Are you coming to the climate protest event of the year this weekend? Thousands of protest events around the globe mobilising hundreds of thousands of people to coincide with the Peoples Climate March in New York City being held just before a UN climate summit at the United Nations headquarters.

Tony Abbott will be in New York to speak at the United Nations on terrorism, yet will not attend the climate summit hosted by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon which will have at least 125 heads of state attending. Australian Foreign Affairs minister Julie Bishop will be leading the Australian delegation. The summit is designed to build momentum for national and international climate action, including a new global climate treaty that will be finalized in at the UNFCCC talks in Paris at the end of next year.

New York Mobilization organizers say they are looking for “Action, Not Words” at the summit.

“The scale, pace, and power of the organizing happening right now is something that we haven’t seen before,” said May Boeve, executive director of the international climate campaign, 350.org. “People realize that we can’t leave the fate of the planet up to our politicians. We need to come together, raise our voices, and apply pressure where it counts.”

It’s your chance to voice your disapproval of the Abbott Government and their destruction of carbon pricing in Australia, energy efficiency programs and attacks on the Renewable Energy Target, and their continued encouragement and subsidies to mining companies, especially to new coal developments.
