Huntsville will join the expanding Climate Action Muskoka (CAM) climate strikes this Friday, Feb. 7, at Town Hall from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
“People in Huntsville care deeply about climate change and know we are running out of time,” said Lesley Hastie of CAM. “We urge our political representatives at all levels to make meaningful changes to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the buildings we produce, the transport used, infrastructure and more.”
The group will also hold its 20th Friday climate strike in Bracebridge at Memorial Park; Gravenhurst climate strikers will hold their third strike at the Gravenhurst Post Office. Same time, same place, for all the strikes.
“It’s great that its starting in Huntsville,” said Tamsen Tillsen, founder of the Bracebridge strike. “It’s only an hour a week and, if you are concerned about climate change, it is an opportunity to speak up, speak out, build community, and keep the need for urgent action upfront.”
If you don’t feel like increasing your carbon footprint by driving in to one of the main towns, why not hold a pop-up strike at the end of your driveway or on your own street or rural road?
