Vigil for Survival

Yesterday we joined a vigil to reflect and pray for a fair, ambitious and binding deal to be agreed in Copenhagen.

Candles from the vigil

Candles for climate justice

The vigil brough together a global movement of campaigners. A campaigner who was at the Kyoto Protocol talks shared how this movement has grown so much over the past few years. Young and old. From north and south. We are united globally in our plea for climate justice.

Campaigners join together in a vigil for survival - remembering those suffering most from the changing climateEach candle represented 10,000 people who’ve acted for climate justice. Many people had also been fasting during the climate talks to demonstrate their commitment to see global action to tackle climate change.

Today we expect outcomes from the climate talks – watch this space for final decisions and Tearfund’s response. – please continue to pray for a FAB deal to be agreed today.
