Communities across the province are coming together to rise up for the last remaining old growth. Join us in Nelson on this day of action! We will be walking a route around downtown, followed by a short rally, speakers, and an opportunity for you to take action to protect our irreplaceable forests at MLA Brittny Anderson’s office.
This is a critical moment for forests in British Columbia. Three years have passed since the B.C. government promised to work with First Nations to implement a paradigm-shift in forest stewardship laid out in the Old Growth Strategic Review. Yet the B.C. government has made little progress on their promises. In fact, most old growth remains on the chopping block. Will you help hold them accountable?
Communities across B.C. and beyond are experiencing the worst fire season on record. Intact forests are one of our best allies in the climate crisis – they help protect us from worsening climate risks like fires and floods, they store massive amounts of carbon, provide fresh air and clean water, and so much more.
For the health and safety of our communities, let’s ramp up the pressure. This September 28 distributed day of action happens right before the B.C. Legislature returns to session. Our actions outside government offices and in key communities across BC will send MLAs back to Victoria with a strong mandate to do more for the forests and all the life they sustain.
Location: Meet outside of Nelson City Hall at 12:30pm and we’ll march through town to MLA Brittny Anderson’s office.
Registration isn’t mandatory at all, but helps us have an idea of numbers (plus we’ll send you a reminder of the time and place a few hours before the event so you don’t forget). But feel free to invite friends, neighbours, coworkers and anyone you meet on the street too!
Please note: Organizers recognize that constituency office staff are not decision makers, and encourage all Day of Action participants to treat staff with kindness and respect.
