Climate Change protest
Trafalgar Square, London, Saturday, 04 Nov 2006
"Climate change is the single biggest long-term problem we face - the evidence is overwhelming" (Tony Blair).
"Climate change is a far greater threat to the world than international terrorism"
(Sir David King, UK Government's chief scientific adviser).
Coming ahead of a two-week UN summit being held in Nairobi, Kenya, to evaluate the progress of the Kyoto protocol, thousands of protesters flooded into central London to attend the 'I Count' rally at Trafalgar Square.
Organised by the Stop Climate Chaos Coalition, the march travelled from the US embassy in Grosvenor Square to Trafalgar Square.
Marchers called for an international deal to keep global warming to less than two degrees centigrade, and demanded that the government take the lead by introducing a Climate Change Bill to cut UK carbon dioxide emissions.
