December 8: with DiEM25, against climate change
Wed 12, 2018, Articles
Before the turn of the century, millions of people will be forced to evacuate their homes and migrate to new countries on account of rising water levels.
Meanwhile, reactionary forces around the world are in denial about this impending crisis.
DiEM25 is taking a stand against climate change — beginning with those living in the 10m a.s.l. risk area.
Our idea is to bring together as many people as possible to let them see for themselves the buildings, the homes, and the heritage that will be washed away.
This is our Thin Blue Line.
On December 8th, we will meet under the ramparts of Palazzo Butera, Palermo — the birthplace of the Thin Blue Line, at tremendous risk of rising water levels — where a 10-meter-high blue canvas will be lowered from the “Mura delle Cattive”, right in front of the Gulf of Palermo. But we will not stop in Palermo. DiEM25 invites all communities to take to the streets, spread the word, and promote our message: With DiEM25, against Climate Change.
Together, we can defend our Thin Blue Line.
