Global Day of Action 9

Posted by Brad Johnson Sat, 08 Dec 2007 05:00:00 GMT

The Global Climate Campaign intends synchronised demonstrations around the world on Saturday December 8th 2007 – in as many places as possible – to call on world leaders to take urgent action on climate change.

The ‘Call to Action’ for these demonstrations and related events that will take place on December 8th 2007 is as follows :

“We demand that world leaders take the urgent and resolute action that is needed to prevent the catastrophic destabilisation of global climate, so that the entire world can move as rapidly as possible to a stronger emissions reductions treaty which is both equitable and effective in preventing dangerous climate change.

We also demand that the long-industrialised countries that have emitted most greenhouse gases up to now take most of the responsibility for the adaptive measures that have to be taken, especially by low-emitting countries with limited economic resources.”

We feel that there is an overwhelming need to create a groundswell of global opinion to push for the urgent and radical action on climate change, without which we risk a global catastrophe of unimaginable proportions.

Brought to you by the group that did the April 14th event up on the hill, this promises to be the biggest DC event! We will meet at the Lincoln Memorial from 1-3 pm for speakers, video petitions and a whole lot of awareness.

Confirmed speakers include Van Jones, head of the Ella Baker Center, and Dr. Beverly Wright of the Deep South Center for Environmental Justice.

In I Have a Dream where I’m Biking, bicyclists will be leaving from American University around noon and will be meeting “The Big One in DC” down at the Memorial as they are about to start.
