Extinction Rebellion Halloween Toronto
Vampire (văm′pīr′): 3. a person who preys mercilessly upon others
Extinction Rebellion Toronto will take to Toronto's biggest Hallowe'en party in the Gay Village (Church and Wellesley) and perform a skit that is both haunting and close to home. The skit pits the vampires, seemingly hell-bent on sucking every last drop of oil, water and life out of this planet vs. the rest of us: the land, the plants, animals and people who call this place home.
The situation seems dire. The body count at the vampires' lair rises but, over the hill, in the sleepy village a motley crew of vampire hunters begins to form.
We're actively seeking participants for the different roles in this skit. Vampires, Slayers as well as some victims (if your life goal ever was to be a dead body on CSI, this is your chance)! Wish to come out but improv in the streets not your thing? Don't worry there's going to be opportunities for out-reach and other ways to participate!
This action will commence around Church & Wellesley at 9pm but we will GATHER at Barbara Hall Park (East Side church st. north of Wellesley) at 8:30 for a briefing and some improv warm-up.
EXTINCTION REBELLION ACTION CONSENSUS
If you participate in XR actions, you need to abide by this action consensus: https://rebellion.earth/act-now/action-consensus/
In October 2018, the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warned that we have twelve years to avoid catastrophic climate disaster. The situation is urgent, and we need to act now, and we need our governments to act now.

EXTINCTION REBELLION’S KEY DEMANDS
1. Government must tell the truth by declaring a binding climate and ecological emergency, and by working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change.
2. Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025.
3. Government must create and be led by the decisions of a Citizens’ Assembly on climate and ecological justice.
