All life on earth is headed for extinction, and that includes us! We demand system change immediately.

Extinction Rebellion Toronto will be welcoming rebels from across Ontario to stand with their counterparts both across Canada and across the world to mark the beginning of the Autumn Rebellion! Join us to send a poweful message and disrupt business as usual.

Meet at 7:30 AM sharp for debriefing in Playter Gardens Park (north side of Danforth, west of Broadview Station).

We will begin our disruption at 8AM.

A full debrief of the event will occur on 10 October at the Centre for Social Innovation (192 Spadina Ave, Toronto, ON M5T 2C2). It will run 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM.

While we have a charter right to freedom of assembly in a public space -- including the streets -- the police also have a strong legal right to perform their duties to maintain public order. When these rights overlap it is important to understand the possible legal consequences.

✔️ We believe that the park will be a green zone throughout the action with an extremely small chance of arrest.

⚠️ The road will be a yellow zone -- protestors can occupy city streets and often do so without arrest -- but it is possible, though unlikely, that police may determine this gathering unlawful and arrest people.


If police specifically order people to clear the road and state verbally that those who do not comply will be arrested, the road will become a red zone where chances of arrest are high, but impossible to predict.

While we highly recommend that you attend a Non-Violent Direct Action training, you can also inform yourself of potential outcomes with this document (https://docs.google.com/…/1agQ1Fs6Ij4TMFkIbMtDQbGrWun…/edit…).

This action will be supported by the Movement Defense Committee (a team of volunteer lawyers) and you should call this number (416 833 6137) if you are arrested.

⚠️⚠️⚠️ Extinction Rebellion Toronto cannot guarantee legal representation for anyone arrested during this action beyond this initial phone call but the Movement Defense Committee will advise you on retaining a lawyer. ⚠️⚠️⚠️
