A minute of silence for Paris and victims of climate change around the world

It was moving to see the thousands of people marching in Ottawa to stop at the National War Memorial to observe a minute of silence for victims of the tragedy in Paris as well as victims of climate change around the world.

Everything is linked. More than ever, we need to free ourselves from oil and embrace a 100% clean and just economy in order to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. This is the only way to fight against the poverty and injustice causing violence around the world.
