I’m writing regarding the protests that occurred on October 31. While it was great to see so many students and others come out to voice their opposition to the FTAA, I was dismayed later that day to find anti-FTAA posters and signs piled up in downtown garbage cans, when they could have been recycled. Environmental accountability (or lack of it) has been a central concern of the anti-FTAA movement. But how can people demand corporate environmental responsibility when they do not even display personal responsibility? What does say about the integrity of the movement? Furthermore, there are a number of recycling bins downtown, so there is virtually no excuse for this sort of neglect. Think about what you are doing people – and make the connection between your actions and the values you claim to stand for!
