Call for Mass Action: 2 December, 2pm, Speakers’ Corner, Durban

THE PLANET IS WARMING UP. AND SO ARE WE.

In preparation for the mass march on the Global Day of Action this Saturday, December 3rd, the call has been made for a mass, non-violent, “warm-up” action tomorrow, Friday, December 2nd.

Context: Despite overwhelming evidence of the accumulating impacts of climate change, despite the widely recognised fact that current “most likely” scenarios will lead to the deaths of almost 200 million people across Africa alone within the century, “negotiators” inside the ICC continue to horse-trade for profits, carbon markets, and the bad-faith lies of a so-called “green economy” – dooming generations of people in developing countries to increasing misery, insecurity, and worse.

We say: NOT ON OUR WATCH.

EVENT: Mass demonstration against the Conference Of Polluters
LOCATION: Speakers’ Corner – Corner of Samora Machel and Bram Fisher
DATE: 2 December 2011
TIME: 2pm
VOLUME: Very, very loud

Delegations are expected from the Democratic Left Front, the Rural Women’s Alliance, Climate Justice Now!, Climate Action Network, and allied movements and formations from around the world.

If you’re in Durban, be there and bring friends. If you can’t be in Durban, please send solidarity messages and distribute this call as widely as possible.

ANOTHER WORLD IS NECESSARY.
