September 23, 2019

shut down DC

Youth leaders from around the world have called for a climate strike and global week of action from September 20th-27th. They have been taking the lead so far, but now they are calling on all of us to take action. In Washington, DC we will be answering the call and building on the momentum of the youth climate strikes in a major way. 

On September 23rd, we are going to shut down DC.

We will block key infrastructure to stop business-as-usual, bringing the whole city to a gridlocked standstill. Parents, workers, college students, and everyone who is concerned about the climate crisis will skip work and school and put off their other responsibilities to take action on the climate crisis. But we must be clear: MPP is not here to save capitalism, we are here to save the planet from the capitalists. Working class people are facing disruptions and inconvenience every single day. What will be different on September 23rd is that the disruption will be focused on the people in power. 

Find out more and RSVP here with the Movement for a People’s Party affinity group.
