COP26 Climate Rally in Albany on November 6, 11 AM Radix Center
Capital District climate, community and faith groups are organizing a rally and march in Albany on Saturday, November 6 as part of the COP26-focused Global Day of Action for Climate Justice.
The rally and march will start at 11 AM at the Radix Ecological Sustainability Center, 153 Grand St, Albany. The march will conclude with a rally at the federal O’Brien Building at 12:30 PM at Clinton and Pearl Sts. Hundreds of similar climate events will take place that day worldwide, with large rallies planned for Glasgow and London. The Radix Center will hold an open house starting at 10:30 PM and will serve as the rally site in case of rain.
The rally is starting in the South End to highlight the need to ensure that climate funding targets the communities and countries that are the principal victims of the burning of fossil fuels. For example, the state’s $200 million investment in offshore wind tower manufacturing at the Port of Albany must ensure green economic development in the adjacent South End, including good jobs for residents and clean energy upgrades and other improvements to housing. The March will also focus on the need for racial justice, stopping the financing of fossil fuels and moving the state Capitol complex to 100% clean renewable energy.
