We need to recognize we are in a climate emergency, and we need to act on it. Follow live at:


edit: I was unaware that the area I’m hanging in is also Qayqayt territory. It hasn’t been easy to put this video together in under 24 hours while in a tree – so I apologize for that, and any other mistakes.

Also, I haven’t had a chance to add links to these yet, but here are some organizations you can Google, contact, and get involved with:

International Organizations:
Extinction Rebellion
Sunrise Movement
School Strikes 4 Climate
Friday’s for Future

Vancouver Organizations (to be updated):
Extinction Rebellion Vancouver
International Socialists of Canada (http://socialist.ca)
