Climate change protesters march through Glasgow

Yesterday was the International Day of Action on Climate Change and i was out marching in Glasgow as people all over the world pushed for urgent action to curb emissions. The march was in wet and cold conditions so we where glad to make the news (Video, Article).

We, and others around the world where marching to support the following call to action:

"We demand that world leaders take the urgent and resolute action that is needed to prevent the catastrophic destabilisation of global climate, so that the entire world can move as rapidly as possible to a stronger emissions reductions treaty which is both equitable and effective in preventing dangerous climate change.

We also demand that the long-industrialised countries that have emitted most greenhouse gases up to now take most of the responsibility for the adaptive measures that have to be taken, especially by low-emitting countries with limited economic resources."

Glasgow climate march was organised to coincide with the global day of action on climate change; an effort to inject some urgency into the Bali climate talks.
