Planning for Paris--2015    solutions_cop21-2.jpg

Join the Northern Cal. Climate Action Coalition

 Join us to plan and network among Climate Justice groups for actions leading up to the Paris COP21* UN climate talks.

 Thursday, July 9, 2015

7 pm – 9 pm

 at California Nurses Association,
2000 Franklin St., Oakland

at 20th St, 1 block from 19th St BART

Please join us for this second planning meeting aimed to coordinate various actions leading up to and through the scheduled Paris UN COP21 climate meeting (Nov 30 – Dec 11) and promote a collective ownership of proposed mass actions.  We are activists from various groups who organized the Northern California People's Climate Rally in Oakland on September 21, 2014, in solidarity with the People's Climate March in New York on the same date.  Since the first meeting a number of us have drafted points of unity for our coalition--please see reverse side.  And please reach out to your networks and invite other groups to this meeting to help build for climate action.


*COP21 is the 21st "Conference of the Parties" held by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.  The conference objective is to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate, from all the nations of the world.


Draft points of unity:

Challenging climate catastrophe

the Northern California Climate Action Coalition demands

A global agreement to implement

 dramatic and rapid reduction in

global warming pollution

 Keep fossil fuels in the ground!

100% clean, safe, renewable energy!

End all fracking, tar sands mining and pipelines, offshore drilling, arctic drilling.

Wind, solar, geothermal power now.

No coal exports or bomb trains in Northern California.

These are pre-conditions necessary to create:

  •  A world united to repair the ravages of climate change
    Industrial countries and polluting corporations of the global north need to pay their ecological debt to society and to the global south by providing funding for developing countries and vulnerable communities worldwide to adapt to the impacts of climate change and convert to sustainable economies. 
  • A world with an economy that works for people and the planet
    Billions of dollars for conservation and a just transition to a sustainable economy based on renewable energy, clean transportation, and jobs for all at union wages. Convert polluting factory farms to sustainable organic agriculture. End corporate personhood; end "money equals free speech"; end billionaire purchase of elections.

  • A demilitarized world with peace and social justice for everyone; where Black Lives Matter; where good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities belong to all
    End all forms of oppression and discrimination. No to environmental racism and pollution of indigenous, low income, and frontline nations and communities. No wars. No nuclear weapons. No more Fukushimas. A true ecological approach must integrate questions of justice to honor the earth and lift all people out of poverty.
