This Global Climate Strike event, called by Greta Thunberg and #FridaysForFuture, is being co-hosted in London, Ontario, by Idle No More – London.
“We must acknowledge that Indigenous sovereignty is climate action, and that land, water, and sky protectors have been at the forefront of these movements for decades. Join us as we respectfully acknowledge the work that has already been done as we come together to continue that work.”
Idle No More London will be incorporating a round dance for climate, and all Indigenous people, groups, drums, have been invited to lead the march.

Here is Greta’s call for the November 29th global strike, tweeted on October 13th:
Over 7,5 million people in over 180 countries joined the #climatestrike! We told world leaders to unite behind the science and take action now.
They didn’t listen.
So we go on, every Friday. The next global climate strike is Nov 29, and we need everyone to join! #fridaysforfuture pic.twitter.com/MDF8isDLhi

All out for climate action!
On September 20th, over 350 Londoners walked out of their schools and workplaces and assembled outside City Hall. On September 27th, over 3,000 Londoners joined the climate strike! If you weren’t there, sorry you missed it! See our media page for press reports, photos and videos… and come join us November 29th! Let’s make it an even bigger event!
The fight for climate justice does not end here! This is just the beginning. We will have to do a lot more to ensure that our leaders take urgent action to halt climate change and biodiversity loss.
London students will be on strike outside City Hall EVERY FRIDAY from 3-5pm. Come and join them! They need our solidarity and support!
This is not a drill. If we don’t sound the alarm, who will?
This September, millions of people all around the work walked out of our workplaces and homes to join young climate strikers on the streets and demand an end to the age of fossil fuels.
Our house is on fire — let’s act like it. We demand climate justice for everyone.
