Dear Comrades in Struggle.
On Saturday 31 March 2012 at 8:30pm,The President Supreme Court, Chief Justice Republic of Kenya. Dr.Willy Mutunga and hundreds of millions of people across the globe will be switching off the lights of its working environment for one hour – Earth Hour, the world’s largest public environmental action. Commencing the hour we will be holding a 12 bout boxing tournament in Muthurwa Market. By taking part in this global ‘lights out’ event Baraza La Taifa will be acknowledging its commitment to operational actions that benefit the planet in the year ahead.
I am proud to work for African Views (Kenya Chapter) http://www.africanviews.org/ & Baraza La Taifa a Social Movement that is showing leadership in solutions to our environmental challenges and will join them in taking part in Earth Hour 2012. I would like to invite you, as a valued colleague, to join me and other staff members of your network in what promises to be an amazing and inspiring global celebration of our collective commitment to the planet.In the lead up to Earth Hour 2012, I plan to take a close look at ways I can waste less and reduce my ecological footprint – both at home and in the workplace – and will share my actions with the world on www.earthhour.org as my personal commitment to go beyond the hour for Earth Hour 2012.
Earth Hour began as a single-city initiative – in Sydney, Australia – in 2007 and has since grown into a global movement with hundreds of millions of people from more than 5,000 cities and towns in 135 countries/territories across every continent switching off their lights for Earth Hour 2011, creating history as the world’s greatest ever environmental action.
Some of the world’s most famous man-made marvels and natural wonders, including China’s Forbidden City, Eiffel Tower, Table Mountain, Great Pyramids of Egypt, Buckingham Palace, Brazil’s Christ the Redeemer statue, Niagara and Victoria Falls, Empire State Building, Sydney Opera House and many more global icons stood in darkness as a powerful symbol of landmark environmental action .Earth Hour 2012 will be even bigger.
It is a global call to action to every individual throughout the world to take responsibility for their environmental impact and join a growing international community who are committed to leading global environmental change. To get a better sense of the magnitude and inspiring nature of the event, please take a moment to watch the Earth Hour 2012 official video at www.youtube.com/earthhour.
I’m excited about Earth Hour 2012, both as a member of Baraza La Taifa Social Movement and as an individual. I hope you will join me and your colleagues in this important global initiative and encourage your family and friends to switch off their lights.http://maps.google.co.ke/maps/place?q=muthurwa+dallas+social+hall&hl=en&cid=12398025235695342459
