Dear Friends:

Please join us for the Climate Justice Summit being held in the Hague on
Sunday, November 19 and Monday, November 20.  The Summit will highlight the
human impacts of climate change and provide a platform for communities
engaged in struggles against the major climate culprits- the fossil fuel

The Climate Justice Summit will also feature speakers that expose the role
of corporations and globalization in promoting climate change and false
solutions.  And finally we will hear about moving beyond fossil fuels and
towards Climate Justice.

Dr. Owens Wiwa will be delivering a keynote address.

In addition to speakers, workshops will be offered on both days.
