Climate Justice Fast! ends on day 44

Yesterday, the remaining long-term Climate Justice Fasters, Anna, Sara, Matthieu and myself, Paul, ended our fasts after 44, 44, 30, and 44 days respectively. All of us are in good health and spirits, and are eager to rebuild our strength and bodies for future service to the global climate movement.

Obviously, we were deeply disappointed, though perhaps not surprised, by the Copenhagen climate summit. As one more year ticked by, narrowing our precious window of opportunity for preventing catastrophic climate change, again our leaders’ words were large but their moral courage was absent. Again, empty promises and political spin took the place of real action. And again, the world saw that we cannot rely upon the powers that be to secure our future.

Nevertheless, there is hope. The brave and uncompromising stance of the smaller developing countries in Copenhagen was of historic importance, as it signalled to the wealthy world that nothing less than just, science-based action will ever be accepted.

There is also hope in the snowballing of the global climate movement. As just one example, last Thursday over 10,000 people from all over the world, including Mary Robinson, Naomi Klein, Vandana Shiva and Bill McKibben, joined together to fast for a day in a vigil for climate justice, an action inspired by CJF.

So the fight goes on. The clock is ticking, but we are growing stronger. Read Anna’s thoughts about ending the fast, and what COP15 all meant, here: http://www.climatejusticefast.com/blog/entry/the-end-of-cop15-and-the-en...

We would like to extend our love and gratitude to everyone who has supported us throughout this campaign. It has meant the world to us, and frankly, has gotten us through it. And once we've all had a little break to put some meat back on our bones, we look forward to fighting with you, side by side, for climate justice. Until we win.

Peace, Love, and Solidarity,

Paul
