Australian Bushfire Solidarity and Climate Action Rally
January 17, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
At this rally, co-hosted by Fridays for Future Toronto, we will be standing in solidarity with all those who have suffered in the climate-change driven bushfires. We will also be calling out the Australian government for its inaction on the climate crisis. The Australian government has ignored warnings, disparaged climate science, and obstructed international efforts to curb the rise of greenhouse gas emissions. We demand that the government reverses course, sets science-based emissions reductions targets in keeping with UN IPCC goals, and act as responsible global citizen.
We will be rallying at 12 pm at Queen’s Park (South) and marching at 12:30 to the Australian Consulate at 175 Bloor St. E where we will peacefully protest from 1pm to 2 pm.
