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!
