Climate justice report about COP 27 demonstration
November 12th 2022
Sarah Shaw and I went to the Climate Justice gathering at the Clock Tower, in Leicester city centre, to express our concern over the decisions being made at COP 27. We took our Quaker ‘Cherish the Earth’ banner and several other people helped us to hold it up and we were also joined by Quakers from Devon who were visiting Leicester. The two minute speech on Loss and Damage which Sarah and I delivered together seemed well received by the demonstrators who numbered about 200. It felt like a positive and worthwhile event, despite being in competition with a rapper, a seller of helium balloons and an extremely professionally presented anti-vaccination group.
