Climate Action Rally in the Valley happens Sunday

Gather at Simms Park at 2:45 p.m., and march together to Sid Plaza

Join the parade of colourful people as we gather en masse to demand Canada’s leadership in Paris.

On Sunday Nov. 29,  gather at Simms Park at 2:45 p.m., and march together to Sid Plaza for a 3 p.m. rally.

The parade will leave from Simms Park (across from Lewis Park) promptly and promenade along the Fifth Street bridge, to the Sid Williams Theatre courtyard where the rally will take place.

Everyone is invited to  “chant for change” with the musical accompaniment of drummers and percussionists.

Speakers, dancers and singers are invited to express climate change action creatively.  Then  the public will have the chance at an open mic to share their personal pledges for climate action.

The organizers want to give special thanks to Comox Valley Transit for their support – tour a local bus and plan how to use transit more often as part of your pledge.

This event is part of the Global Climate March. On Nov. 30, world leaders meet in Paris to start negotiating the next global climate deal.

On Nov. 29, people around the world will take to the streets and push leaders at every level of government to commit to 100 per cent clean energy.
