Plastic Dump demonstration

A Plastic Dump demonstration is planned for Friday, September 13 at noon at the entrance to Parliament Hill.

The purpose of this demonstration is to (1) remind the Federal government that they have promised to ban single-use plastics by 2021 and (2) to remind the general public that discarded single-use plastics pose a serious threat to the environment. Come to the demo and bring your educative signs.

You are also encouraged to collect used single-use plastics (plastic water bottles are our number one target) and bring them along to be publicly dumped. There will also be interesting street theatre, together with music (Raging Grannies) and chants. For more information, contact the OWSAG website www.owsagottawa.org .
