Occupy Long Beach Presents:
Earth Day 2012
Sunday, April 22nd
12:00pm – 2:00pm @ on the sand at Temple Avenue
2:00pm – 9:00pm @ Bixby Park (Broadway and Junipero)
On April 22, more than one billion people around the globe will participate in Earth Day 2012.
People of all nationalities and backgrounds will voice their appreciation for the planet and demand its protection. Together we will stand united for a sustainable future and
call upon individuals, organizations, and governments to do their part.
While the a majority of American people call out for alternative energy sources, our government only responds to the interests of these big polluters. The very corporations that lobby our government in order to pollute, publicly admit that climate change is an issue, but ignore it in favor of continued record profits for Wall Street.
On Earth Day April 22nd 2012, let’s stand together and raise awareness and celebrate our glorious planet!
The day begins at noon on the beach at the foot of Temple Ave. to create a “Human Peace Sign”. Come out and stand with your community and tell the world we want Peace for our Planet and her People.
We will have photographers on the bluff to take pictures and all participants can request a digital copy of the official photo.
At 1:30pm we will walk to Bixby Park for a day filled with live music, teach-ins, workshops and activities.
Bring a blanket or chair and prepare to settle in for a fun filled day.
Announcing a special visit by: Vermont’s finest Ben & Jerry’s will stop by the park to give out free samples!
Ben & Jerry’s is committed to family farms, fair trade, climate justice, peace building and proud supporters of the Occupy Movement.
Taken from the Ben & Jerry’s website: We have a progressive, nonpartisan social mission that seeks to meet human needs and eliminate injustices in our local, national and international community’s by integrating these concerns into our day-to-day business activities.
