This morning, Push Europe helped deliver a petition to the UK government with over 1 million signatures globally, calling to #EndFossilFuelSubsidies - arguing that the first step to stopping climate change would be to stop funding it! Petitions today are also being delivered to leaders in other G20 countries including Sydney and Washington DC.
The signatures have been collected by 350.org and were delivered to the UK government at Downing street, London together with activists from Push Europe, Friends of the Earth and Avaaz.
The petition delivery is being accompanied by a TwitterStorm to ramp up the pressure (most of the politicians targeted are on Twitter...). The idea is to get the theme to trend and possibly even to break a record!
Everyone is invited to support this great campaign today - have a look at the TwitterStorm page and the Facebook event. If you'd like to get really involved with regular content update, you can sign up to the social media team where you'll get about 4 emails during the day to give some extra direction.
