Climate Justice Fast enters week four

Climate Justice Fast! enters week four.

Dear friends,

Climate Justice Fast!, has now entered it's fourth week. Seven climate activists are now on day 23 of their water-only strike. These are:

Anna Keenan, Micheal Morphett and Paul Connor (AUS), Diane Wilson, Mikayla Irle and Chuck Burns (USA), and Sara Svensson (SWE).

Since we begun, we have also been joined by Daniel Lau (AUS), who is now on day 16 of his strike, and Matthieu Balle (FRA), who is now on day 8. In addition, we have been joined by over 100 solidarity fasters, from 22 different countries, including Romania, Honduras, and the Central African Republic.

The participants of Climate Justice Fast! have been humbled by the support and encouragement we have received to date, and wish to extend our warmest thanks to those who have expressed their solidarity with our action.

This week in Canberra Australia for example, there was a peaceful blockade of the entrance to parliament house, staged by some 150 climate protestors. Three representatives of Climate Justice Fast! were present, one of whom, Michael Morphett, received a huge ovation from the gathered crowd as he left the blockade. Michael is 61 years old, and by far the CJF participant with the most on the line. It was a truly moving moment for all of us who were there.

At 23 days, our bodies are tired and sore, but our resolve is stronger than ever. We feel blessed to be alive at this time of history, fighting for this cause with all we have, and witnessing a generation rapidly awakening to its own truth.

In the coming weeks, it is certain that our words will begin to become less and less eloquent, and our communications less organized. We hope, however, that as this occurs, the message that our action sends will speak for itself ever more clearly.

And when the COP15 starts in December, a number of us will be there in person- our vigil a reminder to all present that they are part of the most important meeting, and generation, in all of our history- and of the true enormity of the decisions we currently face as a species.

Once again, in solidarity with all who are fighting for climate justice,

Paul
