Time To Act TO PARIS Climate Summit COP 21, AND BEYOND! #onn #olsx #radicalassembly

Time To Act



This December, world leaders will gather in Paris to strike a new deal for the climate. Time to Act will be working alongside other groups for mass mobilisation in the UK and Paris - find out more here!




On 7 March 2015, over 20,000 people took to the UK streets to demand bold action on climate change, two months before a general election, and nine months before the COP 21 climate talks in Paris.

Jointly organised by the Campaign Against Climate Change and a dedicated team of amazing volunteers, Time To Act featured a rally which included a range of speakers but also encouraged the theme of the day to go beyond words, into actions. Dancing polar bears reclaimed the space at at Heathrow, banners were dropped at Trafalgar Square and off Westminster Bridge, the Tate was challenged by Art Not Oil for it's BP sponsorship and a giant carbon bubble was returned to the Shell HQ. During the march itself Occupy Democracy and Reclaim The Power orchestrated the largest ever recorded climate sit-down.

The day showed the breadth and diversity of the UK social and climate justice movement as we marched alongside our friends challenging austerity, TTIP, public services cuts, fracking, the arms trade and racism, and acknowledged the same broken system which exists beneath all of our struggles.

We look forward to continuing to grow, strengthen, to act and to challenge. To encourage others to join our movement and to lead from the grassroots up. This is our time and this is our planet, and the power of the people is stronger than the people in power. To Paris, and beyond....
