Fossil Fools Day 1 April 2009

Polar ice is shrinking fast – while world leaders do nothing……

A "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. (map for demo location at www.campaigncc.org soon)

An event for "Fossil Fools Day" April 1st .

12.00 pm. to 7.30 pm : evening rally 6.00 – 7.30 pm, lunchtime photo-op 1.00 pm

Campaign against Climate Change 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 (we will have a limited number of white overalls) ! This is a legal demo organized with the police so the vast swarms of cops and security armed to the teeth should leave us alone !

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

Theres also a 'Yes We Can' demonstration this Wednesday.

This is the only anti-war demonstration at the G20. It is the main chance we
have to make sure that the G20 leaders can't avoid the massive opposition to
their war policies.

The demonstration will assemble at the US Embassy, Grosvenor Sq, London W1A
2LQ. Nearest tubes Green Park or Bond Street.

We will hand in a message to Barack Obama and then march through central London
to Trafalgar Square for an alternative summit.

Speakers include Arthur Scargill, Tony benn, Susan George, Lindsey German,
Bruce Kent and Daud Abdullah.

Barack Obama has just announced a surge of 23,000 extra troops for Afghanistan. The British government looks set to send another 2,000.
