There are moments in history when the very act of people coming together can force change. Sunday 29th November, the People’s Climate March, could be one of those moments.
In just over three weeks’ time world leaders are coming together for the biggest climate meeting of the decade – the Climate Summit in Paris. The day before they meet, people across the globe will take to the streets. It’ll be the biggest climate march in history – aimed at convincing politicians to do what’s needed.
It’s a huge task to drown out the lobbying power of the super-rich dirty coal and oil industries. Which means thousands need to hit the streets. Will you join too ?
Transition members have a strong track record of coming together to protect our environment. We’ve been fighting battles one by one. But this is a huge global moment and all concerned citizens need to come together. This global march is one such moment.
Please come and join the Newcastle march. Here are the details :
