LOCAL CITIZENS TO ATTEND NYC CLIMATE MARCH ON SEPTEMBER 21

A group of local citizens planning to participate in the People’s Climate March on Sunday, September 21 in New York City have organized a bus to the event and invite interested Central New Yorkers to join them!

The People’s Climate March is a response to the UN Climate Summit called by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to “urge governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution.”

As world leaders are arriving in NYC, and with the whole world watching, the largest Climate March in history will peacefully deliver the message that people all over the world want bold action taken to address the climate crisis.

The Utica charter coach bus will be leaving from two area boarding locations on the morning of September 21 and will return that evening.

Information and details about the People’s Climate March can be found at http://peoplesclimate.org.

Tickets are: $40 adults; $20 for students (18 or older, or younger when accompanied by a parent) and for persons of limited income (limited number available).
