Candle light vigil in solidarity with the victims of climate change and the UNFCCC’s false solutions


The International Peasant’s Movement La Via Campesina invites the media to a candle light vigil and symbolic action tomorrow 10 December 2009 at 6pm at Gammeltorv – Nytorv (Copenhagen city center).

Farmers from around the world are affected by climate change – droughts and floods are destroying their land and crops . But these farmers are also extremely seriously affected by the false solutions currently negotiated at the UNFCCC: carbon trading, land evictions in the name of REDD (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation), agrofuels, climate-ready genetically modified seeds…

Peasants and small farmers from Asia, Africa, America and Europe will light candles and stage a symbolic action to kick off their mobilizations in Copenhagen.
