On Sunday, September 17, 75,000 people marched across New York City to End Fossil Fuels. Two Green Party candidates seeking the nomination for President of the U.S. were in New York marching as VIP’s, and I was lucky enough to have my photo taken next to them.
The Green Party, which first began calling in 2010, is heartened to see such widespread support for a Green New Deal (GND) among the estimated 75,000 people who marched on Sunday to demand faster climate action from President Biden. For Greens the most important response to global warming would be the rapid and full halt to fossil fuel emissions and welcomed the call by more than 600 groups to demand much swifter action against the use of fossil fuels from The Biden administration.
Momentum is building for Sunday's September 17 End Fossil Fuel march and rally in NYC which starts at 1 PM at 56th and Broadway.
The Green Party contingent will meet at 12:15 PM at W. 57th and 8th Ave. At 12:45 PM we will move over to W. 57th and Broadway. Individuals marching with the Green Party can RSVP at https://bit.ly/GPEndFossilFuels. Organizers say the best way to get there is to take the subway to Columbus Circle and then walk south.

At least a dozen climate protestors were arrested on Thursday morning after hundreds of activists shut down the headquarters of Citibank, which has provided $333 billion in funding to fossil fuel projects since the Paris climate agreement took effect. We start off with several minutes of the sounds from the protests, followed by comments by protestors Ted Glick, Laura Wolfson, Eco of the Green Worker Alliance, and an activist who traveled to Phoenix for the protest.

The Green Party of the United States has endorsed the Sept. 17th March in NYC to End Fossil Fuels. More than 500 groups are sponsoring the climate protest which is expected to be the largest in the U.S. since COVID. Green Party members from throughout the east coast will march together at the event.
The Green Party of the US is deeply saddened by the devastating wildfires that have ravaged Maui. We extend our condolences to our friends and the families of those who have lost loved ones, and we offer our support to those who have been displaced from their homes.
