Shift Power, Take Action!

Harper, Clark and big oil are ramping up their campaign to push pipelines and fracking through BC opposition. Let them know we won't back down by joining the PowerShift BC Day of Action!

This fall, we’ve seen the Federal and Provincial governments renew their push to turn BC into a Carbon Corridor. From tar sands pipelines like the Northern Gateway and Kinder Morgan, to Fracking, LNG and coal exports, we face a critical choice. Will we choose a just and sustainable future or to become a gateway to climate disaster?

Government and industry seem dedicated to pushing through pipelines, despite a resounding “No” that has been issued by First Nations and communities all across the province. Join us in sending a message that if they build it, we will come together across generations and block it.

What: PowerShift BC March and Action. Hundreds of youth from across the province and beyond will take to the streets to demand a just and sustainable future ending at the BC Legislature where we will stage a mass civil disobedience training with hundreds of youth and allies.

March details TBA.

The PowerShift October 7th Day of Action is being organized in solidarity with Idle No More’s National Day of Action on the 250th anniversary of the signing of the Royal Proclamation. For more information please check out:

This event is being held on unceded Esquimalt and Songhees territory

Accessibility info:

This event will be held on city streets and sidewalks as well as the lawn of the BC legislature. Each of these places is wheelchair accessible.

The legislature is not currently in session, therefore the most likely place for wheelchair accessible restrooms will be nearby shops and restaurants.

The march will take place over the course of 30 - 45 minutes, and will be a maximum of 2 km. Please stay tuned for more details and let us know if you require assistance to ensure your participation!
