15 October 2016 - Rupa Huq MP & Stephen Pound MP

were at Perivale Wood for Speak Up Ealing!

 

This was an event organised by members of St Stephen's Church. The MPs were asked to help protect the people, places and wild places we love from climate change. They joined many local residents to enjoy a walk in the woods, listen to speakers talking about the effects of climate change on places as diverse as Perivale and the Philippines, and discuss how we can draw attention to this problem that concerns us all, wherever we live. The event was very well attended, and the rain held off until almost the end!


Ealing Friends of the Earth group took the opportunity to ask Dr Rupa Huq, MP Ealing Central and Acton, to sign the Pledge for the Environment, an initiative of a group of many leading environmental organisations unified by a desire for a thriving natural world and a greener, healthier society and economy.
