STATEMENT OF SUPPORT
Since 2014, the Peoples Climate Movement has made the argument that to change everything, it takes everyone. Now more than ever that message rings true. This week we’ve seen another supreme court justice step down, opening the door to a super conservative Trump-majority that could threaten the most basic of our civil liberties for decades. We’ve seen SCOTUS deal a dangerous blow to the labor movement; a decision that will deeply impact working people’s ability to organize effectively across the country. We’ve seen a xenophobic executive order become a law banning global citizens from entering the country because of the majority religion of the country from which they hail. And we’ve seen thousands of migrating families – mothers, fathers, and children – denied due process, detained, and their family unit torn apart. What these attacks have in common, in part, is an agenda that increases the power of the 1%, that transforms good government into a system that only serves wealthy business interests, and keeps us divided.
But they’ve failed. We aren’t divided. As democracy comes under attack and repressive and right wing movements in the US and around the world are emboldened, we are building a movement that is strong enough to change the balance of power and protect our rights.
PCM believes our struggling allies are more than progressive partners working towards a common goal, they are more than lists of folks disproportionately impacted by the ravages of climate change; they are our brothers and our sisters, our mothers and our fathers. They are all of us. We are all of them. Today we rise with detained immigrants and those fleeing places vulnerable to climate disasters. We rise with our working brothers and sisters, fighting with us side by side for a clean and renewable energy economy that guarantees family-sustaining jobs and the right to unionize. We rise with these men, women, and children for Climate, Jobs, and Justice. We do it today, we’ll do it on September 8th, we’ll do it on November 6th, and in the weeks, months, and years to come. We will change everything, because we are everyone.
