERS WANTED

One of the things I have been working for the past five years on is the promotion of the many Grass Roots organizations in Victoria, through the annual Earth Walk. If you have some energy to volunteer to help promote this event let me know.

Thank you
Steve Filipovic
216-5903

Hello Volunteers

You will be happy to know the Earth Walk committee is at it again. Yes its time for the 24th
annual Earth Walk, where we celebrate the Grass Roots of Victoria. So if you are able to assist by volunteering we would most appreciate it.

The Earth Walk is a very fun family event that starts in Victoria's Centennial Square, where
the participants form into a parade and walk down Government Street to the Legislature's Lawns.

You have probably participated before so you know on the Legislature's lawn we celebrate
the many organizations that champion our community, and these organizations set up
information tables to educate people.

The Earth Walk committee is asking for volunteer support for this event.

We have enthusiasm and experience and with your help we will have a great Earth Walk.

Thank you,

Steve Filipovic
Co-coordinator Earth Walk

3. The Tre Arrow Bi-Weekly Newsletter - March 23rd

2) Extradition hearing postponed to June 27th , 2005

Tre?s extradition hearing, initially scheduled for April 2005, has now been
postponed until June 27th, 2005. These three days of hearings will decide
whether Tre will be extradited to the United States to face a possible life
in prison. If the Judge believes that Tre's human rights will be violated in
the United States, or that he will not receive a fair trial, the Judge has
the right to refuse Tre's extradition. The nature of the case is highly
political, and as a result it would be professional suicide for a Judge to
disapprove Tre's return to the United States.

If Tre is extradited, he will be facing an onslaught by the FBI, the largest
investigations bureau in history. The government is seeking a lengthy trial,
potentially lasting for over a year, causing the complete drain of legal
funds. They are most certainly attempting to disseminate fear among the
public by setting an example of Tre. What is happening to Tre Arrow could
conceivably happen to any peaceful defender of the planet and its people. By
supporting him in this time of need, we show each other that friends will
not be left behind.

?I am innocent of the charges the U.S. government is trying to pin on me.
Just as many activists have experienced, I am being targeted by the U.S.
government and the FBI, not because I am guilty, but because I have chosen
to challenge the status quo.?

2.?Coir (Coconut Husk) Bricks for Sale

Back by popular demand: Coir bricks!

Coir is a coarse, brown fibre from the husk of the fruit of the coconut tree.

We are happy to have found a new supplier!
(The Compost Education Centre stopped selling these for about a year while we looked for a new supplier: one that involved fair labour to produce the bricks)

The coir comes in a compact, dehydrated brick-like form. With the addition of water, it expands to an "easy-to-work-with" medium. Adding water increases the volume 8 to 9 times.

Coir can be used as a growing medium for plants (as an alternative to peat). Another popular use is as "bedding" for indoor worm composting bins.

$4.00 per brick for non-members (taxes included)
$3.60 per brick for Compost Club members (taxes included)

The Compost Education Centre is open Wed-Sat from 10am-4pm. Cash or cheque is accepted.
* Please note that the Compost Education Centre is closed on Friday March 25 and Saturday March 26. We will reopen on Wednesday March 30*

Eco-Election Campaign reaches 10 000 BC households so far - Get
involved!

WCWC has just printed 125 000 copies of our new VOTE WILD (Eco-Election)

So far, the WCWC's Eco-Election Campaign has reached 10 000 BC

on the environment. We need YOUR help to reach thousands more...

Organized team outreach efforts are going on in Victoria (every weekend
and many weekdays) and Vancouver (every Tuesday and Saturday) right now,

At a minimum, you can go out for a few hours by yourself in your own
neighborhood anywhere in BC handing out the newspapers, or you can go
with us in a team leafletting in targeted areas - it's fun! And it's
more important than virtually anything else you can do at this time in
BC's history...

PREMIER CAMPBELL'S NATIVE NAME

Premier Campbell was invited to address a major gathering of the Union of
British Columbia Indian Chiefs last weekend in Kamploops. He spoke for
almost an hour on his future plans for increasing every British Columbian
First Nations present standard of living. He referred to his "New Era" as
one for all, and how he has been signing "YES" many times - for every First
Nation's issue that came to his desk for approval.

Although Premier Campbell was vague on the details of his plan, he seemed
most enthusiastic about his future ideas for helping his indigenous friends.
At the conclusion of his speech, the Union of British Columbia Indian Chiefs
presented Premier Campbell with a plaque inscribed with his new First
Nation's name - Walking Eagle.

The proud Premier Campbell then departed in his motorcade, waving to the
crowds. A news reporter later inquired to the group of chiefs of how they
come to select the new name given to the Premier.

They explained that Walking Eagle is the name given to a bird so full of
crap it can no longer fly.
