Bush Inauguration Demo
Climate protestors in the shadow of past Presidents..Eisenhower, in the foreground; Franklin D Rooseveldt in the background (statue in the park)
The President (Noel Cooper, Hackney Friends of the Earth) takes an oath to 'preserve and protect' the planet (our wishful thinking !). Thats Mark Douglas (Hackney Green Party) helping Uncle Sam (Phil Thornhill) with the megaphone. This demo was mainly due to a collaboration between Hackney Friends of the Earth and London Green Party. This sort of collaborative effort on climate change as a number one global threat...was the genesis of the CCC.
Uncle Sam plays football (or rugby football) with the world. Looks like he's trying to convert it over the eagle at the top of the embassy! Either that or kick it straight into the face of George Lee (standing, arms crossed).
