Come and join this Scottish protest against Government apathy towards the climate crisis.
This action is part of an international mobilisation during the latest round of United Nations climate change talks in Poland. It’s called by Friends of the Earth Edinburgh but we invite other organisations in Scotland to join us.
There is a huge gap between world leaders’ actions and what is urgently needed. Commitments made during the Paris talks, even if they were respected, will keep us on a catastrophic path to 3 degrees global warming. Government and private investment in fossil fuels continues to be made at the expense of alternative sustainable energy. Yet with international cooperation the target of a cap of 1.5 degrees warming is achievable.
Our message is “The global community will hold you accountable and we are coming your way to challenge your inaction in the face of the crisis we face”.
