The group gathered at Vogel Plaza in Medford holding signs and lighting candles.

Organizers say they hope to draw attention to what they see as the connection to the recent typhoon that ravaged the Philippines and climate change.

A similar demonstration is planned at 12:30 p.m. at the Ashland Plaza downtown.
