Where: Ryerson Student Centre, 55 Gould St, Toronto

To mark the 41st annual celebration of International Earth Day, the People’s Assembly on Climate Justice will assemble for its Third Toronto Assembly on Saturday April 23rd, 2011 from 10am-5pm at the Ryerson Student Centre.
To commemorate Earth Day, we will:
• Reflect upon the victories achieved in more than four decades of mobilizing to protect our Mother Earth.
• Network and connect local struggles
• Plan a large-scale collective action
• Explore the intersection between spirituality and climate justice.
• Participate in hands-on workshops and create art.
• Contribute to the creation of a Climate Justice Popular Consultation.
Across our city and around the world, the power of people’s assemblies are leading us towards a new grassroots paradigm that transcends government and corporate inertia. Waves of people-powered uprisings are sweeping across the Middle East. Austerity measures are being met with mass mobilizations in Europe. And hundreds of thousands are resisting the corporate takeover through marches and occupations in the U.S.
Join the People’s Assembly on April 23rd, 2011, and continue the realization of an inclusive, united, and empowered Climate Justice Movement in Toronto.
About the Toronto People’s Assembly on Climate Justice:
On June 23rd, 2010, the People’s Assembly on Climate Justice came to life in Toronto as part of the community resistance to the G20. On December 4th, 2010, a second instalment solidified the Assembly as a permanent space for ongoing, community-based, collective dialogue to confront the climate crisis.
Our goal is not just to demand action, it is also to manifest a new form of organizational paradigm to generate positive, radical, participatory solutions within our urban context. Together we can reinvent cycles that positively participate in the health and ecology of the planet, while transforming our dependence on the industrial system.
