SELHuG at Climate Justice demo

SELHuG joins Humanist Climate Action at Climate Justice demo

Following October’s talk from Humanist Climate Action’s Tasha Gray, SELHuG joined the group at the Global Day of Action for Climate Justice in London on 6 November. There were demos in Glasgow and cities across the UK; in fact Cop26Coalition, the main organisers, said over 250 decentralised mass mobilisations were planned globally. Their aim was to “bring together movements to build power for system change – from indigenous struggles to trade unions, from racial justice groups to youth strikers.”

Our group marched as part of the Faith & Belief block alongside Cafod, Christian Aid, Quakers, Tearfund, etc. All the main environmental charities like Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth had been calling supporters to the event for weeks. We marched from the Bank of England and around St Paul’s to Trafalgar Square, where trade union leaders, politicians and artists talked about the need for solidarity from all organisations and individuals who care about climate justice – tackling climate change and building a fairer world at the same time.
