March on Parliament!

March on Parliament for a Zero Carbon Britain
ImageSaturday December 4th

Assemble at Speakers Corner, Hyde Park 12.00 noon.

http://www.campaigncc.org/climatemarch2010
Part of a Global Day of Action on climatewww.globalclimatecampaign.org on the Saturday midway through the UN Climate Talks in Cancun, Mexico.

Challenge the government to take the action we need to meet the climate threat.
The failure of the international Talks in Copenhagen doesn't mean the threat of catastrophic Climate Change has got any less grave or less urgent. Don't let them think last year's big climate demo was just a 'one-off wonder'. Tell them we need urgent action now and take to government a message and vision for a Zero Carbon Britain that won't just stop with this demo but that we can build on afterwards !
And building a Zero Carbon Britain means Climate Jobs Now : we have a positive vision not only for addresing the global threat of climate catastrophe but also for the economic crisis.
