The Time Is Now: Join the mass lobby in June
It’s no secret we’re facing a climate emergency. So why does it seem our MPs are the last to know?
We need to tell them that it’s time to sit up and take notice. Time to act. Time to fight climate chaos.
This summer, the government will have to decide:
Is it worth slashing the UK’s climate-wrecking emissions by committing to a net zero target?
Should we protect and restore nature, here and abroad, by setting out the most ambitious environment law in 20 years?
It’s not rocket science. The time is now to say yes to real action.
On 26 June, we’re inviting supporters from every corner of the UK to take this message straight to Parliament – and we want as many local groups as possible to join in.
10,000 of us will surround Westminster, aiming to meet with every single MP and tell them why voters across the country demand action now. A giant street party with a really serious message.
Your support is going to be crucial. We know many people won’t be able to get down to London on the day. But there are loads of ways local groups can help everyone get involved – from meeting your MP or holding an event in your constituency beforehand, to spreading the word on social media, to coming along on the day and bringing voices, images and sounds from people where you live.
And don’t forget, you can come along on your own too. There are even coaches scheduled from some locations and travel discounts available to help you or your group get to London.
If you’re joining as a whole Friends of the Earth local group, please email us too with any questions, comments or ideas. We’ll make sure you have all the information and resources you need to make the most of your involvement.
The time is now to fight climate chaos. Join us.
PS. Still not convinced? Back in 2015 almost 9,000 of us told MPs the UK should commit to practical action to cut climate change at the Paris Climate talks. It worked (and it was pretty good fun too)!
