Fri 06 Dec
5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Join the GREEN FRIDAY alliance for the vigil to demand CLIMATE JUSTICE NOW from the UN after 25 years of failed international climate talks, and from the government in the coming general election.
We’ll start with guest speakers and climate carols at 5.30pm outside Usher Hall on Lothian Road.
Then we will go to make a human chain along the western end of Prince’s Street from 6:15pm for a vigil for climate justice and in solidarity with social justice protesters in Chile, where the government has chosen to pull out of hosting COP 25, the latest United Nations climate conference, rather than meet their demands.
We’ll end in St Cuthbert’s Church at around 7.00 pm to hear from campaigners who will dial in from the UN talks Madrid, where they have been moved to.
Please join us in PUTTING PEOPLE AND PLANET BEFORE PROFIT, with banners, climate carols and Chilean waves, on this international day of action
Bring your banners, placards, torches,whistles, music
Wear something bright. Wrap up warm!
