    Fridays for Future

    Hosted by Council of Canadians, London, Ontario, Fossil Free London, Extinction Rebellion Ontario, and Lisa Birtch Carriere Green Party. See the full event information here.

    Our strike has grown! We are striking in front of London City Hall and outside the MP office every Friday from 3-5.


    Student climate strikes are gaining attention and momentum worldwide. Come see what all the fuss is about.

    In solidarity with and inspired by Greta Thunberg, we have decided to spend whatever portion of our Fridays that we can at our local MP's offices striking for Climate.

    In her words, “Even if there is no hope we have to do something. Not having hope is not an excuse for not doing anything. Of course we need hope but the one thing we need more than hope is action because once we start to act hope is everywhere.”

    Don't worry if you don't have any signs -we have some & will make more - we just need people there!

    As Greta says in her call to action;

    "Whoever you are, wherever you are, we need you now to stand outside your parliament or local government office to let them know that we demand climate action.

    Addressing world leaders as the climate conference kicked off, Thunberg said, "We have not come here to beg the world leaders to care for our future. They have ignored us in the past and they will ignore us again. We have come here to let them know that change is coming whether they like it or not. The people will rise to the challenge."
