National climate march, December 8th

Next month the UN will meet in Bali, Indonesia, for the next round of climate talks. To coincide with the talks, demonstrations will be held across the world, calling for action, and demanding that industrialised countries recognise their greater responsibility in dealing with climate change.

Everything you need to know for the UK demonstration in London is on the Campaign Against Climate Change site, and for worldwide details check out Global Climate Campaign. There will be coordinated demos in 79 countries.

In London, meet at Millbank at 12:00, south of Parliament Square, nearest tube Westminster. The march will end at the US Embassy, and speakers include Chris Huhne MP, former environment minister Michael Meacher MP, George Monbiot, and Zac Goldsmith of Ecologist magazine.

A cycle protest will meet at 10:00 at Lincoln’s Inn Fields in Holborn.
