people-climate-march

Join us as we call on Mayor de Blasio to make stronger commitments on climate before he goes to the UN Climate Talks in Paris. The climate crisis is real and NYC must take leadership by enacting policies that dramatically reduce our carbon emissions. NYC alone produces more greenhouse gas emissions than 97 countries!

Because the French authorities have said they will not allow the big climate march on Nov. 29, the day before the UN Climate Talks begin, it is even more important that around the world our voices are heard. More than 2,300 actions in over 150 cities will take place next weekend. Let’s make sure ours here in NYC is as strong and powerful as we can possibly make it! Let’s re-commit ourselves to our global family. Let us gather in a unified call against violence and hatred and for climate justice and peace. Bring your families and friends!

At 2 pm we will gathering on the plaza on the east side of City Hall, the Brooklyn Bridge side. We hope to make this as large as possible…aiming for 1,000 people, if we can! We will march around City Hall, on the sidewalks, chanting and singing. Mayor Bill de Blasio is expected to go to Paris for the talks. We will call on him to commit now to bold steps to move NYC to 100% renewable energy by 2030:

•Develop off-shore wind power
•Require all large buildings to be energy efficient
•Divest NYC funds from all fossil fuels
•Convert City-owned buildings to solar and other renewable energy sources
•Provide locally grown foods in city programs and protect our community gardens
•Expand and improve our public mass transit system

Initiated by People’s Climate Movement NY – a coalition of climate, environmental, labor, student, faith , community and social and racial justice organizations in NYC.
