Listen to NYC Climate Convergence Organizers Natalie McClellan and Peter Rugh talk about the upcoming event September 19 – 21 along with some great information about climate in the media, earthquakes and more with Ken Gale!
In his June article in Rolling Stone calling on people to participate in the Climate March, 350.org leader Bill McKibben notably calls for “changing the system that’s powering our destruction”. But the “system” he’s talking about changing is not capitalism itself. As important as the march will be, it will not provide a space for the articulation of radical, anti-capitalist perspectives on the environmental crisis. To complement the march and provide such a space, System Change not Climate Change and the Global Climate Convergence coalition are partnering to organize the NYC Climate Convergence: People, Planet, and Peace over Profit, to take place on the evening of Friday, September 19 and all day Saturday, September 20.
