A public discussion: Should citizens concerned about climate change consider peaceful civil disobedience?
The 13 people arrested in White Rock for stopping a coal train last May will be present at a public discussion on peaceful civil disobedience as an ethical choice at a time when, according to scientists, the Earth is poised at the brink of irreversible climate change. James MacKinnon, the co-author of The Hundred Mile Diet will moderate the discussion. There will be information regarding the practical, legal and financial implications of this form of action.
The discussion, "Civil Disobedience in a Changing Climate" is taking place on Friday, September 21, from 7:30 - 9:30 pm in The Alice McKay Room, Central Branch at the Vancouver Public Library.
