People’s Climate March 2017 Lake Merritt

After more than 400,000 people took to the streets in New York City three years ago, the Peoples Climate March is returning on April 29 in Washington, DC. and sister marches across the country in cities such as Los Angeles,  Oakland, Houston, New York, Cincinnati and around the world in cities ranging from São Paulo, Brazil, to Kilifi, Kenya. More than 800 organizations have endorsed this year’s March for Climate, Jobs, and Justice. Organizers, 350.org and partners, will  come together with hundreds of thousands of people to reject Trump’s attack on communities and climate, and push forward with a vision of a clean energy economy that works for all.

Bill Mckibben, founder 350, writes:”It is hard to avoid hyperbole when you talk about global warming. It is, after all, the biggest 
thing humans have ever done, and by a very large margin. In the past year, we’ve decimated the Great Barrier Reef, which is the largest living structure on Earth. In the drought-stricken territories around the Sahara, we’ve helped kick off what The New York Times called “one of the biggest humanitarian disasters since World War II.” We’ve melted ice at the poles at a record pace, because our emissions trap extra heat from the sun that’s equivalent to 400,000 Hiroshima-size explosions a day. Which is why, just maybe, you should come to Washington, DC, on April 29 for a series of big climate protests that will mark the 100th day of Trumptime. Maybe the biggest thing ever is worth a day.”

The People’s Climate Mobilization is part of a larger 350 strategy to push back on Trump’s agenda of climate denial, fossil fuel expansion and a GOP-controlled Congress filled with lawmakers who deny climate change exists as each year sets global-temperature records. That’s why 350 is calling this the People’s Climate Mobilization instead of a just a March. “We see April 29th as the culmination of our work to fight Trump during the first 100 days of his administration and the launch pad for a larger, nationwide movement to fight fossil fuels at the local level by resisting fossil fuel infrastructure projects and promoting clean energy solutions in everyone’s own cities, towns, and states.  That’s our best chance of continuing to keep playing offense, even as we defend everything this administration wants to take away. But we’ll need your energy, creativity, and leadership right where you live too.”

 350 Bay Area campaigns for local climate action:

Join CodePink, friends and allies from around the Bay Area on April 29th at the Lake Merritt Amphitheater in Oakland, as we gather, march and rally as part of the nationwide People’s Climate Mobilization planned for that day. The event starts at noon, and will last for much of the afternoon.  We can not allow the Trump administration to threaten the future of the planet by denying climate change as it choose brown energy, oil and coal, over green energy and the future.
