Part of ‘Defend Our Climate’ day of action
What: Ottawa is joining over 100 communities that are participating in a national day of action – ‘Defend Our Climate, Defend Our Communities’ – to highlight the growing opposition to tar sands expansion, pipeline risks, and dangerous climate change. People will attempt to physically build a wall to protect what is in jeopardy – our democracy, Indigenous rights, our values, our environment – and help stop Harper’s flood of tar sands crude and the Energy East pipeline.
Who: Maude Barlow, Chairperson Council of Canadians; Graham Saul, Executive Director Ecology Ottawa; and Ottawa residents from all walks of life. Organized by the Council of Canadians, Ecology Ottawa, 350.org Ottawa, and Greenpeace’s Ottawa Chapter.
Where: Centennial Flame on Parliament Hill.
When: Saturday, November 16th, 1pm
