Candlelit Vigil for Philippines


When: Tuesday 6pm
Where: De La Guerra Plaza then silent walk to harbor
Bring: Candles and signs if possible

Join us as we gather in memory of the thousands dead and millions displaced by Typhoon Haiyan. We will gather at De La Guerra Plaza then walk silently with candles down State Street then to the harbor holding signs calling attention to the need for drastic, international climate action.

Superstorm Haiyan is a climate nightmare — carbon pollution is driving more frequent and intense storms which are devastating vulnerable communities. New realities require new politics, I urge you to stop the sad tradition of feet-dragging on commitments to cut pollution, and breaking promises on finance.” — Yeb Sano, Climate Commissioner for the Philippines addressing leaders at the Warsaw COP19 UN Climate Talks last week
