CNV organizing nationwide actions — and joining climate march

Posted by Ken Butigan

This fall Campaign Nonviolence will take nonviolent action in hundreds of cities September 21-27 calling for an end to war, poverty and the climate crisis.  See the list of 224 local Campaign Nonviolence actions – marches, rallies, vigils, nonviolent direct action or other forms of public witness – here!

Campaign Nonviolence is also a participating organization of the People’s Climate March that will take place in New York September 21 on the eve of the UN Summit on Climate Change.  CNV’s nationwide actions will reinforce this massive march’s message and underscore the connections between the climate crisis, war and poverty. For those who can do so, especially on the East Coast, we encourage you to organize a local CNV action and also participate in the New York march.

See the Campaign Nonviolence listing on the People’s Climate March website here!

The march is supposed to start at 11:30 a.m. at Columbus Circle in NYC but they will close off Central Park West, and there will be four rallies spaced out along Central Park West. Our peace rally will be at 77th Street on Central Park West, and start at 10 a.m., and perhaps go to noon.  Take the 1 train to 79th St.  More info here
 
John Dear will speak along with Bill McKibben, Medea Benjamin, Tom Hayden, Jim Hightower and others, and singers include Dar Williams, Holly Near and Emma’s Revolution. Please help spread the word, get your peace groups to promote it, come to our rally, and say hello.  See you there!
