Civil Disobedience in a Changing Climate: A public dialogue, Friday Sept. 21, 7:30 pm, Alice Mckay room, VPL

What are our obligations as good citizens if government pursues policies that recklessly endanger our future?

Free, Friday September 21st,
7:30 pm, Alice McKay Room,
Central Branch of the Vancouver Public Library.

We need to start cutting emissions now to avoid runaway climate change. At the same time, our governments encourage increased exports of fossil fuels, making the problem worse. If you find this disconnect deeply disturbing, you’re not alone. If you think that a problem this serious won’t be solved by writing letters and attending rallies, you’re right.

You are invited to an open discussion on why peaceful civil disobedience is an ethical course of action for those concerned about climate change. The discussion will be moderated by James MacKinnon (co-author of The 100-Mile Diet). British Columbians arrested last May for stopping a coal train in White Rock will share their experience and motivations for taking action. Learn more about the practical, legal and financial implications of taking a stand for our future.

Please consider inviting friends to this event who are deeply concerned about climate change, frustrated by the way things are going, and ready to make a difference.

“It’s not enough that we do our best; sometimes we have to do what is required.” — Winston Churchill
