For the Global Climate Strike on November 29 (11:30 at Queen's Park), Toronto350 joins Fridays For Future Toronto/GTA to demand climate justice. As a key part of the rally and march, we will confront RBC, Canada's largest financer of the fossil fuel industry.

A Rising Movement - Global Climate Strike September 27th
I can come up with a lot of words to describe Friday the 27th, the day of the Global Climate Strike, but like the grounds of Queens Park, they just aren’t big enough. They cannot contain all of the power, excitement and promise of the day.
The official numbers from police are 15,000 for the rally and 20,000 for the march, but calculations from a Fridays for Future tweet, put the number closer to 80,000 and Greenpeace Canada estimates 50,000-100,000. The message of the day was broadcast loud and clear - we are in a climate emergency, our house is on fire and we need swift action from those in power, to douse the fast rising flames.

A Parent's Perspective on Fridays for Future
As I hurried across the road towards Queen's Park at 12:30 on May 24, my heart sank. Instead of the familiar sight of a crowd waving signs and the familiar sound of a voice coming through a loudspeaker, I was met with silence and emptiness. Had everyone run out of steam after that huge National Strike on May 3 (over 2,500 people)? Did they all stop caring?Read more
