D3: International Day of Action on Climate Change
On November 28th the signatories to the Climate change Convention begin meeting in Montreal - The United Nations Climate Change Conference.
The Montreal meetings are being accompanied by worldwide protests on December 3rd. People will be mobilising in thousands of locations around the globe to call on governments to take real action on climate change.

Most countries at the UN Climate Change Conference will be signatories to the Kyoto Protocol, a plan to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions of industrialized countries by 5.2% (compared to 1990 emissions). Only the United States (highest emissions globally) and Australia (highest emissions per capita), have refused to sign. Despite it's flaws, many countries threatened by climate change see the signing of Kyoto as an important first step.
But government's rarely reflect what their citizens want. People from the US and Australia have created their own "People's Ratification of Kyoto" to send a message to George W Bush and John Howard and the rest of the world that "it is our duty to respond". And the protests around the world on December 3rd will call for a stronger emissions reduction treaty to prevent dangerous climate change.
