Hands Off Old Growth
Saturday, June 12, 2021 at 12 PM PDT
Price: Free
Public Anyone on or off Facebook
Direct action in solidarity with front line rebels at Fairy Creek who are risking arrest and facing violence for defending the future generations.
In defence of the old growth forests and the future of people in this country, Extinction Rebellion will be blockading Broadway and Cambie in the form of a sit-in.
Location: City Hall @ 12 PM (for rally), then march to Broadway and Cambie.
We will occupy the intersection for an indefinite period of time.
The BC government has made it clear that it intends on destroying some of the last old growth forests in BC and therefore, continuing the destruction of this country and the livelihoods of future generations.
Join us for a day of community building, music and holding space in solidarity with Fairy Creek and to demand a national citizens assembly to oversee a transition to net zero carbon emissions by 2025.
We gratefully acknowledge that this action will take place on the unceded and stolen land of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
