ARCHBISHOP Desmond Tutu has urged South Africans to join world faith leaders, political leaders and music stars on November 27 for the mass rally and afternoon concert from 1 pm at the Kings Park Stadium in Durban. The concert begins at 2 pm.

The Arch, as he is affectionately known, will lead a call to world leaders attending the Cop17 climate-change talks in Durban, calling them to reach a fair and legally ­binding agreement to curb climate change.

The event, called the We Have Faith – Act Now for Climate Justice rally and concert, will see appearances by musicians, including ­Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Yvonne Chaka Chaka, Arno Carstens, rap star HHP and Kenyan Gospel rapper Juliani. The Cop17 talks start in Durban the day after the rally.

Entry to the rally is free. For more information, log on to www.­, follow the campaign on Facebook (We Have Faith – Act Now community) and Twitter (@COP17ActNow).
