at our August 16th meeting it was agreed that ICJC will work on a “divestment-reinvestment” campaign. We also agreed that we would begin a puppet-making venture—at the recent Peoples’ Climate March, large puppets, many carried by representatives of the religious community, were the most captivating part of the event.
