Climate Change Witness
As part of the global day of action calling for just solutions to the climate crisis, Bury St Edmunds Quakers will be holding another silent witness to the pain and harm caused by climate change. It will take place on Saturday 1st January 2022 from 11.30 – 12.00 at the bottom of Angel Hill, opposite the entrance to the Abbey Gardens.
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.
We hope to continue these acts of witness on the first Saturday of each month. 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 .
