We air highlights of the special.

Kennedy Jr. “American politics is driven by two forces: One is intensity, and the other is money,” Kennedy says.- The world-renowned musician and activist Sting stops by our three-hour special from the People’s Climate March to talk about why he is marching with indigenous activists on the frontlines of the environmental movement. “The indigenous peoples message has been consistent from the beginning: We are in danger,” Sting says. “These people are not complacent, I am not complacent. We have to do something.”- Earlier this month, two climate activists were set to go on trial in Massachusetts for blocking the shipment of 40,000 tons of coal to the Brayton Point power plant, a 51-year-old facility that is one of the regions largest contributors to greenhouse gases. But in a surprise move, local prosecutor Sam Sutter dropped the criminal charges and reduced three other charges to civil offenses, calling climate change one of the gravest crises our planet has ever faced. On Sunday, the activists, Jay OHara and Ken Ward, marched with Sutter at the Peoples Climate March in New York City.- Mary Robinson, former Irish president and U.N. high commissioner for human rights. She now heads the Mary Robinson Foundation – Climate Justice.- Tony deBrum, foreign minister of the Marshall Islands.- Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant, who recently became the first Socialist elected to city office in Seattle in over a century.Watch the full 3-hour special Democracy Now! broadcast from the People’s Climate March:http://www.democracynow.org/live/peoples_climate_marchLearn more about climate change from reports in our vast news archive:http://www.democracynow.org/topics/climate_changeDemocracy Now!, is an independent global news hour that airs weekdays on 1,200+ TV and radio stations Monday through Friday.
