November 4th Day of Climate Action: A Huge Success
This letter from Phil to everyone who contributed.
Campaign against Climate Change Thanks ! To everyone who helped make the November 4th National Climate March - and International Day of Climate Protest - a huge success.
Estimated numbers are 20,000 on the march, with another 10,000 in Trafalgar square. This is a fantastic leap forward from our previous Climate March, last December which was itself a huge breakthrough in climate/environmental campaigning.
It was challenging for us in many ways coordinating with new partners in "Stop Climate Chaos" but I think, in the event, our magnificent contribution to the Day spoke for itself, and our grass-rootsy campaigning mention all the hard work that so many of you put in to build this brilliant day !
Meanwhile the global campaign took a huge stride forward with events happening in 40+ countries around the world, around twice the number last time. Reports are still coming in so we've still not got a full picture of everything that happened but in Australia it was absolutely massive with>40,000 in Sydney, 30,000 in Melbourne and maybe 90,000 or so in more than>20 localities all around the country.
