Bellingham candlelight vigil to mourn typhoon victims

THE BELLINGHAM HERALDNovember 20, 2013 

BELLINGHAM - People who would like to stand in solidarity with the victims of the typhoon that ravaged parts of the Philippines earlier this month can participate in a candlelight vigil downtown Thursday evening, Nov. 21.

The vigil will take place from 5 to 6 p.m. in front of City Hall, 210 Lottie St.

The vigil is intended to show support for victims of Typhoon Haiyan, which tore through the Philippines Nov. 8 and displaced millions of people. Organizers also hope the event will serve as a call for climate justice. The vigil is being put on by 350Bellingham, the local branch of 350.org, which focuses on grassroots climate solutions.
