Facebook event

Central London rally

  • There will be speakers at the permitted rally which will be 11am - 3pm on Millbank SW1P 3JA (just south of the Houses of Parliament, nearest tube station Westminster)
  • 1pm will be the national ‘Climate Alarm’ moment - alarms for 1 minute, wherever you are 
  • This will be followed by party leaders who will be answering the question: ‘what is your plan’ 
  • There will be a kids space with banner making (and quiet prayer space) in Victoria Palace Gardens 
  • Migrant Justice group are hosting a Climate Justice bloc which will be at the front 
  • People are encouraged to stay beyond 3pm to support the strikers in their demonstrations

Don't forget to bring your union flags, banners and homemade union placards, so we are visible in our action and solidarity!

Trade unionists have organised several local rallies, with walk outs from work at lunchtime. Obviously all will be welcome at the central rally for whatever time you can get there. If you can, do aim to arrive in central London by 1pm-1.30pm for a great show of Trade Union support and solidarity for the Global Climate Strike and with our students.
