Dear Friends	         716-332-3904	716-931-3520

We’re so excited to continue with the National Days of Action this
Saturday (Climate) and next (Immigrants). Don’t miss the stellar
climatologist Dr. Mann tomorrow!! More events follow that detailed

Note two changes in the week’s event planning: this Saturday’s march is
from Niagara Square to the MARINA, and the previously scheduled May 3 No
Press No Freedom event is cancelled.

Many Thanks, Peace, Solidarity, and Love. Cresley, Kate, Peggy, Vicki, & All

Please join us tomorrow, 4/29, at the **People's Solidarity Climate March
(Niag Sq to Marina)** in National Day of Action. **Dr. Michael Mann,
Renown Seminal Climatologist, will speak.** We’ll gather 1pm with tabling,
at Niag Sq. The Rally (w/Indigenous opening, Dr. Mann, and other speaers
and music) starts 1:30pm.

2pm-ish: March will go (southeast) down Niagara to go south on Franklin,
to Erie St, Marine Drive and along the Lake to the Marina Peace Garden for
brief gathering; then back the way we came, to Niagara Sq (est 3pm) for
more rallying, music, and speakers including an Indigenous closing.

Dr. Mann is was a key researcher in putting for the “hockey stick” graph
that first clarified that global warming was happening. He and his group
shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with Al Gore, and he was named one of
Bloomberg’s 50 most Influential People in the World in 2013. He spoke in
DC in last week’s March for Science, and is one of the most important
voices in working to counter climate catastrophe. Local leaders and youth
will also speak.

The new administration has attacked the hard-won freedoms and rights of
the American people as well as the protections of our health and the
health of our planet. On the 100th Day of the Trump Administration, buses
will go from Buffalo to DC (, and WE in Buffalo WILL
show our leaders and the world that we will resist attacks on our people,
our communities, and our planet.
