On Sunday, July 5th, in Toronto, thousands will crowd the streets to carry the message to leaders meeting for the Climate Summit of the Americas from July 7-9 that the time to take action for Jobs, Justice and the Climate is now!

350 Ottawa, a grassroots environmental group, is organizing an Ottawa presence at this important event.  Bus transportation has now been arranged.   Click here and secure your spot as soon as possible.

Naomi Klein points out that “This march is our chance to show exactly how lowering our emissions in line with scientific imperatives can build a fairer and more equitable society -- by respecting First Nations land rights; by creating countless "climate" jobs that pay a living wage; by encouraging community-controlled renewable energy; by making affordable and reliable transit a top policy priority; by investing in the low-carbon caring-giving and sanitation work that is primarily done by immigrants; by opening our borders to those displaced by climate change; and by changing our food system to encourage more local production and to guarantee food for all.

Seats are still available.  Please sign up and secure yours now.
