The Sustainabiliteens are organizing participation in the Global Climate Strike being organized for September 27. The following is a message from them, including details of the action in Vancouver. Please note that although terms such as "strike" and "general strike" are being used, there is no legal mechanism which provides the right to strike (i.e. walk off the job) in relation to this action. Therefore, if you intend to participate during regular working hours please consult with your union in advance

ORGANIZERS ARE EXPECTING huge numbers to turn out for the Global Climate Strike, beginning on September 20 and continuing through September 27. It builds on the first global climate strike, which took place on March 15, and attracted an estimated 1.6 million young people, who walked out of class at schools on every continent.

It’s another legal hurdle for the Trans Mountain pipeline and oil tanker expansion proposal.

Today, B.C.’s Court of Appeal ordered provincial ministers to reconsider the conditions hastily attached to the project by former Premier Christy Clark.

There’s no timeline on that process, but First Nations are encouraging the province to partner with them and “jointly review” Trans Mountain’s threats to rivers, beaches, drinking water, neighbourhoods and human health.
