Monday Action: Blog for the Environment

NB the Monday Action page.

Monday 15th October, 4 weeks from now, will be Blog Action Day. Given that this year’s day is themed “Environment” and it shall also be a Day of Action against Royal Bank of Scotland and their oil and gas funding practices, it should be quite a green day. But RBS aside, its the day when bloggers around the world are encouraged to discuss an issue, in order to raise its profile.

In a way, its a pity that they’ve picked the Environment. Had they picked anything else, I suspect the environment would still be a high profile issue all the same, but encouraging bloggers to think about the potential political power of their blog is something I like the sound of, and they’ve picked a good issue non-the-less.

Anyhow, if you’ve got a blog, sign up to take part. If you’ve not got a blog, get one, they’re really therapeutic and I should really hate people to be missing out on the whole experience. Or maybe you could write a note on your Facebook page.

And while you’re at it, get some friends together and do something to highlight the role of big banks, RBS in particular (they also own Natwest). The Day of Action has Rising Tide’s name on it, but its really just a good day for anyone and everyone to focus on the effect a bank like RBS is having on the climate through its investments.

It needn’t be anything desperately difficult: sometimes a banner and leaflets are all thats needed to make a few people think. You can get lots of information about RBS’s sins in a report on the People and Planet website and information for Action Planning from Network for Climate Action.
