Vigil for Climate
1st November 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
On 1st November, to mark the beginning of the COP, we will be meeting at Carfax for a solemn vigil to honour those, here and in the Global South, whose lives have already been lost or blighted by floods, wildfires, heatwaves and crop failure caused by global heating.
We will begin by singing, supported by local choir the Sea Green Singers, ‘Enough is Enough’, the COP song written by Scottish folk singer Karine Polwart. (If you would like to learn this, there will be a workshop on 30 October, 2-4pm, at New Road Baptist Church, Bonn Square.) We will then stand in reflective silence until 7pm. Some people are choosing to stay on and keep their vigil through the entire night, and others are very welcome to stay for as long as they like to support them in this.
This is an inclusive action: please spread the word: all are welcome.
Bring candles/torches, and wear black.
