On Sunday, September 21st, a huge crowd will march through the middle of Manhattan. It will almost certainly be the largest rally about climate change in history.

More than 1,000 groups are coordinating the march—environmental justice groups, faith groups, socialists, and  labor groups. The march is   designed to serve as a loud and vocal  notice  to the leaders of nations, gathering at the United Nations to discuss global warming, that  yes, they can talk, but it is past time to also act.

The marchers demand substantive policy changes to protect this generation and future generations from destruction and impoverishment due to corporate directed climate change.
