***THE BIG ONE*** - Greenpeace and Mobilization for Climate Justice: Culminating Bay Area Event
Monday, 24 October, 2011 - 15:00
Greenpeace joins with 350.org, the Mobilization for Climate Justice, Global Exchange and a variety or other Bay Area organizations to throw a massive event calling on our leaders to join the global community of countries that are committing to strong action on global warming.
On Saturday October 24th, citizens from the Bay Area will join thousands around the world in calling for real science-based global warming solutions at the UN Copenhagen climate talks.
Starting at 3:00pm on October 24th, we will gather at the Justin Herman Plaza/SF Ferry Bldg. (Embarcadero BART), near foot of Market St., San Francisco. The event will be a culmination for multiple morning events and will include a massive group photo at 3:50pm. There will be a program including climate activists and local poets and performers. The aerial photo will include a massive parachute banner and hundreds of homemade, hand-painted visuals. The message will be calling on Obama for 350 and climate justice.
Joining us will be a dozen of bikers finishing a 350 mile bike ride from Northern California, hundreds of folks finishing a bike ride through the city, a crew of students who hiked Mt. Diablo that morning and dozens of people doing 350 Art events at their local BART stations that morning.
Contact Lauren Thorpe to get involved: Lauren.Thorpe@greenpeace.org.
We are having weekly meetings to hammer out the details of the action. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in joining.
