Speak up, for the love of...

LDCF members were among the 9,000 people who came to Westminster to meet their MPs recently, calling them to take action nationally and internationally on climate change. 


The event, called "Speak Up For the Love Of…" was organised by The Climate Coalition - a coalition of 100 organisations including Christian Aid, CAFOD, Islamic Relief, RSPB and Oxfam campaigning for action on climate change. 

Central lobby inside the Houses of Parliament was heaving with activists calling on politicians to support national and global efforts to hold back CO2 emissions and build a cleaner economy. 

Bishop Nick Holtam, who gave an address at the ecumenical service on the day, said:

This is not just our individual concern. It is our Christian concern together as the Church. It is the concern of people of all faiths. It is our human concern in solidarity with all people. The world is our home

In addition, this month has seen the release of the Pope's new Encyclical, which calls for a radical rethink of humanitys relationship with the world and urges all people to take strong action on climate change. It has been a significant few weeks for the international climate movement.
