Dec. 11 Mass Direct Action Against Climate Change

World Trade Centre office building blockaded in Vancouver

In solidarity with activists at the Cancun climate talks and people around the world,  activists from Metro Vancouver Council of Canadians chapters participated with many local allies in a climate justice rally in downtown Vancouver on Saturday, Dec. 11. As a symbolic direct action to highlight the inaction of the government of British Columbia on climate issues, the demonstrators sandbagged the Vancouver offices of the BC premier and cabinet.
