NEWS: Toronto people’s assembly for climate justice ‘a can’t miss event’

Toronto’s NOW magazine says that, “As global warming talks in Cancún heat up, the Council of Canadians, Greenpeace, OPIRG-Toronto and other groups host a People’s Assembly On Climate Justice, Saturday (December 4), 9:30 am to 5 pm.”

“The orgs host the global day in solidarity with international coalition La Via Campesina, which has little faith in the current process and calls for the creation of a ‘thousand Cancúns’ to generate local, grassroots responses to the climate crisis.”

“Hear a roster of speakers and much strategizing.” Council of Canadians climate justice campaigner Andrea Harden-Donahue will be joining this people’s assembly via Skype from Cancun.

The Council of Canadians is participating in more than a dozen people’s assemblies for climate justice across Canada. For a list of these assemblies, please go to www.canadians.org/assemblies.
