Local activists join climate protest

Members of the local CWU branch (left) were amongst a coach load of people from Oxford who joined the Campaign against Climate Change march in London this Saturday.

The march was part of a global protest in more than 50 countries demanding that governments meeting for Climate talks in Bali establish a strong and binding treaty to cap Co2 emissions.

The London protest was addressed by, amongst others, Tony Kearns from the executive of the CWU union. Trade union involvement in the Campaign against Climate Change is to be strengthened by a special conference in February, a flyer is avaialble here:
