Monday's march from Battery Park near the waterfront to the financial district of New York and the sit-in near Wall Street was high energy and powerful. Acknowledging the connection between capitalism, big corporations and climate change is an important part of an effective movement for climate justice and that statement was made loudly and clearly today.

On Sunday morning, my colleague Kevin and I walked to the People's Climate March site adjacent to Central Park. We walked along dozens of city blocks that were each assigned to a different section of the march.
I'm a community organizer and facilitator from Saskatchewan and I am in New York City for the People's Climate March. I first got involved in climate change organizing 13 years ago, when a group called The Climate Change Caravan biked across Canada.
