Extinction Rebellion - Climate Justice Now!
Several hundreds people gathered at San Francisco's Civic Center on October 16, 2019 for a solemn procession punctuated by die-ins, as part of a day of Climate Justice protests.
The action, organized by Bay Area Extinction Rebellion, included people from Red Rebels, Decolonization, Playful Animal Parade, Mindful Direct Action, the Climate Anxiety Tent, DAWG, and WICCA (Witches Invoking Creative Climate Action - our Bay Area Pagan Cluster!).
The Bay Area protest was part of an international wave of protests by XR and other groups demanding Climate Justice Now.
The SF actions focused attention on California government and Governor Newsom, and demanded that the state:
- Declare a climate emergency
- Commit to fossil-free California by 2025
- Empower communities through citizen’s assemblies
- Work for a just transition
