2 Main Actions RE: Global Climate Action Summit ~ Planning meeting ~ Highlights of Sept. 8 ~ Site for Schedule of related events (from Adrienne Fong)

Two main ACTIONS led by INDIGENOUS PEOPLES and COMMUNITIES most impacted by climate change, for this coming week at

the Global Climate Action Summit (GCAS) on Monday, September 10 & Thursday, September 13, in San Francisco, and info on mass action meeting for Tuesday.

This week, Governor Brown is convening the Global Climate Action Summit (GCAS) in SF to promote his “real climate leadership” credentials on a global stage. But Jerry Brown’s promotion of continued fossil fuel production, carbon trading markets and other incentives to oil, 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

People of the world are being led astray by polluting industries and elected officials promoting climate capitalist systems like carbon trading and carbon tax shell games. These systems do nothing to stop the fossil fuel industry from continuing to cause climate disruption. They allow the fossil fuel industry to continue to harm Indigenous people and communities around the world from extraction to transport to refining.

All are welcome to stand in solidarity with frontline communities protecting Mother Earth, and cultivating real solutions to the twin crisis of climate change and capitalism. Joing  us to demand that elected leaders stand with our communities on the streets, and not the climate profiteers gathered inside.

Such perverse subsidies for “climate capitalism” 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.

All are welcome to participate in the civil disobedience action or to come to support the action against Jerry Brown and corporate solutions
