On June 4, speak out for nature and democracy

On June 4, NUPGE is joining with faith groups, trade unions, associations, businesses, First Nations, environment groups, human rights groups, pro democracy groups and seniors, across the country, to say: Silence is Not an Option.

Ottawa (01 June 2012) - The National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE) will be joining thousands of Canadians to oppose the Conservative budget in a mass online protest on Monday, June 4.

As Members of Parliament (MPs) consider a budget bill that will vastly transform our environmental protections in the absence of transparent public discussion, NUPGE is joining with faith groups, trade unions, associations, businesses, First Nations, environment groups, human rights groups, pro democracy groups and seniors, across the country, to say: Silence is Not an Option.

On Monday, June 4, the NUPGE website will go black, sending a single, unified message to decision-makers: Protect our Canadian values. Our land, water, and climate. Our communities. Our human rights and democracy.
