BACKGROUND + PARTNERS
Governor Jerry Brown is convening the Global Climate Action Summit (GCAS) in San Francisco to promote his “real climate leadership” credentials on a global stage. But Jerry Brown’s expansion of dirty fossil fuel production, support of carbon trading markets and other incentives to oil, as well as gas and other polluting corporations, perpetuates climate change and decimates Indigenous communities and Native nations, communities of color and other working class peoples throughout California and around the world.
Such perverse subsidies for “climate capitalism” (allowing polluters to continue profiting on the creation of their pollution) will turn frontline communities into sacrifice zones for decades to come. Despite Brown’s efforts to show he is different from Trump and the forces of climate denial, his “climate leadership” promotes a similar corporate agenda – aimed at expanding the dig, burn, drive, dump industries, and the banks and tanks economy destroying our communities and the air, land and water we depend on.
Join us to stand in solidarity with Indigenous and frontline communities protecting Mother Earth, and cultivating real solutions to the twin crises of climate change and capitalism. Join us to demand that elected leaders like Governor Brown stand with our communities on the streets, and not the climate profiteers gathered inside.
For the sake of the climate, and to protect our communities, it’s time we collectively come together to say, “Enough!” It’s time to escalate this critical fight by taking direct action to make sure Governor Brown and other leaders get the message!
On September 13th, join us in mass action at the Global Climate Action Summit.
Our actions will be wrapped in prayer and committed with love for all we hold dear. We call for all peoples around the world to join us on the streets of San Francisco as we tell Jerry Brown and his friends that “real climate leaders” stand with people, not the pollution profiteers.
