Organizing for Climate Justice in Regina

Mother Earth Justice Advocates

A new group advocating for the rights of Mother Earth through climate justice activities is being organized in Regina.

Tentatively calling themselves Mother Earth Justice Advocates, the group evolved out of the Regina People’s Assembly on Climate Justice on December 7, 2010.

The group passed a motion at the People's Assembly in Regina stating:

 "We demand that the Regina, Saskatchewan, and Federal governments live up to all Treaties within Canada and internationally such as the Kyoto Accord, United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and the Declaration of Human Rights.

Further we demand that local, Saskatchewan and Canadian Governments endorse, honour, and implement the Cochabamba Peoples Declaration on the Rights of Mother Earth."

This group is open to anyone interested in honouring and protecting Mother Earth.

The next meeting with be at 7:00 p.m. on December 20, 2010 at the United Way, 1440 Scarth Street, Regina.
