On April 29th we will be in the streets across Turtle Island to show the world and our leaders that we will resist fossil fuel projects and policies that attack our people, our communities and our planet.
We invite you to join the Peoples Climate Movement on Saturday, April 29th as we march in solidarity with Washington to:
• Advance solutions to the climate crisis that are rooted in racial, social and economic justice and committed to protecting front-line communities and workers.
• Protect our right to clean air, water, land, healthy communities and a world at peace.
• Demand recognition of Indigenous Sovereignty, respect for existing Treaties and the right of First Nations to Free, Prior and Informed Consent for all projects on their traditional and unceded territories.
• Immediately take steps to support immigrants, refugees and communities of colour and LGBTQ2I communities impacted by the attacks on them south of the border and by the dislocation caused by global climate change
• Ensure public funds and investments create good paying green jobs that provide a family-sustaining wage and benefits and preserve workers’ rights, including the right to unionize.
• Fund investments in our communities, people and environment to transition to a new clean and renewable energy economy that works for all.
• Protect our basic rights to a free press, protest and free speech
We will be holding a series of educational activities in the week prior to the April 29th rally/march, and using the energy generated by the March to direct people into a week of coordinated actions to create lasting change for all.
Use the hashtags #KeepItInTheGround #RespectTheTreaties#TakeToTheStreets #WaterIsLife #PCMToronto when posting about the March, or related events!
To get involved in organizing, or for more information contact:
Donald Trump is a threat to the future of our planet, the safety of our communities, and the health of our families. And Trudeau is complicit in his climate denial.
The new administration has attacked the hard-won protections of our climate, health, and communities, and the rights of people of color, workers, indigenous people, immigrants, women, LGBTQIA, young people, and more. And Canada's leaders have done little to decry these actions.
We've fought back with a wave of protests larger than at almost any other point in history — let's make sure that we mark the 100th day of Trump's presidency with another mass action that stands up for our communities.
Join us on April 29th at Allan Gardens at 19 Horticultural Ave. Let's march together.
