Climate Justice Fast

I'm writing to you to let you know about CJF, a hunger strike timed to coincide with the COP 15 climate talks in December. (more info. below)
We believe that this campaign is taking climate protest to the next level.
I am web-developmet co-ordinator and will undertake a solidarity fast with those going without food for 40 days or more.

Climate Justice Hunger Strike/ La Huelga De Hambre/ Internationalen Hungerstreik/ Mogok Makan Internasional

Dear Friends,

I am writing to you to report on the progress of Climate Justice Fast!- an internationally-networked hunger strike for climate justice, in the lead-up to COP15 in Copenhagen this December.

The last few months have been an incredible time for CJF. Independent
activists across five continents have committed themselves to joining
the hunger strike.

For more information, see _www.climatejusticefast.com
_

This November, these activists will be joining together at this crucial moment in history to call for climate justice, using the hunger strike as a rarely-employed but powerful form of peaceful, non-violent protest.

We are from all walks of life, including students, teachers, NGO directors, clergy and retirees. Yet we all share the common conviction that we simply cannot sit by and watch while government inaction, industry lobbying, and our own over-consumption and over-development drive the planet into an irreversible catastrophe.

Business-as-usual is the road to a disaster, and we need to move quickly to a new way of doing things. Similarly, at this crucial moment in history, as activism and climate campaigning is escalating world over, we need to move beyond activism-as-usual.

If you feel the same way, please join us, or support us in any way you can. We are particularly seeking political advice and counsel, medical support, media and campaigning support and organisational outreach.

We will push our own physical boundaries in an act that conveys our passion and sense of urgency on the climate issue, beyond what we can express in words. Each participant’s decision to fast is an individual choice – starting on November 1^st , and lasting for however long they are willing, issuing a personal set of demands to their own choice of audience. The community of people who commit to fasting will be connected to share their philosophies, demands and to prepare together.

Please visit out our website, _www.climatejusticefast.com
_, which contains more information about CJF, as well as a short history of hunger strikes and medical information about fasting. You can contact us via the contact form therein or simply by email to climatejusticefast@gmail.com

We would like to end with the words of Mahatma Gandhi, which we believe are every bit as pertinent today as when he first expressed them:

“The golden rule is to act fearlessly upon what one believes to be right.”

Sincerely,

Anna Keenan & Paul Connor.

PS. Please circulate this email to others who you feel would be interested, and we can begin the conversation.
