Thurs 9/6 at 5:30 pm: New York Rise for Climate, Jobs, Justice, and Peace!

The weekend before the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco, the Peoples Climate Movement will lead a nation-wide mobilization: Rise for Climate, Jobs, and Justice. The first action will be on Thursday, September 6th, as New Yorkers gather in lower Manhattan (Battery Park) at 5:30 pm demanding immediate action from Governor Andrew Cuomo, Mayor Bill de Blasio, and all elected officials.
BFP will be there to share our message: Climate change causes war, and war causes climate change!

March for our demands that city, state, and federal officials act now to:
**Plan urgently for just transition to 100% renewable energy
**Halt all fossil fuel infrastructure
**Make corporate polluters pay
**End war: War leads to climate change, and climate change leads to war!

Take Action for Yemen!

The assault on the Yemen port city Hodeida, led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates with backing from the U.S., began over a week ago and is currently underway. Check out this recent report on Democracy Now.

Please sign this petition which urges Congressional reps to use all available means including invoking the War Powers Act to end the unconstitutional U.S. participation in the catastrophic Saudi-UAE assault on Hodeida. Brooklyn Reps Clarke and Velazquez were among the 34 signers of a letter to this effect. While thanking them, we need to urge them to follow through. The other Brooklyn reps (Jeffries, Maloney, Nadler, and Donovan) have not signed. If you’re in their districts, ask them why not?
