It’s a double-whammy! One! Two! The day right after the NYC People’s Climate March, there will be a massive sit-in on Wall Street on Monday, Sept. 22.
Flood Wall Street: A Massive Sit-In
September 22nd – Flood, blockade, sit-in, and shut down the institutions that are profiting from the climate crisis. Wear Blue.
On Monday, September 22nd at 9:00 am, thousands of people will gather at Battery Park in Lower Manhattan to confront the root cause of the climate crisis – an economic system based on exploiting frontline communities, workers and natural resources. On the heels of the largest-ever march on climate change, we have an opportunity to transform the economic system driving this crisis.
Wearing blue to represent the sea that surrounds us, we rise to the steps of the NY Stock Exchange at 12:00 pm, flooding the area with our bodies in a massive sit-in – a collective act of nonviolent civil disobedience – to confront the system that both causes and profits from the crisis that is threatening humanity.
There is no time to waste – Wall Street must be transformed. Through the power of people taking collective action we will build an economy based on justice and sustainability and stop the climate crisis.
