Rehad Desai Speaking Tour

Below are details of the Campaign Against Climate Change speaking tour taking place over the start of November, there are a number of dates across the country and it would be good to see Green Party trde unionists getting involved.

The Campaign Against Climate Change is bringing over climate activist and film maker, Rehad Desai from South Africa.

This years UN Climate Conference takes place in Durban, and Rehad is part of organising the mobilisations of people from across the country to demand "Climate Justice".

On the same day that they protest, the CaCC demonstration will take place in London.

Rehad is speaking in several different cities across the UK, alongside other climate activists, trade unionists and campaigners. We hope that you will be able to join us.

Please note that while these are firm dates, some information, such as additional speakers may be subject to change.

Rehad is also hoping to raise money while in the UK, to help fund the mobilisations in South Africa. If you would like to make a donation towards the cost of the tour, or towards the cost of the mobilisations in South Africa, please contact CaCC via the website below.
