‘Rise for Climate’ Action day, Saturday 8th September 2018

The climate crisis is rapidly becoming a climate emergency and it’s time our leaders took the strongest action (watch David Spratt’s 2014 talk for more on this, download his latest 2018 report “What Lies Beneath”)

On 8th September, from 11am, groups from Cambridge, including Cambridge Carbon Footprint, Fossil Free Cambs, Zero Carbon Cambridge, Friends of the Earth and Cambridge Conservation Forum are holding a day of action on the market square.

They will be asking people to sign petitions calling for divestment from fossil fuels for the university and the county council, and encouraging people to write to their MP calling for an end to fracking in the UK.

There will be a big performance at 1.30pm, speeches, and a march later.  The event will finish around 3pm.  Do try to attend, even if for a short while, and spread the word.

This is part of a global event, initiated by 350.org.  See the main website: https://riseforclimate.org/
