Climate March London Images
Thousands marched at the Global Climate Change march in London.
I had a great time on this march. The sun was shining and there was plenty of colour and expression of love for the planet that we live on.
The crowd was too big to gather at Temple place.
After half an hour it was time for the crowd that I was in to start moving. This give me an indication that there were thousands of people present.
There was a decent amount of banner bombing but all in all it was all relevant. Climate change dominates most environment groups’ campaigns.
Cyclists came in droves.
The crowd moved at a leisurely pace all in all in chirpy mood, a mood that defies the severity of climate change.
The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership also had its day in the sun.
Dancers were abound!
A Hari Kirshna band!! They were part of my highlights of the march. The drummer was being transported on the back of bicycle contraption. Very innovative stuff.
Recently I discovered that Lord Browne who is in the House of Lords is the head of the energy company Cuadrilla currently involved in fracking in Lancashire. He also oddly enough. is responsible for appointing key roles in the Department of Energy and Climate Change which is the regulator of the energy industry that he is in. This is not good for stopping climate change! Fracking indirectly and directly contributes to climate change.

We passed Cameron’s crib. We did a bit of a song and dance for him and he was not polite enough to clap.
Singing for Cameron. “There is an alternative to austerity” “No TTIP” “You are elected to keep your promises”
Another band , another highlight.
We then walked to the Tory Campaign Head Quarters. The Reclaim The Power crew took us there. Some speeches about fracking were made and then we moved on.
And then I went home and discovered that Russel Brand had twitted the following:
