Climate Change Witness, 7th October.
As part of the global action calling for just solutions to the climate crisis, Bury St Edmunds Quakers hold silent witnesses to the pain and harm caused by climate change. They take place evert first Saturday of the month from 11.30 – 12.00 at the bottom of Angel Hill, opposite the entrance to the Abbey Gardens. At this Saturdays witness everyone is very welcome to join us for Coffee after the witness to discuss how we move forward ( the witness has been going for almost two years ).
We wish to bear witness for people around the world who are living with the impacts of climate change known as ‘loss and damage’; to the need for an international fund to bring about climate justice; to the necessity of working to minimise further damage for future generations; to acknowledge our privileged position and recognise our own contribution in damaging creation, and to provide a local witness to global inequality. We believe that out of our deep silence, grief, fear and hope are urging us to action.
People of all faiths and none will be very welcome join us for as long as they wish. It will be an opportunity to join in spirit with similar events calling for climate justice which have been planned by multi-faith groups around the country .
