Eco: Time to Act – National Climate March – London (7th March 2015)

This is the 2nd big event of this type in London.  The first one took place on 21st September 2014 (last year), which I joined with a number of friends..(and met ever more numbers of other friends along the way).

The People’s Climate March last September was huge. With around 40,000 people marching in London, 400,000 in New York and many thousands more taking part across the world, together we made history.

2015 needs to be even bigger. The climate talks in Paris this December are crucial if we’re going to protect all that we love. Our movement is growing, and we’re more diverse and determined than ever before.

Across the UK people are already building change – from divestment of funds which prop up the fossil fuel industry, to front-line communities fighting unsustainable energy extraction and fracking, through to those paving the way for a transition towards a 100% renewable energy future which would bring about an estimated one million new climate jobs in the UK alone.

As with the People’s Climate March, individuals and groups have set up ‘blocs’ on the march – a chance to join with others who are passionate about particular issues related to climate change. See below for a list of blocs (not exhaustive!)

And visit www.timetoact2015.org to find out more about how you can get involved, including details about coaches from around the countryhttp://bit.ly/18YKYU6

Join us on March 7 to bring a message of urgency which cannot be ignored.

And together let’s continue to power up and celebrate our movement – locally, nationally and internationally – throughout 2015, and beyond.
