Climate Warriors- Start MAKING your SIGNS and Get Ready to MARCH!!

Posters and leaflets are available for pick up from the Wilderness Committee office at 46 East 6th Avenue (near Main and Kingsway). We will do our best to ensure a steady supply but it's probably a good idea to call ahead (604-683-8220) and make sure there are some available.

WC has very generously contributed almost 2000 posters and 2000 leaflets but they won't be able to print any more so kindly refrain from asking them. If your group or organization wants to print their own. please message us directly through the Climate Convergence FB page and we will be happy to email you the pdfs.

We'll also have them at our next Organizing Meeting, Wednesday Oct 19th @Langara College room B144 from 7:00 to 9:00pm and every subsequent meeting.

Prime Minister Trudeau’s decision on Kinder Morgan is fast approaching. Now more than ever we need a show of force to show that – no matter his choice – this region will do whatever it takes to stop this pipeline. We need to bring the spirit of Standing Rock, where Indigenous-led grassroots opposition stopped a pipeline, to the West Coast.

We will start with a brief rally at City Hall followed by a march across the Cambie Street Bridge and end at Library Square with speakers and music. This will be a family friendly event with The Peace Bearers marshalling the march. Further details addressing accessibility are coming soon.

We’re launching a “Take the Pledge” campaign to prepare for escalating actions in the event Trudeau's cabinet approves the Kinder Morgan pipeline at the end of December. People will be able to sign the pledge and commit to supporting whatever action is necessary to stop the pipeline including peaceful civil disobedience. On November 19th we will conduct a mass public pledge to demonstrate to cabinet the scale of opposition they are facing if they attempt to move forward with Kinder Morgan. If Trudeau wants Clayoquot Sound 2.0 in the middle of Metro Vancouver – he’ll get it.

This event takes place on the traditional, unceded, occupied territories of the səlil̓wətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations.

More details coming soon...
