Local residents in 15,000-strong illegal march

Hastings and St Leonards residents – including two who found themselves at the head a 15,000-strong illegal march through the streets of Paris earlier this month – reported back on their experiences of the protests outside the UN climate summit at a meeting in Hastings this Sunday. The event was preceded by an hour-long musical event hosted by protestor Thad Skews.

Four Go To Paris

Local cyclists head to Paris protests

At least nine Hastings and St Leonards residents are travelling to Paris this week to attend protests outside the UN Climate Summit (COP21).

The People’s March

HOT’s Zelly Restorick attended The People’s March in London on Sunday – and would like to share her photographic record of the event with you. An estimated 50,000 people marched, along with thousands of others around the world. Will our collective non-violent action make a difference to the outcomes of the Paris Climate Change talks? After decades of debate, will this be a turning point for humanity – and all the other residents of planet earth?
