Come join us for a group bike ride to Greenpeace's free 40th Anniversary Rainbow Warrior Festival. Meet 12 Noon at the Science World gazebo (across the street from the Main Street Skytrain station).
Founded 40 years ago in Vancouver, Greenpeace has grown to become the world's largest, independent environmental organization. Its commitment to peace and sustainability has inspired 2.9 million supporters in over 40 countries.
The festival features music and speakers on a completely solar powered Rainbow Warrior stage (Maria in the Shower), an action zone to learn how activists take action against polluters (climb training, Zodiac boat tours, banner making), a kids zone for the entire family (face painting, storytelling. colouring), a campaign zone to learn about Greenpeace campaigns (Q&A with campaigners, web action tent, do it yourself silk screening, Greenpeace history in photos), and more!
The festival also celebrates the launch later in the year of the most environmental ship Greenpeace has ever sailed, the Rainbow Warrior III.
The Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition's (VACC's) Bicycle Valet will be at the festival so the whole family can enjoy safe, secure, bicycle parking for free.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
