KYOTO MARCH: Saturday May 15th 2004
Time to stand up for the environment
Time to make a stand against Bush

The Kyoto March is an annual event that allows people to get together and onto the streets to sound the alarm about the accelerating deterioration of the global environment and in particular the huge threat posed by the catastrophic destabilisation of global climate. It is a chance to make a stand against those with the greatest power who are most to blame:  currently George W Bush and his backers in the US fossil fuel industry, who sabotaged the world's efforts to deal with global climate change by dumping the Kyoto treaty now 3 years ago. Our event marks the anniversary of that greatest of environmental crimes.

Our event includes

1/ A 'Long March' from Exxon-Mobil HQ, near Leatherhead, Surrey, 20 miles to the US embassy, central London. Starts 7.oo am - but you can join anwhere en route (or leave the march, leapfrog ahead by tube/train and join again, etc..): for timetable and and 'night-before' accomodation near the start see below. ExxonMobil is the world's largest oil company and Bush's principal anti-Kyoto corporate backer : it has been waging a cynical war of disinformation on climate change, for many years. See www.stopesso.com.

2/  Rally at the Imperial War Museum, 3.30 pm for the main march (last leg of the 'Long March') through central London to the US embassy.

3/ Speeches and 'DINOSAUR PARTY'
