Ashcroft invited to march in support of climate change talks

Nov. 29th march in Ashcroft one of thousands scheduled for around the world.

Ashcroft is showing its support for the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris this week, as well as the concern that the talks deliver a deal that will move the world to a new green economy with 100 per cent clean energy.

At 2 pm on Nov. 29, residents and visitors in Ashcroft and surrounding areas are invited to rally in front of the hospital to demonstrate support for the Prime Minister and Premiers, then march to MLA Jackie Tegart’s office on Railway St.

Avaaz is a global civic organization launched in January 2007 that promotes activism on issues such as climate change, human rights, animal rights, corruption, poverty, and conflict. Avaaz and hundreds of local, national and international organisations are taking to the streets across the world on Nov. 29.

Thousands of events will be held in more than 150 countries to deliver a resounding public message to world leaders.

“The Global Climate March is snowballing into a massive mobilisation of millions around the world who want leaders to do more to stop runaway climate change,” said Michael Morrow, an Avaaz member from Ashcroft.
