People’s Climate March: TPP Street Theater

TPP OPPOSITION STREET THEATER

Uncle Pennybags (Monopoly man) will be giving a press conference at the Federal Building to introduce the newest of his pet free-trade attack dogs. His latest pet, TPP, will be appearing beside his familiar pet NAFTA, and the equally notorious pet WTO. Journalists will be asking tough questions. See what unfolds!

At 5:00 PM, the entire press conference, including journalists, picketers and representatives from clean energy will march to City Hall Plaza, protesting the TPP.

TPP Opposition Street Theater then joins The People’s Climate March, and together we will begin marching to Occidental Park for the main event.

PEOPLE’S CLIMATE MARCH 2015

Local Action for Global Climate Justice

October 14 5PM Meet at City Hall Plaza, 600 4th Ave, Seattle, Washington 98104; March at 5:30PM to Occidental Park, 117 S Washington St, Seattle, WA 98104

The time for action on climate change is NOW. Join a diverse coalition of communities of color, workers, immigrants, activists and everyday folk on October 14 as we build upon last year’s wildly successful People’s Climate March in New York to send a message that will be heard from Seattle to Paris: Our communities are united in the fight against climate change. Climate change affects low-income and communities of color disproportionately, and a just transition away from fossil fuels means making sure that no one gets left behind, especially the communities most affected.

Naomi Klein will join speakers from all walks of life. We’ll gather at 5:00PM at City Hall Plaza to make climate ribbons, and then march at 5:30PM sharp to Occidental Park, where we’ll have speakers and video projections of people from across the state, talking about how climate change is affecting our lives, what we’re doing about it, and what our hopes for the future are. We’ll also have an interview tent set up to record the stories of those present. Our world is changing faster than anyone expected, and our voices must be heard in Paris and beyond. Please join us!
