Climate Momentum is leading a march to end fossil fuels on Sunday, September 17., with the support of Perth County Sustainability, the Future Ground Network, and other environmental organizations. Our climate march is non-partisan. We’re not here to accuse anyone, we only want to express, in the strongest possible way, our support for measures to end fossil fuels.

We warmly welcome participants from neighbouring areas; please come and hold up a sign to indicate where you travelled from!

MARCH DETAILS: please use sidewalks only; no standing in roadways. Please be courteous to businesses, pedestrians, and visitors. We are building bridges, not walls!

We will meet at 1:15 on Sunday, September 17 for a sign making workshop at the Falstaff Centre, 35 Waterloo Street, Stratford. No plastic signs, please. Bring cardboard if you have it, but we’re also collecting cardboard (thank you, Gentle Rain Health Foods!) . We’ll  also have a supply of markers at the workshop, but if you have some handy, bring them.

We march at 2 pm, arriving at the front steps of City Hall at 2:30 pm. If you can’t attend the sign making workshop, you can meet us there.

At 2:30 pm we’ll gather on the front steps of City Hall. We’ll have a short round of speeches and music. It’s important to remember that this is not a protest march against any level of government. This is a march to express our support for actions that end the use of fossil fuels.
