Anita Payne joins climate march

PERTH - Anita Payne, from Perth will walk 1,000 miles across parts of the United States as a part of the Great March for Climate Action.

The purpose of the March is to inspire and motivate the general public and elected officials to act now to address the climate crisis.

It will be the largest coast-to-coast march in U.S. history.

 Marchers will walk 14 to 15 miles per day and camp nearly every night.

Payne, a former provincial Green Party candidate in Perth-Wellington, has long fought for environmental issues.

“We have been dithering too long over whether climate change is real and what we should do about it,” Payne said.

She noted she is excited to represent her home country in this global issue.

She plans to carry a Canadian flag with her as she marches. She hopes that her participation will help recruit more Canadians to the March.

“I am excited to be part of something significant that will affect the changes we so desperately need,” she said.

The March will start in Los Angeles on March 1, reach Phoenix in early April, Denver in early June, Omaha in late July, Chicago in early September, Pittsburgh in October and Washington DC on Nov. 1, 2014.

The Great March for Climate Action is a non-profit organization. Officials say the goal is “to change the heart and mind” of people.
