Currently in San Francisco — November 6, 2023: Rainy days and Mondays

Plus, calls grow for Gaza ceasefire in the name of climate justice.

The weather, currently.

Rain and clouds on Monday

Depending on which SF microclimate you inhabit, you may have spent the weekend not just under cloudy skies but in the thick of street-level sogginess, fog mist covering your body or mode of transit if you ventured out at certain hours.

That was just a warm-up for Monday, when there will almost certainly be rain throughout the day and evening, and more clouds and fog to go with it. Daytime highs will hit the mid-60s, and temps will drop to around 50 overnight.

On Saturday, one of the largest global anti-war rallies of the 21st century took place in dozens of cities around the world, with some 300,000 people estimated at the march in Washington, DC.

More than 10,000 civilians have died so far in the Israel-Palestine conflict. Climate justice campaigners marched in solidarity calling for a ceasefire, and drew clear parallels with what’s happening in Gaza to what’s happening all over the world where marginalized people are being forced to bear the brunt of climate chaos.

Climate change is a struggle for freedom and dignity of all living things, on a global scale.

The roots of the climate emergency are a systematic, racist devaluation of Black and Brown lives to justify first-world greed and white supremacy. There can be no climate justice without Palestinian liberation and without the liberation of oppressed peoples around the world.
