Hungry for Climate Justice
Members of several Climate Action groups conducted a vigil outside Joe Oliver’s office Oct 1. The main organizing group was “Climate Fast” http://climatefast.ca/ who were there all day from 7 am to 7 :30 pm.
Also represented were Green Awakening Network and Citizens’ Climate Lobby Canada http://
Tom Cullen of Fairlawn attended towards the end of the vigil, seeing this moment after sunset.
“Climate justice is one of the key ethical and moral challenges for our time. As people of faith, the United Church believes that we can’t apply a quick technological fix to climate change, but instead need to change how we live our lives on this fragile planet. The Earth can’t be seen only as a source of resource extraction and wealth generation, but as a community in which we live and move and have our being. We must work to repair the world—making a new global covenant—through personal life changes, spiritual renewal, and political action. This action needs to happen at all levels, with changes in all institutions and economies.”
