MASS CALL OUT: DOWN WITH DIRTY OIL DIPLOMACY – NOVEMBER 20th
On NOVEMBER 20TH at Canada House, Trafalgar Square, oil executives, bankers and dirty diplomats will be gathering to plot and scheme about how to expand the tar sands industry and turn Canada into an energy superpower.
WE CAN’T LET THIS MEETING HAPPEN!
The Canadian government continues to try and promote itself as a human rights loving, tree-hugging government in an effort to keep peddling its highly-polluting petroleum. We can’t let this carry on under our noses.
The Canadian government has wiped out its own environmental laws, is trampling on First Nations’ rights, and seems hell-bent on extracting every last drop of tar by whatever means necessary. Dirty diplomats have been deployed all over the EU to undermine climate legislation which would make Europe off-limits to tar sands exports. Tar sands extraction is devastating vital ecosystems, threatening the lives of communities and pushing us into catastrophic climate change.
Join us at 8:00 AM on NOVEMBER 20TH at the bottom of the steps of the NATIONAL GALLERY. This protest will be most effective if lots of people arrive on time and are prepared to stay for a while, so please be prompt and be prepared to stick around for as long as you can. However, if you can only come late or for a short period that’s fine too, we still want you there!
If you are a theatrical type, email firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved in a surprise pop-up performance which will also happen on the day. Meeting THIS THURSDAY @ 6:30pm – email us for more information.
