Thousands of climate change activists will converge on Drax power station - the single largest emitter of carbon dioxide in the UK (1) - for ten days of direct action this summer.

Alison Templeton from the Camp for Climate Action (2) said:
"The only solution to climate change is a drastic cut in our energy
consumption. Drax continues to belch out emissions while we are staring
catastrophe in the face. It has to go."

DEC 3RD 2005 INTERNATIONAL DAY OF CLIMATE ACTION

This is the statement written jointly by members of London Rising Tide, and read out at the December 3rd 2005 rally outside the US Bombassy in London:

This day of action is undoubtedly the best supported and most international day of action on climate ever planned, which is an amazing achievement. Today’s a day to tell the world that we have had enough of being told that ‘the end could be nigh’ by scientists, only to see our leaders jamming their foot on the accelerator of a car that is already hurtling towards the cliff edge - whilst they shout ‘Trust me – I have your best interests at heart!’

And whilst today is a great achievement, maybe we should be asking ourselves some difficult questions, and re-examining our arguments and our tactics.

Raised voicesFilmed testimonies from people affected by climate change and the oil industry:

The next UN talks on climate change will take place in Canada at the end of November 2005. While the US administration remains resistant to signing the climate agreement and many countries are on course to fail to meet their Kyoto targets, the impacts of climate change intensify.

Meanwhile the oil industry is investing billions in discovering new sources of oil and creating environmental and social injustices in communities they operate in.
