http://democracynow.org – At least 100,000 people are expected to take part in the People’s Climate March in New York City on Sunday. More than 2,000 “People’s Climate” events are planned worldwide in 150 countries. And on Monday, climate activists are planning to stage a mass sit-in in the financial district in Manhattan in an action dubbed “Flood Wall Street.” The actions are taking place ahead of Tuesday’s one-day United Nations Climate Summit. We speak to acclaimed journalist Naomi Klein, author of the new book, “This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate,” about the upcoming climate activism as well as the global grassroots movement dubbed “Blockadia,” which is fighting fossil fuel extraction from Canada to Nigeria to Greece.
