People’s Climate March in Arcata
In solidarity with the Paris Climate Change Conference which is beginning now, about 120 protesters are marching today in Arcata. They are joined by groups of other protesters in cities around the world who are seeking changes in response to the current climate crisis.
Billed as the People’s Global Climate Change March, protesters met at 10 a.m. at Humboldt State University library and are walking to the Plaza where they will gather at noon.
One of the organizers, Jacky Wadham wrote, “For many people the Climate Summit in Paris this year is our last chance to truly combat climate change globally. If we and our leaders decide to ignore the implications of runaway climate, the very existence of our civilization will be threatened.”
