Join us for the September meeting of People’s Climate Convergence, where the diverse strands of the climate justice movement come together every month to strategize, organize and build grassroots mobilization.
This month we’re announcing a major fall mobilization to Stop Kinder Morgan with speeches from key activists, discussion on and details on how you can help to build it. With cabinet’s final decision approaching in December this a is a crucial moment for us to demonstrate the broadest possible scale of opposition to this project.

******SATURDAY @ SUNDAY, September 24 and 25 – Greet the GARbarge – Steveston Fishermans Wharf – 10:00 am Sat to 4 pm Sun

The GarBarge will be bringing an estimated 40 tonnes of plastic and other marine debris to Steveston Fisherman’s Wharf and we need your help to sort and recycle it!
Groups have been working hard this year to remove plastic and other marine debris from Vancouver Island’s remote and (otherwise) pristine west coast beaches before it endangers wildlife. By bringing our recoveries to Steveston, we hope to raise awareness of the magnitude of this issue in B.C., as well as improve our chances of getting the material recycled and repurposed.
The event will include a presentation and thanks to the Government of Japan for its gift of $1 million, that helped fund the groups listed below to collect the debris.
