Just Recovery for All

Mass Online Rally

June 23, 2020 - 1:00pm


On June 23, at 1:00 PM MT thousands of people will join a mass Zoom rally organized by Leadnow, 350 Canada, Climate Action Network and Sierra Club BC to create a loud drumbeat across Canada behind the Just Recovery principles launch and deliver petition signatures from various orgs to MPs who will be attending.

Why Take Action?  

The COVID-19 pandemic is one of the biggest global crises of the century and has exposed an economic system unable to meet the needs of people and the planet. Millions of people across the country are grappling with job losses, paying rent and bills, with many frontline workers forced to work without paid sick leave and hazard pay. Unemployment has hit a record of 13% — the highest level since WWII. And after years of austerity, our healthcare and social services are buckling under pressure. 

We know we can’t go back to business as usual of climate inaction and rising inequality. How Canada recovers and rebuilds from the pandemic will shape the next chapter of human history. Right now, our governments are looking for ways to rebuild the economy and they’re listening more than ever — but right-wing interests are pulling out all the stops to lobby for billion dollar bailouts and mass austerity.
