Come rain or shine, heatwave or freeze-over, we'll all be out on the streets for London's hugest ever Climate March on Saturday 3rd December 2005.
Want to join us and save the planet?
We want Contraction and Convergence.
We want Climate Justice.
We want Energy Sense.
We want Renewable Energy.
We want to Stop Climate Chaos.
We want the energy crisis bubble to burst without damaging our lives.
You know, Climate Change poses risks to all of us, rich and poor across
the world, and if we want to leave a habitable planet for all our
children, we have to agree international binding treaties on greenhouse
The biggie is Carbon Dioxide - the major exhaust from burning fossil
fuels - stop burning the planet - turn off lights - do it by hand
instead of machine - install household insulation - build wind farms -
and let's all get out of our cars and walk.
The Climate March starts assembling at 12 noon at Lincoln's Inn Fields, London on Saturday 3rd December 2005, and all are welcome, with banners,
placards and coloured winter scarves.
We will walk as the UN negotiators and scientists talk in Montreal,
trying to carve out a sustainable future from visions, debates and ink
We will walk until our voice is clear.
We will gather for a final rally in the shadow of the United States
Embassy in Grosvenor Square for speeches by major leaders in sustainable
development, environment, faith groups and politics.
Following the rally, there will be Prayers for the Planet in Hinde
Street Methodist Church, London WC1, at 4pm led by Christian groups but
open to all. Bring your prayer shawls, your prayer wheels, your prayer
mats, and wave your coloured winter scarves: we unite in spirit to seek
help for the future.
Wrap up warm: London still gets wintry.
Please come to the march on foot, by bicycle or on public transport. If
you're feeling keen, join the Bike Ride from the Thames Barrier at
9.30am . . . "
