As appropriately put by Yvo De Boer, Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC, “the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen (COP 15) will be a turning point in the fight to prevent (the) climate disaster. The science demands it, the economics support it, (and) future generations require it.” COP15 will begin in a few hours from now.
The final week of the Copenhagen summit is the 12th hour: the defining, crucial moment for leaders to sign on to a treaty to avert climate catastrophe and unleash a low-carbon future. In communities everywhere on earth, we can lead the way by showing the leaders exactly what we want them to do. But they will not act until they hear us. So, it is time to raise our voice, and it is time to get loud – FOR the Climate!
A Drumbeat to Save the Planet:
Climate Ke Liye Bajao!
December 12-12/12 is the midpoint of the Copenhagen climate talks. At this crucual moment, governments around the globe need to hear a clear, simple message from people everywhere: The time has come to sign a fair, ambitious, and binding climate treaty. Join the Global Day of Climate Action – December 12h – and participate in what will be the largest public protest in history. A protest to wake up world leaders to the urgency of climate change!
In Delhi and dozens of cities in India, the Climate Satyagraha Coalition is organising a CITIZEN’s march. As a symbolic action to wake up the world leaders to the urgency of climate change, we will make noise for the Planet using anything we can lay our hands on: dholak, khartaal, mridang, bansuri or even spoons, plates and buckets.
We are the last generation that can ensure the plante doesn’t tip over the chaos. Its time we showed that we don’t want talk anymore, we want action. We want leaders not politicians – lets show them they they can’t take us for granted. That the negotiations they are engaged in are about people’s lives, not just words.
Come, join the Rally at Rajghat on 12th December from 11 am onwards!
