Shield The People Climate March

Date: 
Sun, 09/21/2014 - 11:00am to 3:00pm

Austin Texas stands with the People’s Climate March in NYC, in calling for accountability from our public leaders to support climate justice.  Those least responsible for climate change are those most likely affected by it. The advancement of a global environmental justice movement is rooted in action, not words – and is rooted in land, not ideas.  Texas stands in solidarity with the global majority who suffer the theft of their land, the extraction of natural resources, the pollution of land and water and the drought brought on by climate change.  This is our environment.
