Elders Letter on Copenhagen - Action Dec 12

Elders Letter on Copenhagen.

The Elders are a group of eminent global leaders brought together by Nelson Mandela and also the initiators of the Every Human Has Rights campaign. Brought together by Nelson Mandela, they include Kofi Annan, Gro Harlem Brundtland, Jimmy Carter, Mary Robinson and Desmond Tutu. In an inspiring personal letter, The Elders have urged 192 world leaders to attend the Copenhagen climate talks in person and to reach a fair, ambitious, effective and binding agreement to reduce emissions and build a low-carbon, and sustainable future for us all. They are planning a vigil at the conference.

You may wish to quote parts of their letter in your own actions.
