Climate Rally Set For Saturday In Salmon Arm

City Hall2

Friday will see climate rallies around the globe, including here in Salmon Arm and in Revelstoke.

Salmon Arm organizer Julia Beatty has word on the inspiration, saying "It's part of a global movement that was actually inspired by Greta Thunberg, a 16 year old student in Sweden. There's going to be many of these happening, both on the 20th and the 27th."

Protesters will gather at the Ross Street Plaza for 1pm.

Beatty says that several local election candidates have been invited "Probably get a speech or two from one of the local federal election candidates, and we're also hoping to hear what their plans are for climate action."

Their rally will end over at City Hall.

A similar rally is set for Revelstoke's City Hall on Friday - for 11:30am.
