Saturday - People's Assembly for Climate Justice
London CoC Supporters,
The next major round of UN climate negotiations will be held in Cancun Nov. 29 to December 10. The last one in Copenhagen failed miserably.
Why wait for governments to take action? Join a People’s Assembly and help make climate justice a reality. People’s Assemblies are movement-building and organizing events. The focus is on dialogue and transforming awareness into action through community-based climate justice actions.
Citizens in 14 Canadian cities are meeting this week in similar Assemblies. Join us in figuring out what we can do, here in London.
1:00pm: Sean Hurley (long-time environmental activist); and Cory Morningstar (from Canadians for Action on Climate Change)
1:30pm to 4pm: Community dialogue about how to turn awareness into action through collective action and community collaboration, right here in London.
(During a break, refreshments will be provided free of charge)
WHERE - Black Shire Pub -- 511 Talbot (upstairs), London, Ontario [see map]
Endorsing Organizations: ReForest London, People for Peace, Climate Justice London, Thames Regional Ecological Association, Waste Free World, Post-Carbon London, Common Cause, Iconoclast Media, The Circle Women’s Centre, Canadians for Action on Climate Change
