What are you planning to do on Saturday November 28th? Got any plans?
You could be part of the global People’s Climate March. In over 160 cities around the world (London, Hong Kong, New York, Sydney to name a few), people will be marching to demand that their governments work to find solutions to the challenges posed by climate change. People, organisations and companies are working to find solutions – now we want our governments to take action to reduce carbon emissions. As world leaders gather in Paris for the climate summit we’re sending a clear message that we need more action.
This is your chance to be part of a global phenomenon and the largest climate march in New Zealand history, and in the world.
Events will take place in Auckland, Hamilton, Christchurch, Wellington, Dunedin, Nelson, Wairarapa, Napier/Hastings, Invercargill, Rotorua, Marlborough, Ashburton, Whanganui. You can find full details at peoplesclimatemarch.org.nz. All marches will be family-friendly opportunities for anybody who cares about our planet to march with like-minded folks.
Coal Action Network has been busy working with organisations, including Caritas, the World Wildlife Fund, First Union, 350 Aotearoa, Action Station, Greenpeace, Unite, Generation Zero, the PSA, the Maritime Workers Union, the P3 Foundation, Forest and Bird, the World Wildlife Fund and Oxfam New Zealand to make this happen; Harvey is part of the Wellington organising group and Jeanette is representing CANA on the Auckland committee.
There are many more groups than the ones listed who will take part.
We’re looking for individuals who care to come and take part. If you are in Auckland, look for the black and orange CANA banner and march with us.
Sir Geoffrey Palmer said recently, “Never think that democracy doesn’t work. It does. But the citizens have to made a lot of noise!
Please come. Bring home made signs and banners and your whole family. Make your voice heard.
As Naomi Klein said in This Changes Everything, “to Change Everything, we Need Everyone”.
