Campaign Against Climate Change – National Demonstration
‘Fight for 1 million Green Jobs’
The Campaign Against Climate Change has called demonstrations in London and Edinburgh on Saturday 5th December to fight for one million green jobs and publicity flyers are attached. The RMT is affiliated to the Campaign and I would urge all members to participate in these demonstrations. Assembly at the larger London event will be from 12pm in Hyde Park.
Climate change threatens millions of people around the globe and without serious action, the planet’s future is very bleak. This December the international community gathers in Copenhagen to discuss a new climate change treaty. At the same time the world is in the grip of a terrible financial crisis and unemployment in Britain is climbing towards 3 million. The Government promised to invest in green jobs as a path to recovery, but as this Union knows too well from all the transport workers made redundant to Vestas, those words ring hollow.
We urgently need to invest in green energy, public transport and insulation schemes which have the potential to create green jobs.
Assemble 12pm, Saturday 5th December 2009, Hyde Park, London
