A worldwide Children's Revolution to try to save the human race from extinction caused by global warming and climate change could start in London, England, on 4 November 2006.
Plans for the March for Global Climate Justice to be led by the kids' bloc that attempted to shut down the G8 summit meeting at Gleneagles in Scotland in 2005 are being considered by environmental activists in Britain.

There will be marches in many countries around the world calling for global climate justice at the United Nations climate talks in Nairobi on 6 November.
The Earth Aid Environmental Campaign is urging eco warriors in every country to encourage their children to lead these marches in support of the Children's Revolution which they hope will turn into a worldwide phenomenon.
At the G8 summit in Scotland in 2005 the children of the eco warriors who organised the road protests against the British government in the 1990s held a picnic in front of the Scottish riot police to try to stop the delegates from reaching the meeting which was attended by George Bush and Tony Blair.
The kids also paraded around in front of the cops holding a banner reading "The Kids Are Revolting!" while more than 1000 activists followed them singing "When the Kids Are United They Will Never Be Defeated."
The Children's Revolution kids' bloc also led the march at the Drax power station protest in Yorkshire, England, organised by the Camp for Climate Action in August, 2006.
They carried the same "Kids Are Revolting!" banner and the British police blocked their way and tried to stop the women and children from reaching the power plant.
On 4 November in London more than 20,000 people are expected to march from the American embassy in Grosvenor Square to Trafalgar Square to demand global climate justice at the United Nations climate talks starting on 6 November in Nairobi.
The kids' bloc are considering leading the march with the Rhythms of Resistance samba band and the Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army marching alongside them in support of the Children's Revolution to save the human race from extinction.
There are expected to be similar Marches for Global Climate Justice in a number of different countries simultaneously on 4 November.
Some British activists are hoping that all the marches around the world will be led by children to emphasise the fact that the very existence of future generations will depend on urgent worldwide action to tackle global warming and climate change.
A large number of reputable international scientists are now claiming that humanity faces extinction this century as a result of the effects of global warming.
Other banners that are being considered by the British kids' bloc are "We Are Heading For Extinction!" "The Children Are the Future" "Can You Save the Human Race?" and "When Money Talks Truth is Silent".
The Earth Aid Environmental Campaign's lawyers are working on court cases on behalf of the people of the world against the British and the American governments and the oil companies and the transnational corporations and the banks, to attempt to hold them all responsible and accountable for causing global warming. The full report "Can You Save the Human Race?" will be available soon.
We would like to suggest that maybe the only way to save humanity from becoming extinct as a result of the cataclysmic effects of global warming and climate change may well be to support the Children's Revolution as it tries to ensure the survival of future generations.
At the G8 Stirling eco village in Scotland in 2005 the kids' bloc said they wanted to hold their Children's Revolution again at every possible opportunity, and they appreciated the help and support they got from everyone else.
Obviously whatever we do should be fully in accordance with the principles of the Rio Earth Summit Agenda 21 and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
