Please join us at the Climate Convergence for People, Planet and Peace over Profit, Sept. 19-21.
This video marked the launch of the Convergence with the Earth Day to May Day actions of last spring. We are now mobilizing in the same spirit for the NYC Climate Convergence, Sept. 19-21. Enjoy this original call to action, and stay tuned for a new video later this month.
The schedule of events for the NYC Climate Convergence happening September 19 – 21, 2014 is now available!
Ahead of the 2014 United Nations Climate Summit, which trumpets itself as an event to “catalyze ambitious action,” grassroots organizations from around the world are warning that the global gathering, in fact, has been hijacked by corporations that are pursuing “false promises” and “exploiting the tragedy of climate change.”

The recent report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the most worrisome so far. Paired with data from the 2014 National Climate Assessment, there is no question that the climate crisis is here and is accelerating at a faster pace than predicted. Its effects are widespread and dangerous, yet real solutions are being suppressed.
The Opening Plenary for the NYC Climate Convergence happening on September 19, 2014 has been finalized!
The official route for the People’s Climate March happening September 21, 2014 in New York City has been finalized.
The climate change march in New York on Sept. 21, expected to draw as many as 200,000 people, is one of the last gasps of conventional liberalism’s response to the climate crisis. It will take place two days before the actual gathering of world leaders in New York called by U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to discuss the November 2015 U.N. Climate Conference in Paris. The marchers will dutifully follow the route laid down by the New York City police….
SAN JOSE, CA — An unusually broad cross-section of organizations is calling for the largest climate march in history in New York City this September 21. Their plan is to challenge Ban Ki-moon’s special climate summit at the United Nations to take meaningful action in the wake of its notorious 2009 failure in Copenhagen. “This is an invitation to change everything,” said the organizers, who include unions, environmentalists, and diverse social justice groups.
