For Immediate Release
Massive Direct Action After the People's Climate March
NEW YORK, NY - On Monday, September 22nd at 9:00 am, thousand of people will gather at Battery Park in Lower Manhattan to confront the root cause of the climate crisis - an economic system based on exploiting frontline communities, workers, and natural resources. On the heels of the largest-ever march on climate change, we have an opportunity to transform the economic system driving climate change.
Wearing blue to represent the sea that surrounds us, we rise to the steps of the NY Stock Exchange at 12:00 pm, flooding the area with our bodies in a massive sit-in - a collective act of nonviolent civil disobedience to confront the system that both causes, and profits from the crisis that is threatening humanity.
There is no time to waste - Wall Street must be transformed. Through the power of people taking collective action we will build an economy based on justice and sustainability, and stop the climate crisis.
- 9 AM - Gather @ Battery Park - Breakfast and Music from Rude Mechanical Orchestra
- 9:30 AM - Speakers - including frontline community leaders of the Climate Justice Alliance, Naomi Klein, Rebecca Solnit and Chris Hedges
- 11 AM -- Nonviolent Direct Action Training & March
