Join The Wave this Saturday + Ed’s Pledge

2 December 2009

  • What: The Wave Climate March
  • When: 11.30 – 16.00, this Saturday 05 December
  • Where: Grosvenor Square, London (meet by the Labour & Unison Banners)

On Saturday 5 December 2009, ahead of the crucial UN climate summit in Copenhagen, tens of thousands of people from all walks of life will flow through the streets of London to demonstrate their support for a safe climate future for all. Part of a global series of public actions, The Wave will call on world leaders to take urgent action to secure a fair international deal to stop global warming exceeding the danger threshold of 2 degrees C.

We can be proud of what our Labour Government is doing to push for a deal that is ambitious, effective and above all fair – putting forward extra aid to help poor countries adapt to the impact of climate change.

Gordon Brown last week proposed a ‘Copenhagen Launch Fund’ to help poorer countries adapt of $10 billion, towards which the UK would contribute £800 million. This is exactly the sort of leadership that is needed in these crucial talks, and I hope that the rest of the EU and the US agree to it.

So please come along to The Wave this Saturday, and sign up to Ed’s Pledge, to show our support for Gordon Brown and Ed Miliband’s work to get an ambitious, effective and just deal at Copenhagen.
