Campaign Profile: Climate Rush

Climate Rush is a new campaign inspired by the actions of the Suffragettes 100 years ago, who showed that peaceful civil disobedience could inspire positive change. We are a diverse group of women and men who are determined to raise awareness of the biggest threat facing humanity today – that of Climate Change. We demand DEEDS NOT WORDS because individual choice alone cannot curb CO2 emissions if we are to stop runaway global warming.
We say: “No new coal – to avoid runaway climate change. We can’t have infinite growth on a finite planet.” We demand a transition to a low-carbon society with sustainable jobs, counteracting any jobs losses from the coal industry with a major re-skilling programme in sustainable trades.

The most important thing you can do to support Climate Rush is to attend one of our actions (see our website). You can join our email list by sending a blank email with “subscribe” in the subject field, or join our Facebook page. All donations (via our website), however small, are greatly appreciated and will allow us to continue mounting peaceful, creative, high-profile actions to keep pressure on the government to take action on Climate Change.

You can also join one of our working groups – email us to find out how. http://www.climaterush.co.uk
