Participants gathered at Vancouver Art Gallery before moving on to different locations in the area, including Pacific Centre mall and Teck Resources Ltd. office on Burrard Street

A die-in is a protest that sees participants lay on the ground, feigning death, symbolizing what will happen as a result of inaction by government leaders.
