As a friend of mine is currently among those camped in Parliament Square (London) and has asked me to spread awareness however I can, I’d like blow his trumpet here if I may. After all, spreading awareness is something of a Buddhist speciality.
The protesters are campaigning for, among other things, a state of Climate Emergency to be declared in the UK, which would allow more funds to be directed into renewables and so on. They are not planning to cease disruptions until the government has taken real action.
Michael Gove (our environmental secretary) has said, “We’ve got the message,” but more than lip service is required. We have precious few years to save the planet from mass extinction of species and catastrophic warming.
Let’s do what we can in our own lives, let’s vote for positive changes, and let’s keep discussing these issues.
Thanks for your time, friends.
Metta for Mother Earth ❤️
