STRIKE: Noon Friday Jan 17th,2020 TheMuseum

Friday’s for Future Strike

@ THEMUSEUM
Noon, Friday January 17
Downtown Kitchener

Support the Wet’suwet’en People

Please join our (very hastily organized) climate strike tomorrow at NOON in front of THEMUSEUM (10 King Street West, Kitchener).

THEMUSEUM has kindly invited us to hold a Fridays for Future strike there to coincide with their banner drop to announce the  upcoming opening of their ALARM exhibits in response to the climate crisis.  We have decided to strike in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en people.

Indigenous sovereignty is climate action.

We are going into a climate-changed future together and climate justice will define what that future will look like.

Bring your signs and noise makers  🙂   We will have some fun!

Thank you for your ongoing support for Divest Waterloo and for your part in our collective action to raise awareness and engage our community on issues related to climate change, our pursuit of a low carbon economy, and our movement towards a just and sustainable future.
