CCC-Aberdeen journey to Edinburgh

The Edinburgh march was a great success with around 400 people in attendance. The mood for action was very posotive and, speaking for CCC-Aberdeen here, i think we where all heartened to se such a motivated group of people, and we are all ready to get back on the campaign and start raising awareness locally.


The rally ended at the scottish parliment building where we heard Mark Ballard(green party), Mark Lazarowicz (labour) , Duncan McLaren (foe) and Ruth Cameron (Edinburgh student union) speak about the importance of action on climate change and, specifically, of our campaign.

The talks can be listened to here.
