Global Climate Strike - Sept 27
The Sustainabiliteens are organizing participation in the Global Climate Strike being organized for September 27. The following is a message from them, including details of the action in Vancouver. Please note that although terms such as "strike" and "general strike" are being used, there is no legal mechanism which provides the right to strike (i.e. walk off the job) in relation to this action. Therefore, if you intend to participate during regular working hours please consult with your union in advance.
On September 27th, we will stand together with people across the planet to demand climate justice. This global strike is not just for youth - this time, we need EVERYONE. We need you to put your normal life on hold and show up in the streets to demand dramatic and urgent action against the climate crisis. We will bring together citizens from Vancouver, the surrounding areas and the rest of BC to show our local and federal governments how much bolder we need them to be going forward. This action will build momentum to a federal election where we elect climate leaders.
Start at Vancouver City Hall
March across Cambie St. Bridge and end at West Georgia & Hamilton St.
