The rally heard from speakers including the Bishop of London, the Rt Rev Richard Chartres, and fashion designer Dame Vivienne Westwood.
A vast coalition of interests took part in the London march – from the Women’s Institute to Occupy London, from the British Medical
Association to Greenpeace and thousands of ordinary people.
There were all the big organisations, Oxfam, the WWF and also organisations like the Quakers, all sorts of organisations and groups.
It was like watching a carnival – there were giraffes and lions, snowflakes and families marching.
There were protests in many countries to demand urgent action on climate change, with over 2,000 marches taking place around the world. It has been organised to call for action to curb carbon emissions ahead of the UN climate summit in New York, 23 Sep.
The meeting will attempt to push forward political momentum towards a new universal agreement on climate to be signed by all nations at the end of 2015.
