Here are some of the photos I took at pro-environment marches in London, during the early years of the Campaign against Climate Change (CaCC).

14 & 19 July 2001

Like a child with a new toy, I couldn't resist using the image processing software that came with my laptop computer, to make elaborate collages of my early pics. The first of these features a "Global Warning" [sic] rally outside the American Embassy in Grosvenor Square. Then, 5 days later, we reassembled at Buckingham Palace, to mark US President George W Bush's visit to London with an "Unwelcoming Party" (and btw the "Outlaw" banners were translucent, I didn't flip the image!).


28 July 2001

This march went from Lincoln's Inn Fields, via Exxon Mobil's office in Aldwych, to the US Embassy. Speakers included Green Party MEP Jean Lambert, and CaCC Co-ordinator Phil Thornhill.

13 October 2003

Friends of the Earth organised the "Tractors and Trolleys (against GM)" march, during a year when the subject of genetically-modified organisms (GMO) was, let's say, something of a hot potato...

18 November 2003

Another Bush visit, and another CaCC march to Grosvenor Square. As ever we were accompanied, and entertained, by the bicycle-powered sound machine known as Rinky Dink (photo 2). The first speaker, at around 9pm, was ex-Environment Minister Michael Meacher.
