Student Walk Out - University of Calgary

This September, millions of people worldwide will walk out of schools and businesses to demand climate justice. On September 27th at 10:30 am Calgary students and workers will rally on campus between the pond and metal archway in front of Mac Hall.

(There will also be a climate strike outside of City Hall at 12:00 pm.)

This mass mobilization will serve to bring global focus to the climate crisis and to bring this emergency to the forefront of the upcoming Canadian federal election.

This event takes place in Moh'kinsstis - also known as Calgary. This land is under Treaty with the peoples of the Tsuut'ina Nation, the Stoney Nakoda Nation and the three Nations of the Blackfoot Confederacy - the Piikani, the Kainai, and the Siksika. This land is also home to the Metis Nation of Alberta - Region 3.

We honour the land and the Indigenous Peoples of Moh'kinsstis, and we endeavour to come together in a good way. To organize with a view to stand in solidarity with all communities impacted by climate change on the front lines. With a view to end all economic and social injustice that leads to environmental degradation. With a view to consensus and coalition-building across movements.

 

Are you a student at MRU, AUArts, or St Mary's University? If so, let us know and we'll connect you to organizers on those campuses.

Thank you so much for your hard work to make the success of the climate walkout. To RSVP, please respond to this email.
