#21- People’s Climate March in NYC

BirdAvatar Hi all- PQ Bird here. Sorry to interrupt the vacation posts, but I have an important entry to add. As many of you may know I am very concerned about climate change- I will be discussing issues related to that in future posts.

Today I went to the big “People’s” Climate March in New York City. The march was to bring attention to the dramatic changes in the earth’s weather due mostly to the impact of fossil fuels; People came from all over the world to participate in the march.

The march was organized into groups, with those most affected by global warming in the front- indigenous people. This was followed by labor groups, student groups, environmental groups, peace and justice groups and then everyone else. We formed our own small animal contingent and took our place somewhere in the middle- though in truth we should have been in the front, since we are more affected by environmental changes than anyone.

On Tuesday September 23 the UN will host a climate summit at the United Nations building in New York. Let’s hope they heard our message. In the meantime, regular people and animals can attend one of these climate informational events on Tuesday September 23: http://www.ourpowercampaign.org/peoples-climate-justice-summit/.
