Candlelit vigil for Copenhagen

A bit late to report this but several members of J-CAN (Jersey Climate Action Network, including me, were at this vigil outside St Helier’s Town Hall on December 12th. It was organised by Maria Barnicoat.  This photo of her taken from the JEP article – copyright acknowledged.

We all turned up on a windy night (not ideal for candles!) for Jersey’s version of several thousand similar events around the world co-ordinated by Avaaz (see Around 50 people (including children) were there on a cold evening, but the communal spirit was warm. Our congratulations go to Maria for organising the event.


Here's a link to the Jersey Evening Post's article trailing the event. It's worth looking at the comments section for the wall to wall numbers of useful idiots who've been suckered by the denialist propaganda and regurgitate it like good little clones.
