The long awaited Climate Change conference in Copenhagen has started for real now. We support 350.org.nz, saying that this week is the time to show the leaders of today that we want a strong response for climate action. Let the world and the New Zealand government know just how many of us are concerned about climate change.
Avaaz and 350.org have asked people to organise candlelight vigils.There are 1400 vigils being organised in nearly 100 countries around the world. Bring a candle, and a glass jar to protect it from the wind and a banner with for instance: “the world wants a real deal”. Ask your friends and whanau along (forward this email to a few people you know now and ask them to forward it on).
Wellington’s candlelight vigil is on Saturday, 12 December, 8.30pm – 9.15pm, Courtenay Place (on the square between Burger Fuel and the St James Theatre with an aim to spread people along the length of Courtenay Place).
