14th October 2007 early demo report: nearly 30 people took part in the London leg of the worldwide anti-McDonald's day. It started at noon at the Leicester Square McDonald's. There was a Ronald McDonald attacking a person dressed as a cow. The cow went down well with the kids and even some adults! Lots of leaflets were handed out and the public seemed to be receptive on the whole. Also, the police were noticeable by their absence. The demo moved onto the Shaftesbury Avenue McDonald's and finished at about 3.30.
There is a national day of action at the Shell site at Bellanaboy, County Mayo, Ireland. For those who cant make the demo- solidarity actions are also being called for...

Just in time for the 2007 Climate Camp - the Toolkit for Climate Action is now ready. With this toolkit we hope to inspire you to take action - at home, at school, at work, in your community. The toolkit has been put together by the Network for Climate Action, which is has grown out of and is associated with the Climate Camp.
The camp dates are drawing nearer and nearer and we're all desperate to know where it will be... but we'll just have to wait a little longer!
But what we do know is that if you get yourself to Staines railway station in West London by 10am on Tuesday 14th August, you will be greeted by our friendly welcome team and promptly transported via a magical mystery tour, to the camp! (There will also be lifts to the camp later in the day and throughout the week.)
