Climate Rush

One hundred years ago this coming Monday the Suffragettes descended on the Houses of Parliament to demand women's rights. To celebrate the momentous event, Climate Rush are organising another demonstration, in the cause of another pressing issue - climate change. They write:

100 years ago the Suffragettes went to Parliament and demanded that their society change.  They held a mass rally outside Parliament to which thousands came, before a number of them rushed into Parliament and got everyone's attention.  We invite you all to celebrate the 100th anniversary of this world changing event.  We invite you to celebrate when women got radical.  Enjoy a rally and speeches in Parliament Square.  Enjoy social change.

Gather in Parliament Square at 5.30pm on Monday 13th October, dressed in white or in suitable period costume. Details on their site here.
