Mainers to march for climate action on April 29th

On Saturday, April 29th, hundreds of thousands of people will converge on Washington, DC for the People’s Climate Movement. Hundreds of thousands more will convene in sister marches across the country, including in Augusta, Maine.

The People’s Climate Mobilization follows in the footsteps of an earlier People’s Climate March, which took place in September of 2014 and had more than 400,000 attendees.

“It really had a transforming effect for a lot of people to feel the power of the climate justice movement,” said Glen Brand, director of Sierra Club’s Maine Chapter. “The point of it all isn’t just to bring people together and call for climate action, but to send a really strong message that the Trump administration is really off-base, and really threatening the progress we made in the Obama administration. We can’t go back on climate—we have to go forward.”

Details of the march in Augusta can be found on their website or Facebook event.
