Extinction Rebellion Nova Scotia is shocked to learn that just weeks after local students organized a march of 10,000 to call for an end to the destruction of our planet, the Halifax Chamber of Commerce and the Halifax Convention Centre are arranging a speech by the President of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP), a climate denialist group that opposes climate action and pushes for the continued growth and expansion of fossil fuel mega-corporations.

News release: On Thursday, June 6, a group of climate activists disrupted rush-hour traffic by biking far below the speed limit. Adorned with signs and flags advocating for climate action, they chanted songs like “11 years to switch the gears” and “what do we want? Climate action!” through the cacophony of car horns.

News release: Westfor have announced on CBC that they are planning to cut the Corbett-Dalhousie Lake forest any day now. Through non-violent direct action, Extinction Rebellion Forest Protectors intend to protect this forest, an ecologically intact mixed hardwood forest in the midst of a sea of clear-cuts.
