Ahead of a United Nations climate summit in New York City, hundreds rallied at the Peace Arch border crossing Saturday afternoon in a show of solidarity on both sides of the border to fight climate change.

 Environmentalists say climate change knows no borders or boundaries. The issue of fossil fuel development, according to the protestors, needs to be addressed from a region wide perspective to better protect the ecosystem. Protestors in Canada and the U.S. chanted “no means no,” demonstrating their opposition to an expansion of coal terminals, tar sands pipelines and liquefied natural gas. The Wilderness Committee's Eoin Madden organized this event.
