Join the People’s Climate Movement in Toronto and around the world to stand up for our climate justice. We want to show the world and our leaders that we will resist fossil fuel projects and policies that attack our people, our communities and our planet.

Plans are underway by labour, environmental, indigenous, and social justice groups for a People's Climate March in Toronto on Saturday April 29th. This will form part of a North American Day of Action initiated by The People’s Climate Movement. The U.S coalition is calling for a massive march in Washington D.C and sister marches across the world, and the Toronto organizing groups have coordinated with the Climate Convergence in Vancouver and other organizations across the country.

Please join us! Bring your friends and family. You are invited to march alongside Greenpeace Toronto Local Group as we rally together on this day to show support to:
 

  • Advance solutions to the climate crisis that are rooted in racial, social and economic justice and committed to protecting front-line communities and workers;

  • Protect our right to clean air, water, land, healthy communities and a world at peace;

  • Recongnize Indigenous Sovereignty, respect for existing Treaties and the right of First Nations to Free, Prior and Informed Consent for all projects on their traditional and unceded territories;

  • Immediately take steps to support immigrants, refugees and communities of colour and LGBTQ2S communities impacted by the attacks on them south of the border and by the dislocation caused by global climate change;

  • Ensure public funds and investments create good paying green jobs that provide a family-sustaining wage and benefits and preserve workers’ rights, including the right to unionize;

  • Fund investments in our communities, people and environment to transition to a new clean and renewable energy economy that works for all; and

  • Protect our basic rights to a free press, protest and free speech.
