The People's Climate March is Saturday, April 29 in Washington D.C.

Ignore my earlier posts from Tuesday and Wednesday of this week pushing for a massive Earth Day demonstration on April 22. The Sierra Club and other environmental organizations were way ahead of me, planning a People's Climate March for D.C. on the following weekend, April 29. When I asked, my local chapter of the Sierra Club responded that one reason they didn't choose Earth Day was because they knew of many other local environmental events scheduled for April 22 every year, events that they did not want to distract from or compete with. Also, April 29th is the day before Donald Trump's 100th day in office, a traditionally significant milestone in any president's first term.

So, please bookmark the People's Climate Movement homepage for updates. If Donald Trump hasn't cooked up his Reichstag Fire to suspend civil liberties before then, April 29th in D.C. should be at least as big as the Women's March. See you there.
