On September 21, people in villages, towns, and cities around the world will come together in a call for action on climate change. In New York alone, over 750 organizations and tens of thousands of people are gathering for a rally and march as the United Nations convenes to address climate change policy. On the same day Seattle will join them.
From http://peoplesclimate.org/march/: World leaders are coming to New York City for a UN summit on the climate crisis. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution.
With our future on the line and the whole world watching, we’ll take a stand to bend the course of history. We’ll take to the streets to demand the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities.
The Seattle rally will be at Westlake Plaza, downtown, Sunday, September 21, starting at 12:00. There will be a march to a nearby location that is TBD. Organizations are encouraged to represent their own contingent with banners and individuals can bring their own signs.

There will be tables with information and speakers who will focus the event. This is a great opportunity for everyone including those who want to make it clear that dietary choices must be part of the solution and included in the environmentalist response to climate change.
