Sunday Song - Karine Polwart
Happy New Year.
The first decade of the 21st Century was meant to be a time of hope, change and new things. Instead it was destroyed by greed, hate and warfare.
Maybe, now the global party has ended, and we have all awoken with a financial hangover, we will all consider more what we spend our money on.
This weeks Sunday Song was written by Karine Polwart as a response to Britain's continuing investment in the development of a nuclear weapons system.
2010 sees many key events. Global follow-up to COP15 (Copenhagen climate conference) in February, Discussions about a nuclear free world at the Non Proliferation Treaty Renewal Conference in April and a General Election...well sometime before June. These all provide key moments for the world to put its money where its mouth is and invest in a better, greener and more peaceful world.
What part will you play?
Take Care Y'All
