SF Bay Area: From Lima to Paris, The Road To Climate Justice In 2015
Teach-in & Fundraiser for the People's Climate Summit in Lima Peru and the Caravana Climatica.
Corporations and the wealthy elite are destroying our climate, our wild places and our communities for short term profit.
The United Nations' climate talks are convening in Lima, Peru from Dec. 1-12 yet again to trade away a just and stable climate to corporations and wealthy nations.
Social movements throughout Latin America have mobilized to be heard inside and outside the Lima meetings at the People's Climate Summit. Caravana Climatica, organized by Marea Creciante (Rising Tide Mexico) has traveled through Mexico, Central America and South America building solidarity amongst communities facing devastation at the point of destruction.
In Dec 2015, the United Nations will convene again in Paris, France to make decisions about our climate future. Between now and then, frontline communities and movements for climate justice and action will be mobilizing for the fight against climate change. It's time to mobilize locally against fossil fuel infrastructure and Bay Area based corporations profiting from climate change.
Join us as we discuss mobilizing events in Lima, Paris and in the Bay Area.
