Just a quick reminder to our readers that tomorrow, Saturday November the 4th, demonstrators across the world will take to the streets to mark the UN climate talks in Nairobi, Kenya. Why not join them? They will be demanding tough action and binding targets on climate change. So far it looks like at least 45 countries will have some kind of event, including Australia, Bangladesh, Finland, France, Taiwan, USA and the United Kingdom.As we pointed out before in our earlier post on this, perhaps the most encouraging sign about these events is that many of the organisers, such as the UK based i count coalition, appear to involve a broad alliance of groups, including traditional environmental campaigning organizations, groups specifically targeting climate change, and even overseas aid and development organizations. Now is the time to be putting aside differences to demand immediate and decisive action from our political leaders. We hope to see you on the march, wherever you are.
