> What: action to launch solidarity fast. Silent sitting + speakers
> Where: Outside the Cafeteria in C-Section
> It's at level 0, zone C, outside the cafeteria, so on the opposite side from the entrance to the venue.
> You go here either by walking thru the stadium on level 0, or by going around on the floors above or underneath, and then taking the stairs or the elevator down.
> When: 1-3pm
> Who: 25 people who are fasting will sit on the floor silently. Everyone else come and stand around to support. Yeb and Lidy will be speaking.
> We will have placards with the names of the Filipino provinces that got hit, as well as the death toll and solidarity messages.
> Key messages: this is a "voluntary fast," not a hunger strike. For the media, we say that we are fasting during COP hours, for the next two weeks. This is about the Filipino movement and the current impacted people. Let's keep our messages grounded in that. The fasting is secondary.
> NOTE: This action is less about the fast and more about Yeb and Lidy and the Filipino movement.
> Some context for this action: Last year in Doha when the Philippines was being ravaged by Bopha, a small group of justice-focused youth groups, including Earth in Brackets, PUSH Europe, and Young Friends of the Earth launched a series of solidarity actions focusing on the Philippines. In this last year, that same group of young people has continued to support Filipino movements through grassroots campaigns to transform dirty energy systems into renewable community energy. Through the Global Campaign to Demand Climate Justice and the Reclaim Power campaign (www.reclaimpower.net), we have kept the Philippines in our minds and hearts for over a year.
> Today, we bring all the passion and energy of the last year into an action that will express true solidarity with the Filipino delegation.
> circulate through your lists. Can someone forward to CAN?
