Members leafleted passers-by and gathered petition signatures against the channelling of climate funding via the World Bank.
World Bank loans to help poor countries cope with climate change are creating new debt for them.

The UK needs to find other outlets for climate finance.
WDM’s campaign for climate justice is linked to a week of action to precede the United Nations climate talks in Durban, due to take place 28 November – 9 December.
