The Wave - Details For Today's March

This afternoon, ahead of the UN climate summit in Copenhagen, tens of thousands of people from all walks of life will march through the streets of London to demonstrate their support for a safe climate future for all.

The Wave leaves Grosvenor Square at 1pm with the aim to encircle Parliament at 3pm. The route goes through Berkeley Square, down to Piccadilly, passes through Piccadilly Circus and down Haymarket to Trafalgar Square, then along Whitehall to Parliament.

The anti-capitalist bloc will be meeting up at 12.45pm in Berkeley Square, next to the statue in the middle of the green. Climate Campers are apparently meeting at the north end of the square. To get to Berkeley Square, turn left out of Green Park Tube Station and then left again up Berkeley St (opposite the Ritz).

Latecomers (I mean you, my east London friends) should probably head for Trafalgar Square for around 2pm and join up with the march there.

Climate Camp has announced a 48-hour action after the Wave - see here for details.

If you see someone wearing a blue 'Domestic Extremist' shirt, that may well be me. Come and say hello!

My t-shirt arrived (hurrah!!) but I now can't make the demo. Good luck with that and if you take pix I will link to them if that's ok.
