People’s Climate Movement features Week of Action, Climate Marches

Climate change is happening, humans are causing it, and I think this is perhaps the most serious environmental issue facing us. — Bill Nye

This coming Saturday, April 29, marks the pre-culmination of the Week of Action that began last weekend with the March for Science on Earth Day; the Week of Action, sponsored by the People’s Climate Movement (https://peoplesclimate.org)  ends on Monday, May 1.

As a build-up to the Climate March, the Week of Action features a robust agenda of public events of every sort.   Though the Week will no doubt rouse a spate of alternative facts, too, by this time we are immune….

For an overview of the Week of Action, skim this list of activities.  https://rht7i1f3vjk8j0cx49s7yavh-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/PCMwoaEXTENDED.FINAL_.pdf

You’ll find poetry and art, religious services, resistance rallies and a host of study sessions and presentations on science, climate change and the ways individuals and groups are working for positive change.

Saturday, April 29, the nation celebrates the People’s Climate March, described as a “march for climate, jobs and justice.”  (https://peoplesclimate.org)  As one might expect, the epicenter of the March is in Our Nation’s Capital.

Planners have posted a long list of “sister marches” throughout the nation.  The list includes two sister marches in Minnesota.
