Climate Campaigning in Scotland

It's been quite a productive few days here in Aberdeenshire, although it has to be said, not as glamarous as what 'Honey' is getting up to in India. At our last meeting in Aberdeen we had quite a broad ranging discussion of our plans for the next few months. In perticular we are starting up the Critical Mass again, initially on the rising tide day of action against the Royal Bank of Scotland (which calls itself the oil and gas bank). We also decided to find out more about a joint meeting proposed by several groups and brought to us by Christian Aid. We are keen to help groups lobby local mp's about making the climate bill as strong as possible. Finally, the situation at Aberdeen university seems very interesting, due largely to attempts by a member of shared planet to bring all environmental and ethical organisations together for a joint meeting on Sep 29th; this is a very exciting prospect. There was a good deal of future work to come out of that meeting, but more on that can be read on our website.

Apart from the groups activities in Aberdeen we have also been busy fundraising for the office in London: the base of the Global Climate Campaign . We just had a fundraising event at my parents t-room  and raised nearly 850 pounds. I was very pleased with that...we had a very busy day and quite a few generous customers. Now we have to think bigger and see what else we can do...suggestions for big fundraising idead welcome! In the meantime you can donate here.
