On 21 September Peoples Climate March took place in cities such as New York and London. We received plenty of great images from the marches, with mikipaloma123 providing us with this one from Mallorca. You can also see more photos in our gallery.

A small, but dedicated group of people who want to help save the planet! Youngest member, Paloma (3 years), oldest, Hella (94 years)!

"Sierra Leone totally looks like a war zone. Conditions in the north of the country are critical. And critical are the conseguences of Ebola epidemic. Noone in the streets, its hard to find food, prices are much higher. The three-day lockdown has made things even worse for the population, which has been struggling to get food and water. To face the emergency, the staff of the Italian ngo which I work for, AVSI Foundation, distributed to most vulnerable families some essential commodities: rice, oil, onions, tomato sauce and soaps. In addition, the Ministry of Social Welfare has asked us to assist about 250 street children in some neighborhoods of the capital, who were living on alms, and if left alone would not have survived. It was an emergency in the emergency". Ernest Sesay, President of Family Home Movement (AVSI Foundation network). http://www.avsi.org/

This church stands next to the much better known Library of Innerpeffray, a repository of books dating back to the 1400s. Amongst other attractions, it has a carved 18th century gravestone and a "leper squint", through which lepers excluded from church services could watch the mass - poor things, out in the cold! This view of the interior was taken from the small gallery.

I hope my son will grow up in a country and a world where poverty, inequality, damaging environmental practices, conflict, hatred and division are a thing of the past. The Greens are the only main stream British political party that I believe have the philosophy and policies to achieve this.
