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 remember building a Zero Carbon Britain means Climate Jobs Now: we have a positive vision not only for addressing the global threat of climate catastrophe but also for the economic crisis.
March with us for…
Climate Action and Climate Justice….
