GREEN activists have been preparing banners at an East End community centre in advance of this week's climate camp in London.
Thousands of people are expected to gather at the Camp for Climate Action which starts at a secret location on Wednesday and continues until September 2.
Campaigners got creative at the RampArts Centre in Rampart Street, Whitechapel and used paints and sewing machines to help them create eye-catching banners working round the clock with people putting in the hours after their day jobs had finished.
Spokesman Merlin Hayward said: "We can no longer wait for the governments of the world to save us from the biggest threat human kind has ever faced - climate change.
