Subject: Change of venue for Oct. 7th Feast for the Global Commons

Greetings.  Because the weather forecast calls for wind and rain tomorrow, 
Thursday, the venue for the Feast for the Global Commons has been moved to 
the Bloomfield Centre, 2786 Agricola St. (just South of the junction with 
Almon St.).

Final Notice (with some changes; see below) -- Please spread the word!
You are invited to.

A Feast for the Global Commons (October 7th)

 Climate change is happening now.  People are being affected by it more and 
more as each day passes.  We need to continue doing our individual actions 
to reduce carbon emissions and to pressure our political leaders to regulate 
reductions in greenhouse  gases.

Not sure how to be heard?  How about getting together with others in the 
greater Halifax area for a community potluck?

In celebration of the International Day for Climate Action, come with your 
family and friends to the Feast for the Global Commons, sponsored by the 
Nova Scotia Coalition for Climate Action:
* From 4:30 to 7:00 PM, Thursday, October 7th;
* Halifax Common, West side of the Pavilion, by Cogswell St. (in case of 
rain, this event will be held in the Bloomfield Centre, 2786 Agricola St.)

Join us for a delicious potluck dinner (if you're busy and can't prepare 
anything, there will be extra food available!) , combined with the robust 
commentary of MC Cathy Jones, community and political speakers and some 
sweet music from start to finish.  We're gathering on the triangle west of 
the Pavilion to rally together to talk about what we're doing to combat 
climate change and to show our political leaders what we expect from them.

Be part of the international 350.org 10/10/10 movement, this potluck being 
one of 5127 events in 174 countries.  If we all stand up they can't ignore 
us for long.
