Earth Day in Vancouver: Youth-led action against tankers and pipelines

Vancouver's Earth Day Parade and Celebration is this Sunday.

We are a group of high school students who call ourselves “Youth 4 Climate Justice Now,” and we are organizing this year’s Vancouver Earth Day Parade & Celebration, hoping to build upon last year’s Earth Day event that brought out over 1,500 passionate people out to the streets on Vancouver.

This Sunday, April 22, 2012, starting at 11 a.m., people will be gathering at Commercial Drive Skytrain Station to march down to Grandview Park for speakers and entertainment. If you are in Vancouver, we hope you can join us. If you are somewhere else in Canada, look for an Earth Day event near you.
