Scotland's Climate March

Hello everyone, apologies for the relative radio silence on the blog recently, but have been busy helping out with Scotland's Climate March. If you don't know what it is yet from previous blog posts all you need to know is that you're not going to want to miss it especially after you find out who'll be there! The rally after the march will be compered by Hardeep Singh Kohli and live music from Colonel Mustard and the Dijon 5.

This is what Colonel Mustard had to say about playing at the march:
"Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5 and the Yellow Movement are honoured to play our part at Scotland's Climate March in one of our favourite city's; Edinburgh. Or Gladinburgh (as we now call Glasgow and Edinburgh combined). We expect the day to be family friendly, positive in it's outlook, educational and we are delighted to provide the entertainment with a twist of social and environmental commentary.
Human-made climate change is something that is undeniably impacting everyone on the planet in some way. Air pollution is a very real problem here in the UK. People die from it. In Indonesia right now, uncontrollable forest and peat fires are raging out of control and exacerbating the problem, just so the West can consume palm oil and timber. Animals, forests and human beings are dying. The lamestream media are mostly ignoring something that might not pay their wages but which is catastrophic for Earth!

Even if you don't care about trees, leopards or other peoples kids, climate change will impact you and your children. We have more of a vested interest than corporations putting profit before people. 
The Dijon 5 and Yellow Movement stand for creating positive change. Despite the global corporate elites robotic suicidal tendencies to keep destroying the planet, we know our informed brothers and sisters understand that by making positive changes; like joining/helping environmental NGOs, signing/sharing petitions, lobbying politicians and boycotting corporations who are the worst climate change abusers, means we can hit them in the only place they notice; their balance sheets. You usually see a change in policy when profits plummet and negative PR becomes too much for them to bear. 
We don't inherit the Earth from our parents, we borrow it from our children. Be the change you want to see in the world. 
Fighting the "good" fight is our promise to our children. Let's make our voices heard before the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris in December! See you in Edinburgh on Saturday 28th November. Your Colonel needs you! 
You ARE the 6th Dijon! We love you. Thank you for being a friend.

Peace, love and Mustard.
Colonel John Thomas McMustard"
