To mark the UN Climate Change talks taking place in Bali this December, a series of demonstrations will be taking place across the globe on Saturday 8th December to call on urgent action from world leaders.
The London leg of the National Climate March - Global Day of Action will kick off with a cycle protest, leaving from Lincoln’s Inn Fields in Holborn at 10am. Cyclists will ride to Westminster via two stop-off points for speeches en route.
Elsewhere, following a service of worship at St Matthews Church SW1 at 11am, protestors will assemble at midday at Millbank by the Houses of Parliament (nearest Underground: Westminster), before marching two and a half miles to the US Embassy in Grosvenor Square (nearest Underground: Bond Street).
At 2.30pm a rally will be held in the square, with speeches from the among others Liberal Democrat Shadow Environment Secretary Chris Huhne, former Labour environment minister Michael Meacher, Green Party MEP Caroline Lucas, Ecologist editor Zac Goldsmith and author, campaigner and journalist George Monbiot.
To round the day off an after-party and fundraiser will be held at the Synergy Centre, Farmers Road, in Camberwell (neartest Underground: Oval). The evening's entertainment will feature music from Seize the Day among others. Limited floor space will be available for an overnight stay at the Synergy Centre.
