Council of Canadians Honorary Chairperson Maude Barlow joined a crowd of protestors who brought the rallying cry for a Green New Deal and urgent action on the climate crisis to Capitol Hill in Washington last week.
Marching alongside Jane Fonda and crowds of environmental activists, Indigenous water warriors and land defenders, she helped bring attention to the water and climate crises.
As reported by the LA Times, the activists marched toward the Supreme Court last Friday to demand new water regulations as part of the ongoing campaign to raise climate-crisis awareness.
Barlow spoke at the podium wearing a vibrant red “Canada” shirt. She shared stories and information of links between water and climate.
