Time to take to the streets for old-growth!

Hi Paov,

For months now, we’ve been busy organizing what will be a turning point in the decades-long fight to protect old-growth forests. Next week, it’s time to rally.

Along with our partners and a huge team of volunteers, we’ve helped pull together the United For Old Growth march and rally happening next Saturday, February 25 on unceded lək̓ʷəŋən territories (Victoria, BC).

Learn more about what's happening out in the woods. Join us at Centennial Square at noon! We’ll march to the BC Legislature for a massive rally featuring a dazzling line-up of speakers from territories across the province. March: Centennial Square, Noon
Rally: BC Legislature, 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. You’ll hear from:
  • Chief James Hobart, Spô'zêm First Nation
  • Kwakwaka’wakw Hereditary Chief David Knox, Kwakiutl First Nation
  • Janelle Lapointe, Afro-Indigenous climate justice and Indigenous rights organizer, Stellat’en First Nation
  • Elder Bill Jones, Pacheedaht First Nation
  • Rainbow Eyes, land defender, Da'naxda'xw/Awaetlala First Nation
  • David Suzuki, legendary environmentalist and broadcaster
  • Dr. Karen Price, independent ecologist and provincial Old Growth Technical Advisory Panel member
  • Christina Enns, Tla-o-qui-aht/Dakota youth
  • Music: ANSWER Women’s Drum Group and Sarah Osborne

Our demand to the BC NDP government is simple: keep your promise and protect threatened old-growth forests!

The government has made bold commitments on old-growth but has yet to show enough willingness to keep them. Together we can demonstrate how strong the support is to protect these irreplaceable forests:

1. Attend:
Bring your family and friends on Saturday, February 25!

2. Share:
Use the digital amplification kit to help get the word out far and wide!

3. Support:
Planning a giant rally takes a lot of time and money, everything from equipment rentals to promotional costs to honorariums for speakers. If you can help us cover the cost of taking this on, please do!
This moment requires all of us. People power has always been the force for change on environmental issues — let’s make it so again. It’s time to end decades of talk-and-log and safeguard old-growth forests once and for all.

On February 25, all out for old-growth!

For the ancient forests,
