This Saturday—
March With Peace & Justice Groups
At The People’s Climate March!

Apr 24, 2017

Are you heading to Washington this Saturday (April 29th)  for the People’s Climate March?

You can be part of the PEACE HUB—the contingent of peace and justice groups that will rally and march together. They will link the issues of war and climate which they believe are intertwined in a vicious circle that feeds war and attacks on the environment, creating more refugees and destabilizing vast regions of the planet.

The PEACE HUB, part of the People’s Climate March coalition, will rally at 11:00 am at Madison Drive and 3rd Street NW (near the Capitol Reflecting Pool, Map Link: bit.ly/peacehub)

Brooklyn For Peace is sending a bus to the march, along with almost a hundred other buses leaving the NYC area. But if you’re travelling by car or other means, we urge you to join us as part of the PEACE HUB. We’ll be delivering a strong message to Trump on his 100th day in office: STOP THE WARS! SAVE THE PLANET!

See you in Washington.

REMINDER!

The April 29th Climate March in Washington DC is shaping up to be a tremendous protest that will surround the White House with a large and resounding NO! to the Trump Agenda which attacks the environment with horrific cuts to the EPA (the agency that protects our water and air) and vital social program at the same time that it launches new wars and threatens world peace.

The Trump Budget gives the obese Pentagon another $54 billion (on top of an annual U.S. military budget of $640 billion!). It will rob those funds from the most vulnerable Americans by ending the school lunch program, Meals on Wheels and by making drastic cuts to public education, health, mass transit and so on. All these and more are on the chopping block unless We The People keep the pressure on. So don’t stay home on April 29th—join tens of thousands in Washington to deliver a strong message to Trump on the 100th day of his administration.

We hope to see you in Washington on Saturday, April 29th.
Our BFP bus has sold outBut there are still seats available on other Grand Army Plaza buses and elsewhere throughout NYC. Just go to www.bit.ly/429BuyTicket and reserve your seat now!

The March For Climate, Jobs, Justice & Peace in Washington DC on Saturday, April 29th is shaping up as a large and important event. On that day, the 100th day of the Trump extremist administation, tens of thousands will march and surround the White House (a legally permitted and peaceful demonstration) with the demands that he—

  • End his attacks on the environment which imperils life on our planet.
  • Stop his planning and launching of new wars that can lead the world to nuclear destruction.
  • Desist in his attacks and fomenting violence against immigrants, refugees and communities of color.
  • Roll back his plans to curtail women’s rights.
  • Cancel his destructive budget that feeds an obese Pentagon and military establishment while cutting vital social programs

Brooklyn For Peace is a proud part of the People’s Climate March, the coalition that is organizing the April 29th demonstration. We have charted a bus that leaves from Grand Army Plaza. We urge our members, friends and supporters to GET ON THE BUS WITH US!
