Climate justice: sign the petition now!
Monday, November 07, 2011
There is a lot happening in preparation for the United Nations climate conference in Durban (the "COP 17") in December, as climate activists and faith groups mobilise for the event. ACT is supporting the Time for Climate Justice campaign, and ACT members will also be taking part in the interfaith rally on November 27 and the prayer service on the 4 December in Durban, organised by the African We have faith – act now for climate justice campaign. This is a joint campaign of Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, traditional religions and youth in Africa, supported by the World Council of Churches, ecumenical advocacy group APRODEV and ACT Alliance. ACT’s general secretary John Nduna and patron Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu urge everyone to take part in the campaign. Check out the youtube video and spread the word far and wide! Please sign the petition too, the main mobilising tool of the campaign, and link to it from your blog or website. Archbishop Desmond Tutu will hand over signatures to world leaders in front of 50,000 people at the interfaith rally in Kings Park Stadium in Durban on November 27.
