Our ‘Climate Justice and Jobs’ Tricolore made its first appearance at our very successful ‘Climate. Justice. Paris’ event on November 6th.
What is it?
It is a French Flag carrying the demands of the ‘Climate. Justice. Jobs’ marches. These are:
- No to Dirty Energy!
- Yes to Renewables!
- Climate Jobs Now!
- Justice for People!
It also includes a bank of spaces for people to provide their names to support these demands.
So, we’d be really happy if you joined us in Paris, https://kirkleescampaignagainstclimatechange.wordpress.com/2015/10/13/join-us-121215-in-paris-kccc-travel-arrangements-for-11-13-december/ but if you can’t make it, you can join us in spirit and we can carry your voice with us across the Channel to the mobilisation in Paris.
We’ll take a photo of the Tricolore with all its Kirklees signatories in front of the sites of the city. You’ll be able to see this on our website soon after 12th December.
If you live in Kirklees and you’d like to add your name, please send us your name and town/ part of town/ village (e.g Joe Smith, Marsh) to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll put you on.
We’ll be using this in Huddersfield as part of our Paris Conversation with the public.
We’ll also be giving our little business-card-sized cards containing the text to 350.org’s petition to world leaders on one side and the link to the petition on the other:
“We need a climate deal that’s in line with the imperatives of science and justice. Keep 80% of fossil fuels in the ground and finance a just transition to 100% renewable energy by 2050” (350.org/paris/)
Why not use them for your own Paris conversations with friends, family, workmates, at the local pub or café?
You can download the Business cards with 350 Paris petition and print on card. Alternatively, you can order cards from us. They cost 1p per double sided card + postage costs (unless you would like to pick them up from us in person). Please email us to discuss payment methods when you order. Please allow one week from order to receiving the cards.
Finally, please get in touch if you’d like to join us in Huddersfield on 21st November for the Paris Conversation from 12pm-1.30pm, https://kirkleescampaignagainstclimatechange.wordpress.com/2015/11/02/join-us-211115-in-and-around-huddersfield-for-a-double-action-polluters-out-people-in-paris-conversation/
