Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu has urged South Africans to join world faith leaders, political leaders and music stars at an “extraordinary” mass rally and concert at Durban’s King’s Park Stadium on the eve of the COP17 climate change summit.

The archbishop is to host the We Have Faith – Act Now for Climate Justice rally and concert on November 27. At the event he will lead a call to world leaders attending COP17 to reach a fair and legally binding agreement to curb climate change.
