Climate Strike! 1 in 20 Yellowknifers marched in the Capital of Canada’s Northwest Territories !
“…Global March for Climate Change blocks the streets of downtown Yellowknife – Friday, Sep. 27th, 2019 – Roughly one thousand people marched to City Hall in Yellowknife today as part of the Global March for Climate Change. […]
“Dene hide tanners and traditional harvesters have been forced to adjust their connections to land and culture because of the drastic changes in our traditional territories,” Dëneze Nakehk’o, a founding member of Dene Nahjo said. “These close connections have sustained us for generation upon generation since time immemorial. It is also the reason Indigenous Peoples should be on the forefront of climate solutions.” […]
The strike came just days before the territorial election and mere weeks away from the federal election, with many candidates in attendance.
“Today, we’re striking and tomorrow we’ll continue to build a massive movement for a Green New Deal, in the federal election and in our streets and communities after that,” Pretty Ngo, a student spokesperson for the local chapter of Our Time said. […]

the climate emergency. They’re running grassroots campaigns.
And they are championing a made-in-Canada Green New Deal….”
