MARCH

 

RISE FOR CLIMATE,

JOBS AND JUSTICE

 

 

DATE:  September 8th

LOCATION:  San Francisco

 

On September 8th, we’re joining the Peoples Climate Movement and partners from around the world, in bringing tens of thousands of people from across the country into the streets to show our elected leaders that we demand action on climate change.  

 

Eight weeks later, millions more will take those demands to the polls, making Climate, Jobs, and Justice deciding issues in the mid-term elections and beyond.

Will you join us?

 

In the past year Trump has launched unprecedented attacks on our environment, the clean power plan, and the EPA. His administration has deregulated protections for our precious natural resources and trampled on the rights of frontline communities hardest hit by climate change. The good news? Now more than ever, people are ready to take action, hit the streets, and fight back.

 

With the 2018 midterm elections fast approaching, now is the time to engage and mobilize our communities for climate, jobs, and justice.

 

Throughout 2018, using the Global Climate Action Summit and the 2018 mid-term elections as motivating moments, the Peoples Climate Movement will execute a comprehensive organizing, mobilizing, and movement-building program.

 

After launching this spring and escalating throughout the summer, our 2018 plans will manifest on September 8th in hundreds of climate action events across the country with tens of thousands of engaged climate-minded people taking to the streets.

 

Then, even more civically-engaged Americans will demand climate action at the ballot box for the mid-term elections.

 

Pledge to join tens of thousands of people taking action to demand bold climate action on September 8th, and beyond.

 

We will be calling for a transition to a new 100% clean and renewable energy future that creates millions of family sustaining jobs, and ensures that racial and economic justice are core to action on climate in every community.

 

Our communities, our planet, and our future depend on a climate movement that reaches all corners of this country. To change everything, it takes everyone — and with your help we can build a sustainable world for generations to come.

 

Join us, spread the word, and pledge to take action on September 8th and beyond.

 

In Solidarity,

March for

Nuclear Abolition & Global Survival

 

August 6, 2018

Livermore Lab, 8 AM on

 

Mark your calendar today for this major Rally, March and Nonviolent Direct Action on Monday, August 6th.  Join us to commemorate the U.S. atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan at the site where new nuclear weapons are being developed for use today.

 

We will gather at Livermore Lab to stop the creation of novel, “more usable” nuclear warheads that the Trump Administration proposed in its Nuclear Posture Review and fiscal 2019 budget, both released earlier this year. We will join millions of peace advocates around the country and the world on this memorable day to say “never again” to the use of nuclear weapons – and to call for their global abolition.

 

The rally’s keynote speaker will be Daniel Ellsberg, perhaps best known as the whistleblower who released “The Pentagon Papers” to hasten an end to the war in Vietnam. He has been an analyst at RAND Corp. and a consultant to the Defense Dept., specializing in problems of command and control of nuclear weapons, war plans and crisis decision-making. Ellsberg recently released his critically acclaimed memoirs, The Doomsday Machine: Confessions of a Nuclear War Planner.

 

Rev. Nobuaki Hanaoka will be a guest speaker. He was an infant when the atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki on August 9, 1945. His mother and sister died from illnesses linked to radiation poisoning and his brother died at age 39 from premature aging associated with fallout from the bomb. Hanaoka is a retired minister in the United Methodist church, who came to the U.S. following seminary training in Japan. He has settled in the Bay Area where he speaks, writes and teaches on topics of peace and human rights.

 

Prof. Christine Hong will also be featured. She is an assistant professor at UC Santa Cruz specializing in transnational Asian American, Korean diaspora, and critical Pacific Rim studies. Hong is co-editor of the Critical Asian Studies special edition on North Korean Human Rights.  She is a member of the National Campaign to End the Korean War, the Alliance of Scholars Concerned about Korea, and the Working Group on Peace and Demilitarization in Asia and the Pacific.
