There will be huge climate protests around the world next Saturday 5 December.

A diverse range of organisations – including NGOs, faith groups, trade unions, charities, political parties, student unions and green organisations – are building the protests to demand real action to combat climate change.

In London, activists expect thousands of people to descend on parliament to take part in “The Wave”, organised by the Stop Climate Chaos Coalition, which is backed by over 100 organisations.

It aims to create a dramatic, visual protest that will surround parliament.

Chartered trains will bring protesters from major cities including Manchester, Birmingham and Leeds.

Transport is also booked from smaller towns and cities – including Hartlepool, Canterbury, Guildford, Stratford-on-Avon, Weymouth and Dorchester.

Some groups of activists are cycling to the protest.

The Campaign Against Climate Change, which is part of Stop Climate Chaos, has organised a rally in Hyde Park at 12 noon.

It will then meet the main march from the US embassy in Grosvenor Square to parliament to join the Wave.

A separate Wave event is taking place in Glasgow.

Activists will assemble at Bellahouston Park at 10.30am and begin the march at 11am. It will finish in Kelvingrove Park.
