Piggybacking on the worldwide 350.org actions (see page 8), the Friends of the Halifax Common plan to chalk out the boundaries of the original Halifax Common, an area more than three times the Common's present-day area.
"The degradation and disappearance of the Halifax Common is a metaphor for the degradation of the global Common," the group writes in a press release. "Without truly integrating our ecology and our economy, we will continue to create larger and larger deadzones."
The chalking takes place Friday, noon-2pm. The line will stretch from Cunard Street, down Robie to South, over to South Park, north to Bell Road and around the back side of the Citadel back to Cunard.
