On May 21, Rolling Stone Magazine published Bill McKibben’s article, “A Call to Arms: An Invitation to Demand Action on Climate Change“. The article announced a climate march in New York City on September 20 and 21, to coincide with the United Nations Climate Summit. Massachusetts accepts the invitation!
The march in New York City may be the largest action ever to demand a response to the climate crisis. In addition to being large, the march will bring focus to the climate crisis as a global issue that must be addressed in concert by all nations. The march will be especially impactful with the memory of Superstorm Sandy still in our minds and the minds of our hosts in the New York area.
- The U.S. and nations of the world to act in concert and aggressively
- The Commonwealth of Massachusetts to be an example of leadership
- Local and global communities to care for those who suffer the impacts of climate change, including New York City refugees from SuperStorm Sandy who are still in temporary housing and all people impacted by the use of fossil fuels.
There are many details to be worked out, but you can expect a large contingent from Massachusetts to be there. The Massachusetts contingent will join with others from across the nation and around the world. With support from you and others, this will be an event that changes the course of history.
