POTS AND PANS NO!SE DEMO! – meet 12 noon

The International Roundtable of Energy and Environment Ministers is meeting in London on the 15th of March 2005. Show these ministers and the world at large that we won't let the climate go to pot.

On 15th March, in the build-up to the G8 Summit in Scotland which will take place in July this year, the Labour Government will share its future vision of market environmentalism with 20 countries (including the G8 themselves) at the International Energy and Environment Ministers Roundtable.

So will they practice what they preach?

  • £5.5 billion road-building programme to build 200+ new roads.
  • Airport expansion (12 new runways across Britain); refuse to tax aviation fuel despite government promises to tax polluting industries
  • £500 million of public money for export guarantees to the oil and gas sector per year in the last three years via the UK Export Credit Guarantee Department (ECGD).
  • Nuclear energy classed as 'green' with Labour plans for more reactors

Why leave the future stability of the planet in the hands of these profit-driven megalomaniacs as ecological and social justice is trampled worldwide?

Help us meet the system's violence with creative defiance - join us on the streets in solidarity with the millions around the world already suffering from climate change and other injustices... and above all, make some noise!
