Meet Ayya Anandabodhi and others of the Aloka Vihara Community at the Lake Merritt Park Amphitheater in Oakland, where we will join our energy and voices to the Northern California People’s Climate Rally in solidarity with the historic People’s Climate March taking place on the same day in New York City.
Bill McKibben speaks about the march on Democracy Now.
Watch this excellent film on the march by Kelly Nyks & Jared P Scott:
Disruption: Climate Change (52:27)
Let’s meet up at 12th Street and Lake Merritt Blvd. at 2 pm on Sunday, September 21st and go together to the Rally, which is just across the street. The Lake Merritt BART station is just a few blocks away.
The Rally is from 2 pm to 5 pm at the Lake Merritt Park Amphitheater. It’s a family friendly event, with a “Climate Fair” featuring information from the sponsoring organizations, inspirational speakers, and entertainment.
Among the sponsoring organizations are 350BayArea, Communities for a Better Environment, Sierra Club Bay Area, System Change Not Climate Change, and Sunflower Alliance.
Afterwards, we can join together for the 3rd Sunday Sangha tea and teachings at Berkeley Buddhist Monastery with Ayya Anandabodhi.
