Campaigners from clean water action group Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) will soon be converging on London to join thousands of people in urging world leaders to take urgent action in preventing catastrophic climate change.
On the 4th November 2006 two actions will take place in London that SAS will be taking part in:
Action 1: SAS will be meeting at 12noon outside the US Embassy in Grosvenor Square, London to join the National Climate March where they'll join other marchers walking to Trafalgar Square to join Action 2.
Action 2: Count in the Square, Trafalgar Square, London 1-3pm
SAS are part of the Stop Climate Chaos Coalition, who are co-ordinating the Trafalgar Square action in London on November 4th as part of the Icount campaign. The action takes place on the eve of critical international climate change talks in Nairobi and we need people in Trafalgar Square in their thousands to help send a message to the Prime Minister and other world leaders that they must stand up to stop climate chaos.
The chief areas of concern and research relate to the impacts on water quality because of predicted rainfall increases, the likelihood of sewage treatment works not being able to cope with increased flows of wastewater, the impacts of rising sea levels on surf breaks, the effects of coastal erosion and an acidification of the oceans leading to coral reefs dying off.
