EVENT Reading People's March for jobs, justice and the climate


Sister March for jobs, justice and the climate **Save the Date 30 April, Sunday**

We warmly welcome you to participate in the Reading People’s March for jobs, justice and the climate on Sunday the 30th April.

Climate change. WE #RESIST. WE #BUILD. WE #RISE.

We are a group of extraordinary and ordinary people who believe that now is the time to #ActOnClimate Change. We want to encourage leaders throughout the world at #COP23 arranged by Fiji in Bonn to go beyond binding decisions on Climate Change.

What will happen at the event?
We will march on Sunday 30th to show support for the People's Climate Movement and for the international summit in Bonn 6–17 November 2017. We want to encourage ambitious action on CLIMATE CHANGE to avert a global crisis. WE WANT Reading to be part of a giant global movement for change. WE WANT a more just, more equitable and healthier world for us all.

We will walk through Reading town centre with a stop outside the Civic Centre. The walk starts at 12pm at Redlands Road (The Museum of English Rural Life) and the route includes six stop offs, one at the Civic Centre. Highlighting practical actions we can take to stop the UK from following Trump down a path of climate disaster! before finishing up outside Reading Town Hall. Rules to abide with hosting a joint People's Climate March http://media1.tvb-climatechallenge.org.uk/2017/04/Host-Guidelines.pdf

"Walk with us on Sunday 30th from 12pm. Assemble 11.30 at Redlands Road to March for climate, jobs, and justice. You can also join in at any of the points A-F along the route."

From the Town Hall we walk towards Forbury Gardens for a well-deserved honourable www.incredible-edible-todmorden.co.uk -picnic on the grass. There will be a climate stall will with information as part of the climate rally.

By marching we will attract media attention hours before Trump’s 100th day in office, giving the event special importance. WE NEED local and global leaders to know that WE INSIST they should take ambitious action on CLIMATE CHANGE to avert a global crisis.

In #Togethernessship, we are more powerful than anyone possibly can imagine. Whatever happens in the US, WE CAN, and WE WILL, build the future from here, resilient, fairer and more humane. As well, an emergency adaptation #DRR - Disaster, Risk, Reduction and restoration plan for every city essential to be implemented in local legislation.#WHYIMARCH
