Trump and May, Climate Disaster: Rise Up!

In the UK, May's government are continuing a programme of climate action cut-backs, while pushing through damaging infrastructure such as fracking and a third runway at Heathrow.

In the US, Trump is slashing funding for climate science and preparing to force through disastrous projects such as the Keystone XL and Dakota Access Pipelines.

On 22 April, join us on the climate bloc at the March for Science - London, part of a global movement of scientists pushing back against the rejection of evidence in favour of 'alternative facts'. Join on Facebook and find out more.

On 29 April, as the People's Climate March takes place in the US, we're taking a message of solidarity to Westminster Bridge and rallying for UK campaigners to rise up for climate action! Join on Facebook and find out more below.

In the US, the first 100 days of Trump's presidency - disastrous for the climate, the people of the US and those of the world - will be marked by a massive climate march in Washington DC. In London, we'll be showing our solidarity in London in a creative climate change action on Westminster Bridge at 1pm - literally spelling out a message to Theresa May - don't follow Trump down a path to climate disaster! Before that, at 12pm, we'll be hearing from speakers who'll highlight practical actions we can take.

Afterparty! Feedback, a food waste campaign are putting on an afternoon and evening of family-friendly activities with free food, music, and plenty of opportunities to discuss climate action. Join their Disco Soup event on Facebook.

Final planning meeting: Monday 24 April.
