June 6, Noon
In communities across BC
Join us on Thursday, June 6 for a day of action for forests!
On Feb. 6th, we delivered letters to MLA offices across the province to send a message to the BC government: immediate, decisive action must be taken to enact a moratorium on old-growth logging in critical hotspots like the Central Walbran. Protection for Vancouver Island’s last ancient rainforests must be combined with strong support for Indigenous Nations and good long term forestry jobs.
Since then, old-growth forests are still being clearcut, as quickly as ever. Exactly four months since our February action, it’s time to increase the pressure and make sure all BC MLAs get the message.
We’d love for you to join us or to deliver a letter to your own MLA on the same day.
This is a province-wide day of action, and forests are being mismanaged across the province. We invite you to bring forward local forestry problems – and solutions – in your region of British Columbia.
To add an event in your area or do a letter delivery to your MLA, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ve created a toolkit with suggestions, talking points and images you can print out for your visit. We’ll also add your town to the list of MLA visits on our media release!
