This Earth Hour 2011: 8.30pm, Saturday 26 March, celebrate your action for the planet with the people of world, and add more to your Earth Hour.
From its inception as a single-city initiative — Sydney, Australia – in 2007, Earth Hour has grown into a global symbol of hope and movement for change. Earth Hour 2010 created history as the world’s largest ever voluntary action with people, businesses and governments in 128 countries across every continent coming together to celebrate an unambiguous commitment to the one thing that unites us all — the planet.
I’ve already done that, or at least it was done for me. “Earth Hour” in Gaza is something we experience on daily basis. Not a one hour, not two hours, but six and sometimes extends to twelve hours spent without electricity. The global event is very beautiful in the sense that millions across the world are united for one cause.
But in the same time, if you are taking part in this event, remember that in Gaza:
