FINAL RSVPs: DSA at the People's Climate March

We're counting down to the People's Climate March!

Please confirm whether you will march with DSA, meeting no later than 10am on Central Park West between 79th and 80th Streets.

DSAers are gathering in the "We Know Who Is Responsible" section of the march, along with other socialist organizations as well as anti-corporate, peace and justice, and other radical groups.

Why should you march with DSA rather than just going as an individual?

Because you know who is responsible and we need a large group so that our anti-capitalist critique is loud and clear!

We will bring signs with our anti-capitalist climate change slogans for you IF you confirm, once again, that you will march with DSA (RSVP BELOW). We don't want to waste resources making unneeded signs, so please don't RSVP unless you definitely plan to show up no later than 10am between 79th and 80th on Central Park West.

Note: The police will close admission to each block on Central Park West once they deem it “full.” If the police won’t let you on that block you will be told to move north to an open block on Central Park West. Once you are on Central Park West you may be able to move south and find us, but given the expected size of the march that will be very difficult to do. So if we are to have a good sized group we need everybody to arrive on time!

Subways: note that Museum of Natural History takes up all blocks between 77th and 81st, Columbus Ave to Central Park West. There is a Museum Subway stop on the B and C trains, 81st Street, and also an exit on 79th St. at the museum. The exit to the street here is called "77th St" but it is actually at 79th St. You emerge either on 78th or 80th St. when you go up the ramp, so just look for street signs when you exit.

The People's Climate March route is about 2 miles long and ends up on 11th Avenue.

What to bring:

Please bring your camera and take photos of us marching and tweet or post to your Facebook page about the march. Remember to mention you are with DSA.

Finally, there are still some out-of-town DSAers in need of housing. If you can provide a bed, a couch or even floor space for a marcher, and have not responded to a previous email on housing please email Alex Caring-Lobel (helloalexcl (at) gmail.com).

If you have questions you can call Frank Llewellyn (718-522-2269).
