Thank you to the 8,000 people who took to the streets of Glasgow on Saturday 5th December to demand urgent action on climate change.
Ahead of the UN climate change negotiations in Copenhagen, the march was organised by Stop Climate Chaos Scotland to call on our political leaders to secure an international deal that prevents runaway climate change.
Mike Robinson, Chair of Stop Climate Chaos Scotland said:
I am delighted so many people braved the December weather to take a stand against climate change. Scotland has the strongest climate legislation in the world and the turn out today shows why – people care. Leaders meeting in Copenhagen over the next two weeks should be in no doubt, the eyes of the world are on them and we must see the western world in particular, setting the scale and immediacy of targets we know we need to prevent runaway climate change.
On Saturday 5 December 2009, ahead of the crucial UN climate summit in Copenhagen, tens of thousands of people from all walks of life will march through the streets of London to demonstrate their support for a safe climate future for all.
More than 50,000 people came together to demand action on climate change on Saturday 5th Dec at The Wave, the biggest climate change march in the world ever! We called for the Government to take much more urgent and effective action on climate change.
