We had a strong peace turnout at the NYC Climate March yesterday. World BEYOND War, CodePink, Veterans For Peace, War Resistors League, New Haven Peace Council, Massachusetts Peace Action, Peace Action New York State, Brooklyn for Peace, and others marched from 55th St. and Broadway to 1st Avenue and 51st St.
At end of march, the crowd filled 1st Ave from 51st st. to 56th. Organizers estimate 75,000 people of all ages marched with an urgent message for President Biden: “Declare a Climate Emergency Now!” Of course, that requires an end to U.S. endless, disastrous, and destructive military exploits around the world.
Peace activists will assemble again in NYC on Thursday, 9/21 for the International Day of Peace to demand the U.S. move onto the only sustainable path forward…PEACE.
