Torontonians will gather in solidarity with climate activists who have been fasting in Ottawa on Parliament Hill since Sept. 21st, International Day of Peace. They will end their fast on Tues. Oct. 2, International Day of Non-Violence.
The group is demanding that the Federal Government: 1) fulfill its promise to stop fossil fuel subsidies; 2) put a price on carbon; and 3) develop a National Renewable Energy Plan.
The public are encouraged to pledge to fast, and to contact their MP, or write to their local newspapers. Sample letters and more details can be found here: www.climatefast.ca
