September 3, 2016. Here, Clayton Thomas-Muller of 350.org Canada is holding up screenprints by artist Isaac Murdoch at the art-build space in Winnipeg. The banners and signs are for an event to welcome a giant Totem Pole made by House of Tears Carver Society of the Lummi Nation which has travelled north America, notably the Camp of the Sacred Stones #noDAPL in North Dakota.
June 6, 2016 Great graphics, art and spoken word by artists working with 350.org
Feb 8, 2016 A beautiful sketch I saw on the instagram page of @ninagualinga of Sarayaku in Equador.
Feb 6, 2016 I loooove this action that was done tonight by Feral X on the BBC building in London. I lived in the UK throughout 2015 for the first time in 10 years and climate denial by the BBC is dangerous. Time for the BBC to update itself! It belongs to the people not fossil fuel and colonial self destruction.
Feb 5, 2016 I just found this piece when I was browsing the Urban Native Era site. Designed by my buddy Joey Montana, a man of many talents and definitely one to watch! Check out his accompanying text by clicking here too.
December 2015 This is the action team of Indigenous Environmental Network standing with the awesome banner that was dropped for the canoe action at COP21 UN climate conference in Paris. That banner is pure art!
Oct 21, 2015 This poster, featuring words from a speech by Ken Saro-Wiwa, was designed by artist Jon Daniel for the commemoration of the death of the Ogoni 9 twenty years ago. Shell oil paid one of the largest out of court settlements in recognition of the execution of the activists by Nigerian military. The Ogoni people and lands still await reparation for damage caused to the Niger Delta and livelihoods therein, by Royal Dutch Shell plc.
I dont know the name of this artist but I love this….If anyone knows the artist gice me a shout!
June 3, 2015 This is a piece from the Stop Shell Seattle protest happening this week-end, please go if you can. If I could I would! If the name of the artist pops up I’ll post it for sure but til then check the details in the poster, I love the canoe family!!
June 2, 2015 Hey guys, I’m pretty excited as I found more great art produced by the global climate movement, like this beautiful #ProtectOakFlat poster created for the Oak Flat blockade that’s happening right now in Arizona where holy Apache land has been sold to Rio Tinto for resource extraction. I’m going to be blogging about this asap!! Here’s the Facebook page for support… There’s a great NYT article ‘Selling Off Apache Holy Land‘, to get up to speed…

This piece was also made into a beautiful quilt being held by UK Tar Sands Network in this photo
A bit of activism with art direction! I really enjoy all the fun art pranks of BP or not BP / Reclaim The Bard who I believe began by doing impromptu performances at a Shakespeare tour sponsored by BP. This morning they protested the press opening of Indigenous Australia: Enduring Civilisation at the British Museum. Great photo by Amy Scaife
On Earth Day, April 22 2015 the artist Shepard Fairey posted 27 pieces of art on his blog to red flag climate change and express his feelings after reading Naomi Klein’s This Changes Everything. Farey’s words and presentation accompanying the art are here
