Green Party members and candidates from across the United States and Canada joined a large Green contingent in the People’s Climate March in New York City on September 21st.
Before the march began, volunteers in Howie Hawkins for NY Governor t-shirts worked the massive crowd, while past and present Green candidates including Jill Stein, Cheri Honkala, Elizabeth May (Canadian Green MP), Howie Hawkins, Brian Jones (Hawkins’ running mate), and Eugene Puryear (for DC City Council) fired up marchers at an impromptu rally.
Over 150 Greens marched with Hawkins, Jones, and Ramon Jimenez (for NY Attorney General), chanting “We are unstoppable – a Green world is possible”, “We’re gonna beat back the frack attack”, “No more poison and pollution – we need a solar revolution”, and more, drawing cheers from the assembled crowd.
On the following day, Greens including Howie Hawkins joined the Flood Wall Street sit-in to protest the financial corporations that are funding the dirty energy behind climate change.
