MONTREAL Joins Millions for Climate Wake-Up Call

Flashmob to alert Canadian leaders that they need to fight Climate Change

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 21, 2009) - At 5:30pm on September 21st, 2009, residents of Montreal will gather in front of Place des Arts for a fun, peaceful, "flash mob". As synchronized phone alarms sound, people will freeze, hold their phones in the air and make as much noise as possible to "sound the alarm" for the climate. Afterwards, they will join other groups around the globe in sending a flood of phone calls to world leaders urging climate action.

"Citizens, students and organizations are all taking part to show the huge level of public concern for the climate. We also want to see the Climate Change Accountability Act passed in Canada before December," said Aleah Loney, an Avaaz.org member and coordinator of the Montreal event.

A broad coalition of environmental and anti-poverty organisations as well as faith, civic and youth networks - called the Tck Tck Tck (http://www.tcktcktck.org) campaign is organizing the Global Wake-Up call.
