NATIONAL MARCH FOR GLOBAL CLIMATE JUSTICE
Organsied by the Campaign against Climate Change
Date: Sat Nov 4th 2006
Meeting Point: US Embassy, Grosvenor Square (near Bond St tube)
Speakers: George Monbiot, Michael Meacher MP, Caroline Lucas MEP, Norman Baker MP & Zac Goldsmith.
If climate change is the biggest threat facing humanity... then what are we going to do about it? With our given responsibility as khilafah (guardians) on this fragile, yet beautiful planet that we inhabit and upon which we depend for our existence, individual action on climate change is essential. At the same time on Sat November 4th there is an opportunity to join hands for collective mass action. Bring your friends, your family and your colleagues, lets gather in our tens of thousands... and let's march together demanding an end to climate injustice.
In Feb 2005, there were one thousand people at the national climate demonstration in London; In Dec 2005, there were ten thousand; Sat Nov 4th 2006 promises to be even bigger..
This promises to be the biggest ever climate demonstration to take place in the UK , and is part of a series of demonstrations taking place throughout the world. Make sure you're a part of it. With just a small window of opportunity in which to prevent catastrophic runaway climate change, there is no choice but to act now. Tomorrow will be too late. Join the swelling tide of people all round the world demanding urgent action on climate.

LINE CLIMATE MEETING POINT : This Saturday if you'd like to link up with LINE members at the climate march, there are two options.. You can either
1) Join LINE at their first meeting point early, chat with them and help them out putting together their placards if the impulse so arises. They're a nice bunch, and if you are lucky they may even offer you some of their organic masala chai and other goodies.
LINE Meeting point : Corner of Grosvenor Square and South Audley street, on the pavement beside the Kashmiri shop. LINE Meeting time: 10.30am (Please arrive within a few minutes of this time!)
2) You can look out for the LINE banner, placards and stall anytime after 11am, at their second meeting point. We cannot give a set place for this right now, as this will depend on police restrictions on the day, which will no doubt especially kick in at this march, given that the starting point and the US embassy aren't that far apart! So look out for the LINE logo on our banner/placards etc or ask around if you're still unable to find us. The earlier you arrive before the big crowds get there, the easier it'll be. Either way, good luck and we hope to see you there!
