Members of Sutton for Peace and Justice will be going with other campaigners from Sutton on the March for Climate Change on Sunday 29 November.

Come and join us – we will meet outside Sutton Station at 11am to travel up to London for the march.

Around the world, in major cities, people will be marching on the eve of the crucial Paris climate talks, which will take place from the 30th November to the 12th December.

They will send a unified voice to governments across the globe to take real action on climate change to save our beautiful planet.

After assembling in Park Lane, at 13.00 the march will move off and proceed to a rally at Millbank, just south of Parliament, from 2.45  to 3.45pm.

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control we are not able to show The War Game, so the proposed screening on 27 November has been cancelled.

We do apologise for the disappointment this will cause.
