6pm Saturday 30 October. Sound the alarm about climate breakdown!
On 1 November, delegates from around the world will meet in Glasgow for the most important conference in the world’s history: COP26.
It takes place against a background of devastating fires and floods all around the world. We know these are being caused by global heating. We know this is driven by CO2 and methane emissions. And we know that despite the Paris Agreement, emissions are continuing to rise.
On the eve of COP26, we want to send the strongest possible signal to world leaders to show that people all over the UK and all around the world demand immediate action to save our planet and its people from catastrophe.
How? by bringing people out on the streets for 10 minutes at 6pm on Saturday 30 October with pots, buckets, bells and anything else that can be banged or rung to make a loud noise.
Climate breakdown threatens to destroy everything we love. Will you help to raise the alarm?

📽 On the eve of the opening of COP26, the world Climate Conference in Glasgow, the CURZON CLEVEDON presents a one-off special screening of ‘THE TROUBLEMAKER’ followed by Q&A with special guests to discuss the future of effective protest in the modern world. ⌛️
“The Troublemaker provides a blueprint for people who are sick and tired of the futility of civil discourse in combating the climate catastrophe. We hope this film inspires people to embrace radical tactics and actions that bring about real change. Our very existence depends on it.” —Rooney Mara & Joaquin Phoenix”
“In an open letter, the chief executives of Unilever, H&M and nine other companies have called on governments to take meaningful action on mass extinctions of wildlife and the collapse of ecosystems or risk “a dead planet”.
“The Cop15 biodiversity conference is our last and best chance of turning the tide of biodiversity loss. The draft Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework lacks the ambition and specificity required to drive the urgent action needed,” it said.
After they’ve systematically and mercilessly pillaged the Earth for their own profit they now realise there’s no business on a dead planet… 🙄
Leading business warn!! Ha ha! That’s so hypocritical…
Yes, probably is hypocritical, etc. I think I agree, but calling other people hypocrites doesn’t help the situation. If we just criticise and punish everybody who is at fault for the crisis we are in then we’d all just be standing around criticising and blaming each other and getting nothing done. There aren’t many of us around who haven’t contributed our share towards this situation were all in (and honestly, how many of us mightn’t even truly be that bothered if we knew it was only going to affect those people/countries a long way off?).
It’s been said that we need big business to do their part for things to really have a chance to change and I think that might be more likely to happen if there was more cooperation instead of blame. I love blaming everyone else for everything that’s wrong, especially the tories.
Whether we like it or not we haven’t got the time to criticise and decide on relevant punishments and criticisms, it’s so urgent that time now needs to be spent on trying to solve the problems.
(Perhaps punishments could be suspended or awarded retrospectively and perhaps businesses/big offenders could have their punishments offset by how they contribute to the solution now.
Raving hypocrites!!! More businesses jumping on the greenwash bandwagon. Those businesses are the ones with lobbying power in governments, where are they wielding it to make governments take action?
