At long last, many world leaders are beginning to wake up. They are listening to the scientists. Last month 2700 demonstrations were organised involving hundreds of thousands of people. We have to keep the pressure up. In the run up to the General Election and next year’s international climate negotiations in Paris it is essential that the climate movement keeps up, indeed gathers, momentum.
Derby Climate Coalition is inviting all the organisations in Derby that care about climate change to come and say a few words about what they are doing, and how we can act together.
Derby Trades Council, Unite Community Branch, Justice and Peace and the WDM have already agreed to support the event. Other voluntary and campaigning groups are also saying they want to take part.
Climate activist Danni Pafford will speak about the growing number of institutions divesting from fossil fuels. (She was one of 21 activists who occupied the gas-fired power plants at West Burton Power Station for a week in October 2012.The energy company EDF was forced to drop their £5m civil lawsuit against the group).
The evening will have a good balance of input with video clips as well as time to network. Refreshments will be available.
