Get key recommendations from the Bolivian Summit into the UN's negotiating text on climate change

Maggie Zhou, of Mass. Coalition for Healthy Communities, sends the following request:
Below is a link to an online action launched by Friends of the Earth that we urgently need  people to take as part of the pressure we are exerting on the Chair of the Ad hoc Working Group on Longterm Cooperative Action (AWG-LCA) (at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change negotiations) in Bonn so that the key recommendations of the Bolivian Summit (World People's Conference on Climate Change and Mother Earth's Rights) are included in the draft negotiating text.  At present the text overwhelmingly reflects the weak and ineffectual Copenhagn Accord imposed by a small number of major powers through illegitimate process last December, which will commit the world to climate disaster.

Read more and sign the statement here.

We need to ensure that all options are reflected in the text so that there is an option for more ambitious action to be agreed. This action is critical, please forward to all your contacts.
