‘Speak Up’ Week of Action on Climate Change, 8th-14th October


One of three requests for action sent by post and email in the run-up to the Week of Action.

Dear Friends of NE-CAP,

The national Climate Coalition depends on NE-CAP, a member of the Coalition, and other supporters, to ‘Speak Up’ and make its voice heard in the region – and NE-CAP in turn depends particularly on YOU, its committee Members, Constituency Contacts, and Supporters!

Because of the ‘Save Druridge’ campaign, the Great North Run, our ‘Eve-of-Run’ events, and other pressures, I have not been able to give the ‘Week of Action’ the time and attention I would have wished. However, all is not lost, because Christian Aid has taken the lead on this for the Coalition in the region and a creditable number of events have been arranged as a result – our thanks to them! [AND I’ve arranged another one – see below.]

So please support one of these events if you possibly can – it doesn’t have to be in your constituency.

AND support our drive for climate sanity and justice by taking the ‘VERY EASY’ action by writing to your MP (see other email).

With sincere appreciation,

David (Dr David Golding CBE, Development Coordinator)
