Lakeside Strike for Justice and Peace

Start: Friday, September 20, 2019 7:00 AM

End: Friday, September 20, 2019 9:00 AM

Greetings one and all, this email will lay out the basic plan for tomorrow and ask you to do a few things. To maximize our participation tomorrow I am hoping a few people can step forward to volunteer to do some of the tasks defined below - If you can, please email me back and try and arrive by 6:45 am at the site. Our strike action will consist of PEACEFUL PROTEST by chanting, holding placards and getting more involved on site with the actions organized by the Global Climate Strike team. We have positioned the strike to be at the intersection where Lake Shore Drive begins/ends on the Northside. We are hoping to send a message about ending fossil fuel dependence and demanding better transportation alternatives.

CONNECT On the Facebook page, we are composing chants and sign ideas and please feel free to contribute here

You can also invite your friends by sharing.
