Thousand Cancuns for Climate Justice!

The climate crisis is escalating, but the United Nations process is failing to address the roots of the problem. Each year we are feeling more impacts of the climate crisis on our communities, cultures and ecosystems –– drought, floods, displacement and the rising cost of food, water and energy. But the U.S. and other wealthy governments are refusing to take responsibility.

Farmers, Indigenous Peoples, landless people, low-income urban communities and thousands of people affected by the destruction of the environment are gathering in Cancun during the UN Climate Conference to show the world that there is another way forward. Responding to La Via Campesina’s call for a thousand Cancuns, social movements from around the world are organizing teach-ins and protests to reject false solutions and to support a people’s agenda for climate justice.

Join us to experience real, community-led solutions in the Bay Area!

Action: Community-based solutions cool the planet!

Action: 3:30pm – 5:30pm
Tuesday, December 7th
17th Street & Folsom
Mission Dist. SF

Frontline communities, the communities first and most impacted by the climate crisis, are addressing the root causes of climate change and leading the way toward a healthy, safe and just future.

Join us to work on a community-led solution here in the Bay Area.

Push for the creation of a public park in the Mission on publicly-owned land currently used as a parking lot. We’ll build a garden, celebrate community-based activism and enjoy speakers, theatre and music! Featuring the headRush crew!
