Hunger Strikers in “Moral Call to Climate Action”

Hi all,
An exciting update for the CJF crew in Cornwall;

Extract:

Hoping to emotionally engage world leaders and ordinary citizens, hundreds of people from around the globe have entered their fourth week of fasting in the run-up to the Copenhagen Climate Conference.

“I am doing the Climate Justice Fast (CJF) because all the other forms of activism – while very necessary – are clearly not working fast enough,” Anna Keenan, one of the organisers of the fast, told IPS.

The CJF is an international hunger strike to call for immediate action to cut greenhouse gas emissions and address the climate crisis. Participants have pledged to go hungry until at least the end of the Copenhagen climate summit on Dec. 18 – a total of more than 40 days.

“The fact that they are doing this is symptomatic of a huge public frustration. I understand and respect it, but I’m asking them not to put their personal health at risk,” Yvo de Boer, executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, which is organising the Copenhagen conference, told TerraViva.

Seven climate justice activists have committed themselves to a water-only hunger strike, and have gone totally without food since Nov. 6, joined by hundreds of solidarity fasters from 22 countries.
