BOOGIE IN THE BRIDGE PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 05 July 2005
Boogie on the Bridge AKA Ceildh on the Clyde

( a ceildh is a gaelic name for a dance with live music.  Boogie means to dance. )

Friday the 8th of July

MEET COMMERCE STREET BRIDGE 2PM

Glasgow

As part of the day of action against the root causes
of climate change on Friday 8th of July, we will be Ceildhing on the Clyde.  This is in opposition to the
M74 extension, that will cut through the heart of Glasgow and increase carbon burning traffic.  It is also an expression of solidarity with people  fighting the root causes of climate change everywhere.

Whilst the G8 talk hot air about climate change, come and resist one of the major causes, oil driven transport.  Whilst they fight wars for the remaining carbon resources come and resist Scotlands newest and least popular  motorway.

Bring Musical Instruments, things to make noise with, banners, toys and what you expect to find.

Stop the M74, Save the Climate!

July 8th, 2005 International Day of Action on the Root Causes of Climate Change

We are here to make some noise - to shout our rage and dance our hope to stand up and show the G8 and the world that the climate crisis can no longer be ignored.

Today, we are saying NO to the M74, to traffic and pollution, to climate chaos, and to the international institutions, power-hungry politicians and profit-seeking companies that constantly put the needs of people and the environment last.

As the G8 comes to a close, it's no closer to solving the climate crisis it helped create. The G8 leaders cannot even begin to acknowledge the massive scale of the problem we face - if they did, they would be forced to recognise that industrial capitalism, built on fossil fuels, must come to an end.  

Here in Glasgow, plans are brewing to extend the M74 - 5 miles of towering concrete slicing through the heart of the Southside. Local people have rejected the extension, knowing that it would increase air and noise pollution, contribute to climate change, worsen traffic and split their local community. But government planners, bent on pursuing the false needs of 'progress' and 'economic development', plough ahead with their roadbuilding schemes.

Today, we are joining forces with thousands of people around the world in an international day of action on the root causes of climate change. Actions are also happening today in Venezuela, New Zealand, Iceland, Australia, and the Philippines... Together, we are a growing global movement for climate justice. We have at most one decade left to dismantle oil-fuelled power structures like the G8, before climate catastrophe dismantles us. So it's time to take action.

Join us on the streets as we flood the G8 and the world with our demand for change and our vision of a just, joyous and fossil-fuel free future.
