Over 2000 people gathered in the shadows of the Augusta State Capitol Building on a sunny, spirited, festive Saturday morning to participate in the 2017 Maine People's Climate March. At the same time, 200,000 people were pouring onto the streets of Washington, D.C. And scores of thousands more in 370 cities across the globe joined in.


This outpouring of passion gave credence to the voice of April 29. Among its messages:

It’s a matter of physics.

It’s a matter of justice.

Show up. Stand up. Be heard…The time to act is NOW.

(or, as one sign held high in Augusta put it: Complacency kills)


Brian Leonard of Maine Sky Media captured much of the Maine People's Climate March here, and the Peoples Climate Movement has a video recap of the March in Washington here.

Conceived originally by its organizers less as a “march” than a “mobilization,” we in 350 Maine hope that the PCM serves every one of us as a springboard to further action—in Washington and at our own town and state level. What will your next step be? Here are two options.

 

Remove your money (divest) from banks that support climate-destroying companies and projects.

 

Get involved with the Extreme Energy and Solutions Team to confront fossil fuel threats in Maine and help seize opportunities to grow the renewable energy economy.

 What is 350 Maine?

We're building a grassroots network across the state to address the crisis of climate change and a world too dependent on dirty fossil fuels.

Together, under the banner of the message and organizing model of 350.org, we're forging a path to a cleaner, more sustainable future that puts the long term health of the planet and its inhabitants above the short term profits of energy companies.
