Climate emergency vigil, night of 15-16 May, London and Derby

Campaign Against Climate Change events this weekend:


Overnight, Saturday to Sunday 15th-16th May, outside Parliament Candlelit Procession down Whitehall – assemble 11.00pm outside St Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square.

Put Climate Change back into politics – take the message to the new government that dealing with the climate crisis needs to be their top priority. Light a candle for scientific realism and rationality against the dark, populist, tide of sceptic lies and ignorance. Let them know straightaway that the cuts we need are emissions cuts, not jobs cuts – and we need to start the work of building a zero carbon Britain straightaway.

11.00 pm Assemble outside St Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square. Service inside the church from 11.00 pm organised by Christian Ecology Link.

We also have nearby toilet facilities provided by the Salvation Army.
