People Climate March: 21 Sept 1pm London and elsewhere
The People Climate March at London will take place at 1pm on 21 Sept and a good number of CEL members will be there. – Sunday, September 21, 1:00 pm – 2, Temple Place, London
The Climate Coalition are organising buses from some locations and Avaaz can contribute to costs of buses if groups want to organise their own transport to London. There are other marches happening in Manchester and Edinburgh and smaller events in other locations: Gloucestershire (Sept 21) , Sheffield (Sept 21) Huddersfield (Sept 19), Dudley (21 Sept) etc. Indeed, there are events right round the world. See www.peoplesclimate.org/global This weekend has been chosen because in September, heads of state are going to New York City for a historic summit on climate change.
” Together, we’ll take to the streets to demand the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet. A world safe from the ravages of climate change. A world with good jobs, clean air, and healthy communities for everyone. There is only one ingredient required: to change everything, we need everyone. Join us. – Sept 21st, 1pm Temple Place.
In the meantime we are really keen for all groups, organisations and individuals to get involved, organise actions to coincide and help facilitate a fantastic event. We are particularly interested in making the march as accessible and inclusive as possible and welcome all support.
You can register for the London event here http://act.350.org/event/peoples_climate_attend/7683 or on facebook
An interfaith gathering is being planned to take place before the main London march at Victoria Embankment Gardens at 12-1pm, opposite Temple tube station. There is also an Anglican church service at 11am at St Mary le Strand, very close by.
In the meantime, the organising team are asking for volunteers to help put up posters and fliers about the march. Is anyone able to help? There is a collection point to get publicity materials from Avaaz offices in Farringdon and they can arrange for boxes to be sent to other locations around the country.
Do tell your friends about this. Here is a possible Tweet.
