Southampton climate demonstration

Event Hosted By Jenny
‹‹ Clean energy will help us to have a stable climate, clean air to breathe, and where we can have an independent source of energy rather than needing to rely on oil from Russia or the Middle East.
We have already started to experience the effects of climate change, having more extreme weather in this country, droughts abroad so people can't grow enough food to feed themselves. Extreme weather conditions can destabilise countries, causing humanitarian crises. Sea level rises are threatening to submerge small island states.
I believe that we need to do something to prevent this situation. We need to show that we care about this and we want the people in power to make decisions that will improve our future and that of our children. ››
The Global Climate March
We had a choir singing climate-related songs, a ukulele band, free books, edible food diverted from landfill to give away, a solar panel, banners and a great, positive atmosphere of what we can achieve!
What will happen at the event?
It's going to be fun and entertaining! Please bring along banners, bikes, fancy dress, and anything else you think will add to the atmosphere, including as many friends as you can! Please send me a message via Avaaz if you can volunteer or have any ideas how we can make this event as inspiring and fun as possible.

We'll be in Guildhall Square from 1pm.
The last protest (in August 2014) attracted 200 people with just 2 weeks' notice, over 2000 people in Southampton signed the accompanying petition, and over 675,000 people marched worldwide. Lots of people and organisations took part to make it a fantastic day. Let's make this one even bigger and better! Put the word out to anyone you think might be interested!
See you there!
This event is part of the Global Climate March. On November 30th, world leaders meet in Paris to start negotiating the next global climate deal. That’s why, the day before, people around the world will take to the streets and push leaders at every level of government to commit to 100% clean energy. Together, we can push the world towards a climate deal that gets us off dirty energy and unleashes clean energy for all. Let's make history -- RSVP on the right for this Global Climate March event!
