PLATTSBURGH CITY, NY -- 5/9/2016
Local activists met this evening at 30 City Hall Place to discuss global warming issues and plan for an event on Sunday.
Daniel Helmer, coordinator for the local 350 Org group, led the audience in practicing a series of chants that will be part of a public event on May 15. On that day the activists will gather at Macdonough Monument to promote awareness of the global warming threat.
From 12 noon to 6 PM the Break Free from Fossil Fuels event -- under the auspices of 350 Plattsburgh, Adirondack Climate Coalition and other groups -- will feature a regional rally, carnival, and climate parade. This family friendly event is part of an international movement advocating green energy over fossil fuels.
