10 days to change course; putting people, peace and the planet before profits. We’re calling for nothing less than a global, emergency Green New Deal — a solution as big as the crisis we face — and we know it will take a mass uprising to get us there. It is happening all over the country -be part of in right here in NYC with the Green Party.

Kick off the Global Climate Convergence and reclaim Earth Day with a mass rally and march in NYC! Our Labor. Our Earth.
Please click here to RSVP and let us know if you can carry a sign or banner with the Greens!
Join System Change Not Climate Change, Occupy the Pipeline, the Green Party of New York State, and many others as we rise up in resistance against the global assault on our shared economy, ecology, peace, and democracy.
The march’s location is the Financial District. This year, we are reclaiming Earth Day as a day of popular struggle and participation. And we’re directing our ire at Wall Street—the ultimate source of the social, economic, and environmental crisis we’re in. But this will not be a gloomy occasion! We’ll have puppets, a May Pole, lots of revelry, and… plants!
Planet People Peace Over Profit
So please invite friends, coworkers, and comrades on Facebook. And keep up to date with planning for the NYC convergence on our Tumblr: http://convergenyc.tumblr.com/
