Chart topping Norwegian songstress, Susanne Sundfor, who broke through the Nordic musical “glass ceiling” this year with the magnificent Ten Love Songs, has announced that she will join the “Folkets klimamarsj”, or, Global Climate March, in Oslo next weekend.

The march will kick off at 1pm UTC on Saturday 28th November from the Jernbanetorget public square in Oslo.  The aim is to get as large a turnout as possible to publicise Norwegian solidarity against environmental destruction and climate change, in advance of the Climate Summit, due to be held in Paris the following week.  This summit  will see world leaders meet to agree on a climate strategy.

There will be an array of colourful music and dancing,  as well as participation from a variety of organisations championing the protection of our natural environment.  The organisers hope that the people of Oslo and beyond, will join together to show the world how firmly they stand behind “climate justice.”

Here is the statement posted to Facebook by Sundfor earlier today:

“Climate change is something that has worried me since childhood and I think it’s time we start opening our eyes and try to find ways to take care of what we still have. The most efficient way to do this is to let politicians know we are not happy with their efforts and that we wont stop telling them until we are. Show them we are unhappy by joining me in Oslo on November 28th”  http://on.fb.me/1HbaFko
