On September 8th, 2018, No Coal in Oakland joined 30,000 marchers from around the Bay Area, California, the U.S. and the globe “to demand our elected leaders commit to no new fossil fuels and a just and fair transition to 100% renewable energy” at the coming week’s GCAS and beyond. The San Francisco march — Rise for Climate Jobs + Justice — lived up to expectations, and the 50+ panel street mural at Civic Center was awesome. See’s press release & photo albums on Flickr for a rich chronicle of the day; the full-size aerial photo of the murals surrounding Civic Center Plaza, shown in lesser-resolution at the top of this article, is from’s Best of Rise for Climate San Francisco album.

Here are a few of NCIO on the march (photo credits below):
