LONDON , SATURDAY 6 DECEMBER MARCH, "VERY CRITICAL MASS" CYCLIST ACTIONS ETC
to coincide with the preparatory UN meeting for the Copenhagen "WHAT NEXT AFTER "KYOTO" RUNS OUT" big, globally crucial "once-in-ten-years" ( but-we-mightnt-get-a-next-ten-years ) time when the worlds signatories to Kyoto prepare the documents etc for Copenhagen itself.
( after the USAs election, post-campaign but prior to the actual inauguration, is also when diplomats etc "reset their clocks/ mental images of the world " . . . when a heck of a lot of people, imagination, etc on the streets could have a seriously useful effect . . . hence worth thinking about doing a little bit at the moment to put a mention of it into that mailout, onto the website calendar, putting it onto the Womens Institute meetings agenda - or yours !
After the marches to compliment the climate camp at Kingsnorth, involvement with Heathrow, etc, sub-themes are coal, airports - but also the self-defeating effects of deforestation-for-biofuel. . . . briefing sheets out in weeks, with a good straightforward background to quite HOW crucial that meeting is - but also QUITE how much we need to SERIOUSLY step up our game, as a "sentient" species, world, etc if we are going to avert the terminal global climate turbulence disaster we are aimed at.
( the new Mcguire "Seven Years" book - reviewed - favourably - in the opening page editorial (!) of the current issue of "Green Events" sums up the actual situation - but for a one paragraph "digest" you could check out that editorial itself - www.greenevents.co.uk )
"Speakers" bit already looks more interesting . . . it seems quite possible that the Libdems leadership is up for speaking at the march - of course, with more radical speakers,
perhaps also a variety of informational entertainment ( i just made that phrase up - sounds good - but we are totally against the USUAL idea of "bore-you-stupid" lengthy re-statements-of-what-we-all-knew-thats-why-we-came speeches,)
but also scientists, ("establishment" experts agree with what we are trying to get across, these days (except for that tiny minority that wittingly or unwittingly seem in the pockets of certain vested interests with fast-flowing gravy-trains but attitudes that remind you of some Flat-Earthist Inquisition ) ( we have three key objections to reality .... errm, four.... etc )
etc. probably a juggler
stage magic ????
. . . look, its early days yet - get in touch!
