The COP21 climate talks in Paris have given up all pretence of staying in with 2 degrees of global warming, and are about to agree a new limit on global warming of 3 degrees – which will mean the end of the planet. The Paris Red Lines initiative is promising the biggest show of civil disobedience ever over the climate, with two weeks of mobilisations during the summit culminating in mass direct action on the weekend of December 11-13th as soon as the summit ends – when there will also be an enormous unified march. Activists from NO DASH FOR GAS will be showing films giving more details about the mobilisations, and taking bookings for cheap travel and accommodation.
The premiere of a new Reel News film about the latest London Living Wage campaign in one of the most difficult industries to organise. Bike Couriers from the IWGB union will be present to explain more about their successes so far, how other bike couriers can get involved, and what the rest of you can do in solidarity with their struggle.
A few days after Remembrance Day, we’ll be showing how Veterans for Peace marked the occasion, plus two more shorts: “War Veterans Discard Medals in Rejection of Militarism and War”, and Darren Cullen’s brilliant “Action Man: Battlefield Casualties”. BEN GRIFFIN from VfP will be present to explain more, including the truth about the red poppy.
