NYC: It’s time to #TellTheTruth and declare a climate emergency!

Join us at City Hall in support of a City Council Resolution declaring a climate emergency in NYC. This resolution is a vital first step toward confronting the hard truth of the climate crisis and speeding up New York City’s transition to an equitable, renewable economy. We can’t solve the problem if we don’t call it like it is: a life or death emergency of unprecedented proportions.

We will rally outside at 12:00 pm and then at 1:00 pm, the City Council will be hold a hearing on the resolution.

JOIN US and bring a friend.

62 Rebels arrested in NYC demanding CLimate Emergency Declaration at NYC City Hall

Thank you to all the Rebels who came out to demand the NYC government declare a Climate Emergency. We are making history with people all around the world as we take action in the face of climate change. We have more events planned for this week, so come and take part in the Rebellion! Go to facebook for more pictures.

In NYC on Wednesday April 17th, hundreds rallied at City Hall, took part in Citizen Assemblies, and wrote their messages on the sidewalk to the NYC government. 60 Climate Rebels took over the roadway of the Brooklyn Bridge, shutting it down for over 45 minutes, as 2 Rebels scaled the traffic lights and hung a banner to demand NYC declare a Climate Emergency. All 62 were arrested and have been released with court dates set for June.
