Million Climate Jobs Meeting Report

Report from Oxford Campaign Against Climate Change

Just under 60 people came to the recent Oxford launch meeting for the One Million Climate Jobs booklet, including local climate activists, Green and Labour councillors and trade unionists. The meeting linked up the economic argument for creating jobs and the devastating cuts proposed in local youth service provision and discussed ways to further spread the climate jobs message. The meeting recieved radio air time and has struck a chord with several local union branches who have ordered copies of the booklet. A film about the campaign is being sponsored by the local UNITE branch and will be available shortly.

An activist meeting will be held this Tuesday 7.30pm at the Town Hall to discus next steps and arrange speakers for local groups who have requested them. All welcome
