Indigenous Delegates from climate-challenged nations around the world address the Moving Planet NYC rally. This is an excerpt of their presentation. All the delegates work collaboratively on the media project Conversations with the Earth: Indigenous Voices on Climate Change (conversationsearth.org).
Moving Planet, a project of 350.org partnered with NYPIRG in New York City, was held across the street from the UN as the General Assembly convened inside. Marching and riding bikes from points throughout Manhattan and the Boroughs, New Yorkers met here in the Plaza with renowned climate scientists, educators, media activists, and indigenous delegates. The focus of all discussion was building a community of climate justice, and moving collectively beyond the use of fossil fuels.
