My name is Megan, I'm part of a group of NGOs and community orgs,
including Greenpeace, WWF, Oxfam, Unicef, the Anglican church, the CTU, and many
others. We have all been involved in organising an event in Wellington on
December the 5th, the eve of the Copenhagen climate negotiations, to demonstrate
the diversity of the climate movement in New Zealand in calling for ambitious
and fair carbon targets.
We would like to ask Wellington's branches of Cycle Action Network to be
part of the walk from Civic Square to Parliament. I am asking community groups
and organisations to attend and show their support for ambitious, fair and
binding international carbon targets, and to be visibly identifiable, perhaps
with a banner, on bicycles or identifying clothing.
The event is thematically tied to a simultaneous event in Auckland, being organised by Greenpeace, and supported by many of these same organisations. Across the country, there will be thousands of people on the streets, showing their support for carbon targets that will are fair and binding.
As well as asking you to organise a CAN presence at the walk, can I also
ask you to publicise this event through your networks, so we can get as many
people in attendance as possible.
On the eve of the planet's most important climate negotiations, millions of people around the world and thousands in New Zealand will be demonstrating their commitment to an ambitious and fair carbon target. To get the message across, we all need to be there, loud, determined and strong! Get your friends, family, and colleagues organised to support Wellington's 'walk for the planet'. December the 5th. 1pm. Civic Square. Because there is no planet B.
