Die-In at Grand Central for Phillippines and Climate Action

Tomorrow Sunday 11/17 @ 12:45  Meet at the fountain in Bryant Park  

Last minute Solidarity Action led by New Orleans performance artist Jenna deBoisblanc http://jdeboi.com/2013/10/03/why-i-care-so-damn-much-about-climate-change/

We're going to walk around Grand Central, and when Captain Planet holds up poster #1, everyone falls to the ground, dead. Captain Planet cycles through the following signs: 
1. Climate change is about human rights. 
2. Time to act on climate. 
3. NY's heart is with the Philippines. 
4. #WeStandWithYou 
5. #climateaction 
6. #NoKXL 
On #4, we all stand up.

Tomorrow's action will be included in the #WeStandWithYou photo campaign: Folks from the Philippines to Norway to the Middle East will add their voice to the halls of the UN and back to the Philippines.

World governments are meeting in Warsaw, Poland at the COP19 (Conference of Parties) talks on climate change until Nov 23. The lead negotiator for the Philippines, Naderev (Yeb) Saño, is currently on hunger strike until meaningful progress is made in the negotiations.
