As the climate talks in Copenhagen reach their climax, the time has come to add a new element to the political pressure and intellectual arguments: Moral force.

Leaders arriving in Copenhagen have heard all the debates before. They now face a decision about whether to do what is simply morally right.

Thousands of young people in Copenhagen will be fasting - abstaining from food and drinking only water - on Thursday--inspired by three who have fasted (under appropriate medical supervision) for 42 days.

By joining the fast, and communicating its message to politicians and our communities, we can send a signal that we as humanity are united across borders, and ready for change - rising above short-sighted interests for a fair and just world for all.

Join us for a Global Day of Fasting (not eating) and Reflection on Solving the Climate Crisis!

A crew of San Francisco Climate Justice Fast solidarity fasters will be wandering the city searching for climate justice & asking city goers to reflect upon "What will you do to solve the climate crisis and allow future generations to survive?"

Find out WHERE IN THE CITY IS the Climate Justice Fast by following ecoTINAberry on Twitter.

If you would like to join our search for Climate Justice, meet us at the 16th and Mission Bart Station at noon wearing black. Look for the Climate Justice Fast face logo banner!
