Friday Nov 29th, 2019, 11:00am-1:30pm — STRIKE DAY! Global Climate Strike. Waterloo Town Square.
The climate crisis is still accelerating, so young climate strikers are calling on everyone to step up for action once more this November 29th. Parents, workers and all concerned humans around the world … come join in solidarity during these wintry months for another beautiful climate strike! This is a family and kid-friendly event, following on the power of this community’s previous climate strike last September, and this time will include a speakers panel on Canada’s climate responsibilities indoors following a short rally.
We’re not stopping until Climate Crisis solution is in hand. Let’s keep up the pressure.
