As per my blog the other day, Reading today saw a flashbob. A group of people from various backgrounds held a "wake-up call" pressing our leaders to take urgent action on climate change.

Rob calling Gordon Brown
http://www.avaaz.org/en/sept21_hub/ has phone numbers to call:
Here are the numbers to call in your country (Please start calling after 12.18pm Monday local time):
Prime Minister Gordon Brown
(+44) 020 8144 7459 / 0300 060 4000
Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change Ed Miliband

(+44) (0)20 7215 5000 or (0)20 7215 6740 (Minicom)
Please make at least one call, and if you don’t get through, it’s probably because we’re jamming the phone-lines and it’s working — so just keep trying throughout the day, or switch to another number!
We suggest you say you’re calling as part of an international action called the Global Wake-Up call, asking leaders to commit to go to the Copenhagen climate meeting in December and agree on a global climate deal that is FAIR, AMBITIOUS and BINDING (“FAB”), and ask them to register your call and convey the message to the decision-maker.
