Join us at 2:30pm on Friday, December 7 outside the office of Hamilton West-Ancaster-Dundas Liberal MP Filomena Tassi (1636 Main West, Hamilton, Ontario) for a rally to pressure the Liberals to take real, meaningful action on the climate crisis.
The struggle for climate justice seems like nothing but a series of crucial moments these days...but nonetheless, early December is a crucial period for putting pressure on the federal government.
* December 3 - 15 is the first international review of the Paris Accord since the release of the grave UN climate reports earlier this year
* December 7 marks Prime Minister Trudeau's meeting with provincial premiers on carbon taxation
* December 7 also marks a scheduled meeting of Filomena Tassi with her climate advisory committee, which will report to the rally on their conversations with her that day
We need serious action on climate NOW!
This event is organized by Hamilton 350. You can be in touch with us by email at email@example.com. Check out our website at www.hamilton350.org. And you can find the event page on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/events/602198283548745/.
For the last couple of years, Hamilton 350 has been active on a variety of campaigns -- for instance, our campaign last year against the expansion of Enbridge's Line 10 tarsands pipeline, which runs through rural Hamilton. The image below is from a reading of the Dr. Seuss book The Lorax that we did at one of their construction sites in autumn of 2017.
Despite all of our hard work, however, we have not done a good job of using our website to communicate what we're up to and how Hamiltonians can get involved. As part of a broader process of shifting our activities over the fall of 2018, we have committed to expanding our online presence. We hope that this website can become a hub for local climate information. We want this to include highlighting local climate-related events and actions, as well as publishing both pointers to good climate content published elsewhere and our own original content by group members and the group as a whole. We will also be continuing our regular updates via our email list -- subscribe here -- and Facebook page, and our long-dormant Twitter account is now up and running again.
This is still a work in progress, but we're off to a good start. Please check back soon!
