As part of XR September rebellion, Christian Climate Action, XR Buddhists and
Muslims for XR, from Wales and the South West of England, are holding a peaceful,
silent Vigil for our sacred Earth, at the Senedd Building in Cardiff.
The Vigil is open to people of all faiths and meditators. The vigil will be taking place between 10am and 6pm from Tuesday 1st September to Friday 4th. We will be wearing masks and social distancing will be observed.
We will be holding the people and the planet in our hearts and praying for humanity
to have the wisdom and strength to survive the climate emergency. In concert with
others praying outside Westminster, we are praying for the transformation of our
politics to create a post-carbon world of justice and peace.
With this in mind, we are asking Members of Parliament to support a new Climate
and Ecological Emergency Bill. The Bill demands the UK government act with emergency measures and that it be put before Parliament. The Bill, if passed, would substantially amend the Climate Change Act 2008, tightening the framework and accelerating the speed in which the UK has to act. We have also written to our Assembly Member representatives at the Senedd demanding they promote this Bill and adopt its precepts in Wales. We have of course offered an invitation to our representatives to join us in the Vigil.
This is a peaceful, non-violent, and prayerful event organised by Faith Bridge Cymru (a name given for a collective group of faith group connected to Extinction Rebellion), and open to all faiths and spiritual perspectives.
