The Fast for Climate Justice

***Scroll down for video.***

Diane Wilson—environmentalist, unreasonable woman, and founding member of Code Pink—will be involved in this coordinated international fast for climate justice from the beginning of November until the middle of December. She’s one of the ones who’s in it for the long haul. We wish ClimateJusticeFast luck in fighting for this important issue, and Diane Wilson good health as she puts herself through this grueling ordeal for her principles.

From ClimateJusticeFast’s Paul Connor:

Dear friends,

It is with great excitement that I report to you the progress of the upcoming international hunger strike for climate action: Climate Justice Fast!

In the last month, the international response to CJF has been inspiring and overwhelming. There are now nearing 60 people from 11 different countries world wide preparing to fast, for periods ranging from a few days to 45 and beyond, from the 2nd of November, to coincide with the UN climate talks in Barcelona, until at least the end of Copenhagen climate conference, on the 19th of December.

We are offering the strongest form of moral protest against climate inaction, and standing up for true climate justice. We call on both the global public and their political representatives to fulfil their moral responsibility to undertake every action possible to halt and reverse climate change, and to protect the world’s most vulnerable people from its effects.

The participants of CJF will show the world that climate change is not just another issue, but is an unprecedented emergency, which calls for unprecedented action. We will symbolize the passion and commitment of the global climate movement, a movement destined to become the greatest social movement the world has ever known, and destined to succeed.

But we need your help. There are a number of ways that you can help CJF achieve its enormous potential for creating change. You can find this information and more on www.climatejusticefast.com.

Fast: Join the hunger strike, or undertake a shorter solidarity fast. Find out more at www.climatejusticefast.com/about.

Volunteer: Help us with promotion, media, or logistics. Find out more at www.climatejusticefast.com/node/18.

Donate: We need funding for IT costs, promotion (T-shirts, banners), professional media support, and financial support for families of long term fasters. Details are at www.climatejusticefast.com/donate.

Create: Filmmaker? Musician? Artist? Designer? Your skills can help CJF to reach and move people, and by so doing change the world. Contact us at www.climatejusticefast.com/contact.

So please, don’t hesitate to become a part of CJF. Past generations did not know about climate change, and future generations will be too late to stop it. It’s up to us. It’s time to pull out all the stops.

Sincerely,

Paul Connor
