Press release on Climate Change March

Press Release – Climate Change March.

Members of the Sutton and Croydon Green Party joined thousands of others in the biggest climate change rally in the UK on 4th November. Local Greens joined other campaigners outside the US Embassy to listen to speakers, including Green MEP Dr Caroline Lucus. She commented that: “Failure to act to tackle climate change is costing lives – and threatens the
very future of human civilisation as we know it”.

Campaigners carrying banners and placards then marched from the US Embassy to Trafalgar Square, where they joined thousands of others who had congregated for more speeches and a concert. Performers included Razorlight and KT Tunstall.
Local spokesperson Shasha Khan said, “The Stern report has made it clearer than ever that we need urgent global action if we are to prevent the worst impacts of devastating climate change. All around the world national governments are spending too much time highlighting the failings of other national governments in combating global warming. What we need is governments, national and local, to become part of the solution and not part of the problem.”
