In recognition of the importance of the Paris Climate talks which are scheduled to begin November 30th groups including Avaaz, 350.org and People’s Climate Movement have called for actions worldwide. To help emphasize the need for bold action we will be holding a rally near the Irvine Spectrum the day before the talks commence. From an article in the Guardian:

The governments of more than 190 nations will gather in Paris to discuss a possible new global agreement on climate change, aimed at reducing global greenhouse gas emissions and thus avoiding the threat of dangerous climate change.
Current commitments on greenhouse gas emissions run out in 2020, so at Paris governments are expected to produce an agreement on what happens for the decade after that at least, and potentially beyond.

To help emphasize the need for bold action we will be holding a rally near the Irvine Spectrum the day before the talks commence.
