London: ecumenical service and rally against climate change
Comment Email Print

Christians of all denominations will pray together at a special service in Hinde Street church, Westminster at 11.30am. on 6 December before joining the national march against Climate Change. Campaigners plan to walk to Parliament from Hyde Park, to demand that the government acts on climate now.

The march has four main themes -

1) NO to a 3rd runway at Heathrow and the runaway expansion in aviation expansion.
2) NO new coal - no new coal-fired power stations as planned at eg Kingsnorth in Kent
3) NO to the expansion of agrofuels - with negative impacts on forests, the climate and world food supply.
4) YES to a renewable energy revolution and green jobs - a "Green new Deal"

The day is part of a Global Day of Action. For more information see:
