Voices of the People’s Climate March

Hear from some of the activists who made up the massive crowd at the largest environmental justice demonstration in history. 


Climate change history was made Sunday, September 21, when hundreds of thousands of people marched through the streets of New York to demand climate justice. They were joined by communities the world over, reaching nearly half a million people. The People’s Climate March came right before this week’s UN Climate Summit in New York, where UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon hopes to stoke global leaders’ political will for a meaningful legal agreement in 2015. Sunday’s march set a precedent not only in size, but also in the diversity of groups that participated. The Nation spoke to some of the activists from the climate justice movement, frontline communities, indigenous communities and labor unions who made up Sunday’s massive crowd.

Thank you for reading The Nation

We hope you enjoyed the story you just read, just one of the many incisive, deeply-reported articles we publish daily. Now more than ever, we need fearless journalism that shifts the needle on important issues, uncovers malfeasance and corruption, and uplifts voices and perspectives that often go unheard in mainstream media.

Throughout this critical election year and a time of media austerity and renewed campus activism and rising labor organizing, independent journalism that gets to the heart of the matter is more critical than ever before. Donate right now and help us hold the powerful accountable, shine a light on issues that would otherwise be swept under the rug, and build a more just and equitable future.

For nearly 160 years, The Nation has stood for truth, justice, and moral clarity. As a reader-supported publication, we are not beholden to the whims of advertisers or a corporate owner. But it does take financial resources to report on stories that may take weeks or months to properly investigate, thoroughly edit and fact-check articles, and get our stories into the hands of readers.

Donate today and stand with us for a better future. Thank you for being a supporter of independent journalism.
