A Global Day of Action to Move Beyond Fossil Fuels

September 24, 2011
New York City, New York

Time: Rides/marches begin at noon, rally at 2:00 pm.
Location: Dag Hammarskjold Plaza

Citywide community rides/marches converging at UN Rally. PSR New York City is a co-sponsor.

Moving Planet is a worldwide rally to move beyond fossil fuels. All over the world, people will take to the streets on bicycles, roller skates, skateboards, on foot and on any other sustainable form of transit they can dream up. We will demonstrate to our governments that a global consensus has formed: we are ready for a world after fossil fuels.

In New York City, we're organizing dozens of community marches and bike rides all over the five boroughs. You can find a march or ride in your neighborhood or create a new one!

These marches begin from noon on and will converge on a 2PM rally at the United Nations' Dag Hammarskjold Plaza on 47th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenues in Manhattan.

The UN General Assembly will be in session at that time debating important resolutions just 2 months before the UN climate summit in Durban and in the critical run-up to Rio +20. This is a great opportunity to demonstrate the strength of our movement to both US and world leaders, and to demand real climate solutions!

Come by Merchant's Gate from 11-12 where The New York Society for Ethical Culture will be tabling their petition demanding more media coverage about climate change. Then join a walk, ride or pedicab going from there to the UN rally.

  • Fracking: Harm on the Farm

    Chemical exposures that harm farm animals and wild animals raise concern about health risks for people living near fracking sites, as the animals use the same water and breathe the same air as humans. Another, indirect concern for human health also exists: in multiple known cases of chemical exposure, cows continued to produce dairy and meat for human consumption, although it remained untested for chemical contaminants.
