End the Era of Fossil Fuels

The United Nations Secretary-General is convening Climate Ambition Summit 2023 at United Nations Headquarters in New York City on September 20 to accelerate action by governments, business, finance, local authorities and civil society.

The Summit represents a critical political milestone for demonstrating that there is collective global will to accelerate the pace and scale of a just transition to a more equitable renewable-energy based, climate-resilient global economy. 

On the afternoon of Sunday, September 17, thousands will come together in New York City for the March to End Fossil Fuels.

This is not just another protest. This is a powerful movement of change... together, we will send a clear message to world leaders – especially President Biden – that it is time to put an end to the era of fossil fuels and invest in a clean and sustainable future for all.

Red Rebel Brigades attend demonstrations and events to support fellow activists to draw attention to the climate emergency. Costumes are red to symbolize the common blood we share with all species. Movements are slow to divert, direct and draw people into the actions... a silent plea with the public to acknowledge climate collapse, to mourn environmental losses, and to call on governments and businesses to act to mitigate climate catastrophe.
