Demonstrate good times, come on!
I’m all over Treehugger today. Go figure.
Anyway, TH brings news of a massive worldwide series of demonstrations that, for reasons unfathomable, I wasn’t aware of.
Apparently, on Dec. 3 — that’s this Saturday! — to coincide with the COP MOP talks in Montreal, groups in over 30 countries around the world are demonstrating:
These demonstrations demand that the USA and Australia ratify the Kyoto Protocol immediately, and that the entire world community move as rapidly as possible to a stronger emissions reductions treaty that will be both equitable and effective in stabilising ‘greenhouse’ gases and preventing dangerous climate change.
I tend to think it’s a mistake for enviros to focus so obsessively on Kyoto, but as a symbolic matter it’s hard to argue against focusing attention on U.S. and Australian intransigence.
So go out and demonstrate on Saturday!
