Simon Hughes addresses demo

Just when we need a huge expansion in renewable energy they are closing down one of the two wind turbine factories in the UK. The government has spent billions bailing out the banks, and £2.3 billion in loan guarantees to support the UK car industry – they can and should step in to save the infrastructure we are really going to need to save us from climate catastrophe.

Demo was on the Department of Energy and Climate Change, No. 3 Whitehall Place (off Whitehall, Charing Cross tube). Save Vestas blog. New petition.


Join the iceberg at the G20 !

“Climate Emergency” Ice-berg Demo outside the Excel Centre (Royal Victoria stop on Docklands railway from Bank) where the G20 are meeting the following day.

An event for “Fossil Fools day” April 1st from 12.30 pm. to 7.30 pm. (evening rally 6.30 pm) We will have a giant ice block. Bring your own (smaller) ice blocks (you can thread them on string as a necklace or bandolier) and dress in white !

Polar ice is melting much faster then scientists thought. We are losing the race against climate catastrophe (see here). Help us produce a visual image of the need for urgent action from the G20, outside the Excel centre on the eve of the G20 summit.

Join us with our globe-in-a-greenhouse on wheels to put across the message that we need urgent action for the Climate Emergency. The G20 could begin to shape the outcome from the Copenhagen Talks (see more here). We need to make sure that real action on climate change is high on the agenda.
