Save Copenhagen – Real Deal Now!

With three days to go, the crucial Copenhagen summit is failing.

Tomorrow, the world’s leaders arrive for an unprecedented 60 hours of direct negotiations. Experts agree that without a tidal wave of public pressure for a deal, the summit will not stop catastrophic global warming of 2 degrees.

Click below to sign the petition for a real deal in Copenhagen — the campaign already has a staggering 10 million supporters – let’s make it the largest petition in history in the next 72 hours! Every single name is actually being read out at the summit — sign on at the link below and forward this email to everyone!

An Avaaz team is meeting daily with negotiators inside the summit who will organize a spectacular petition delivery to world leaders as they arrive, building a giant wall of boxes of names and reading out the names of every person who signs. With the largest petition in history, leaders will have no doubt that the whole world is watching.

    UPDATE FROM AVAAZ:

    Dear friends,

    Wow. Yesterday, the media was calling the crucial Copenhagen climate summit dead on arrival.

    But 24 hours later, after millions of petition signatures, hundreds of thousands of phone calls, and a massive outcry across the planet, a deal could be back on!

    Leaders are frantically doing in hours what they’ve failed to do for years, but we’re still far from a pact that will stop catastrophic global warming of 2 degrees — and the talks could still collapse. We know our pressure is working, let’s use these crucial final hours to ramp it up, and get a real deal, not a dressed-up weak agreement. Sign the staggering 13 million person petition below if you haven’t yet, and forward this email to everyone:

    The petition has become the centre of the global revolt against failure in Copenhagen. The names of petition signers are being read out by young people who have taken over spaces in the Copenhagen summit and in governments round the world, including the US State Department and the Canadian Prime Minister’s office.

    Amazingly, leaders themselves are appealing to the public for action. UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown made an impassioned appeal to 3000 Avaaz members on a global conference call on Wednesday, calling for an historic 48 hour internet based campaign from citizens around the world, calling our impact crucial. Nobel laureate Desmond Tutu also appealed to the world at one of 3000 vigils organized by our movement, proclaiming “We marched in South Africa and apartheid fell, we marched in Berlin and the wall fell, we marched on Copenhagen and we WILL get a real deal”.

    History is being made in Copenhagen, but so far, it’s not being made by leaders, but by us, millions of people round the world who are directly engaging, hour by hour, like never before, in the fight to save our planet. The pressure is working, let’s ramp it up.

    With hope and determination,

    Ricken, Alice, Iain, Ben, Paul, Luis, Graziela, Benjamin, Pascal, Veronique, Paula and the whole Avaaz team.

    Amazing stuff!!! I got an email from Gordon Brown saying i should give him a call to chat about climate change…wonder if it would have been an automated message…cant quite gets those ronds together for a long distance call.
    I wonder how many people have to take a stand before something is done..?
