THE STORY:

HELP US FREE FROSTPAW THE POLAR BEAR!

Frostpaw was arrested at #FloodWallStreet.

Leaders of the Center for Biological Diversity were arrested Monday, Sept 22, in an act of civil disobedience at the #FloodWallStreet climate protest in Manhattan. Images of Frostpaw's arrest have gone viral across the internet.

“World leaders have failed all of us on the climate crisis, and frustration has hit a tipping point — not just for the environmental movement but for people around the globe,” said Kieran Suckling, executive director of the Center. “There have never been so many people from so many parts of the world speaking in a united voice for climate action. What happened this week will only build on itself until world leaders finally act.”

Kieran was arrested Monday evening along with Frostpaw (admirably animated by Center cofounder Peter Galvin). The arrests took place a day after more than 400,000 people marched in New York, joining rallies around the world in the largest demonstration ever in the history of the climate movement.

“Global warming is putting people, wildlife and indeed the entire planet on the path toward disaster. President Obama and other world leaders have an indisputable moral obligation to take action, but nothing they’ve done so far comes close to matching the magnitude of the crisis we face,” said Suckling.

HELP US FREE FROSTPAW FROM A DISTASTROUS FATE WORSE THAN ANY NIGHT IN JAIL. SUPPORT THE CENTER'S FIGHT AGAINST GLOBAL WARMING.

Scientists say that, in order to avoid climate catastrophe, carbon in the atmosphere must be reduced to at least 350 parts per million, which means drastic cuts in carbon pollution that must be implemented soon.

“The window for avoiding this catastrophe is closing quickly, so the decisions we make now will have a profound impact on the planet for hundreds or even thousands of years,” said Suckling. “And make no mistake, failing to act is a conscious decision and one that’s unacceptable to people around the world.”

All funds raised through this campaign will go to the Center's Climate Action Fund.
