Rally for Peace & Planet

Start: Saturday, April 20, 202411:00 AM

End: Saturday, April 20, 2024 1:00 PM

Join a coalition of Peace and Climate Action organizations (including New Hampshire Peace Action, 350NH, Sierra Club, Climate Action NH, and Back from the Brink) for a rally at City Plaza. We will also host an art build just outside of the NH Peace Action Office (4 Park St #304 Concord NH, right next to The State House) at 10AM.

Earth Day is coming up, and while this is a celebratory time we should also remember that we live in a country with stiff resistance to taking action on climate change. A big reason for this is the bipartisan support for endless money to the Military Industrial Complex which consumes 4.6 billion gallons of oil annually. Help us show solidarity between environmentalists and the anti war movement and learn about the ways that you can get involved in your area. The rally will feature speakers from the different organizations, banner making, music, and a lot of community building. See you there!

Speakers include:

·       Rishi Gurudevan, Students for Nuclear Disarmament

·       Olivia Zink, Open Democracy

·       Catherine Corkery, NH Sierra Club

·       Drew Polatchek, Climate Action

·       Bill Maddocks, NH Peace Action

Parking can be found at 17 School St Garage or State St Parking Garage, among numerous other locations.
