Ray of Solidarity

12 November 2013

Special recognition, the Ray of the Solidarity, goes to the Philippines. The lead negotiator called for urgent action to prevent a repeat of the devastating storm that hit parts of his country this past weekend. Super Typhoon Haiyan was nothing the world has ever experienced.  

His speech thanked civil society, especially those who are risking their lives climbing oil rigs in the arctic, trying to stop the building of new oil pipelines, or any direct action against the dirty fossil fuel industry.

To this we say, civil society has never felt the urgency of action as much as now. We stand in solidarity with the Philippines and all other nations that were hit by this devastation, and urge the international community to act more strongly than ever before to reduce the threat of climate change and push towards a new, globally-binding agreement at COP19.
