Next Climate Change Silent Witness to be held on Saturday,4th December, 11.30 to 12.00 at the bottom of Angel Hill, Bury St.Edmunds.
On Saturday 4th December, Bury St Edmunds Quakers will hold another Silent Witness calling for just solutions to the climate crisis, and to the pain and harm caused by climate change. The Witness will take place at the bottom of Angel Hill between 11.30 and 12.00.
Over fifty people joined the last act of witness on the 6th November at some point, both Quakers and non Quakers and including members of other faith groups and of none. All are again very welcome to join us for as long as they wish.
We will to continue to hold further acts of witness on the first Saturday of the month. Please check this website fo confirmation.
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 our deep silence will enable us to reflect on the grief, fear and hope which urge us to action.
