I am writing to invite you to an exciting and innovative environmental event in central London onThe “Going Backwards” march will feature people proceeding en masse backwards down Whitehall to protest against the current administration’s woeful backtracking in virtually all areas of climate change and environmental policy during its first year in power. Here is the link to the Facebook event page:
If you could announce this event to your meetings and inform your members that would be great! Meanwhile, sign up on Facebook and invite your Facebook friends! Tell everyone! Spread the news on social media! Hundreds are coming already but we want to turn this into thousands.The event will be very dramatic as (as the march proceeds) a famous host will introduce a rolling series of street theatre performances to pinpoint the craven actions of one guilty government ministry after another. These will highlight the administration’s attack on the clean renewable technologies of the future that can help save the planet and shame its support for the dirty old fossil fuels that are choking our one and only world.There will be a demonstration against the Prime Minister’s backsliding on a third runway at Heathrow.Finally, there will be a poignant protest against air pollution and the tragically large and unnecessary toll of lives it takes each year due to government inaction.Having highlighted the fatal and inefficient policies of the present, the event will end on an optimistic note as a range of speakers many of whom are pioneers in their field will show us how good the future can be if we reject backward and self-interested thinking and embrace a positive and dynamic agenda.Yours,John HunterCampaign against Climate ChangePlease do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
