Approximately 70 people gathered in the downtown. Carrying lights,
noisemakers, an earth flag, and a 350 banner we walked along both sides of
the main street to our Millennium Park. The crowd listened in total
silence as we gathered to hear the speech by the President of the Maldives.
We were then led in an exercise of gathering and scribing ideas for
decreasing our carbon footprint...actions that anyone of us could take.
With our local doctor / photographer high above us in the town crane, we
posed for photos...including one in the 350 shape. Considering the
snowfalls of the week reaching, in some cases, one meter, our turnout for
this most important vigil was spectacular. Check out our facebook page '350
Bancroft' for a stunning video. Thank you 350.org for allowing us this
opportunity to have our hopes and dreams communicated to the world's leaders
