On September 21, 2014, hundreds of thousands of people from around the world gathered in New York City to march for environmental justice and use people's power to pressure world leaders to act against climate change ahead of the UN Climate Summit. In the lead up to the march, Deep Dish TV profiled a diverse group of organizations preparing for the demonstration and discussing the devastating impact that climate change is already having on communities worldwide. Filippino activists addressed the disaster of typhoon Haiyan (aka Yolanda) Many discussions focused on the root causes of climate change and how to fight against them. On the Saturday before the march, Bread and Puppet Theater put on a pageant version of their "Anti Tar Sands Manifesto". Company members talk about the importance of art as a tool for organizing for social change while engaging the community with issues surrounding the tar sand struggle affecting indigenous communities and caribou herds in Canada. Other groups featured in this video include: The Bike Bloc, We Act from Harlem and the Bronx, Peoples' Puppets of Occupy Wall Street, the May Day Space in Bushwick, Rev. Billy and the Stop Shopping Choir, and more..!
