Come Off It!

I have just been informed of this interesting site promoted by a guy who calls himself the "Carbon Coach". The basic idea is to cut personal emissions (oo-er!) by starting with a big push on the 4th November, particularly through reducing demand for electricity on that day. Those of us on the demos and actions on 4th November won't be using much electricity anyway on that day, but it might give an opportunity for a larger group of people to act in solidarity if it caught on.
Here are some of the other events of the day in London, circulated by Calvin Jones:

10.00am Cycle protest assembles at Lincoln's Inn Fields, South side (Holborn/Temple tube). Goes via ExxonMobil offices, Australian Embassy and Downing Street to arrive at US embassy at 11.30 am.

11.00am Rally opens : Messages from around the world, performance poetry & musical protest with "Seize the Day" and others.

12 noon Main Rally at US Embassy, Grosvenor Square. Speakers include George Monbiot, Colin Challen MP, Caroline Lucas MEP, Norman Baker MP, Zac Goldsmith.

1.00 pm March for Global Climate Justice from US embassy to Trafalgar Square

1.45 - 2.00 pm March joins i-Count's.. Mass Gathering in Trafalgar Square

1.00 - 3.00pm i-Count Mass Gathering in Trafalgar Square

Stop climate chaos are limiting their activities to the UK but the march organisers, CCC, are keen on international solidarity, more on:
