350.org Rise for Climate (Victoria Rise and Resist) 8 Sept 2018 outside BC Legislature; one of 877 events in 93 countries. OFS Little Portion Fraternity, Victoria, BC members: Mary Anne Gervais, Josée Contorines and Andrew Conradi.
We're rising because we know what needs to happen: we need every local leader to commit to a fast and fair transition to 100% renewable energy and to stop new fossil fuel projects. And no more delays. Pope Francis in his 2015 Laudato Si’ (n 165) wrote: “We know that technology based on the use of highly polluting fossil fuels – especially coal, but also oil and, to a lesser degree, gas – needs to be progressively replaced without delay.”
Pope Francis in his message for the 2018 World Day of Prayer for The Care of Creation mentions “a growing sense of the need for a renewed and sound relationship between humanity and creation” and wants to “draw attention to the question of water.” He says “access to safe drinkable water is a basic and universal human right ... every privatization … , at the expense of the human right to have access …, is unacceptable.” Church bulletin article prepared by Andrew Conradi.
