London, July 10 (ANI): Harry Potter's on-screen girlfriend is set to talk to thousands of campaigners at a climate change rally in London.
Scottish star Katie Leung will address people in the Meadows as part of the Cut the Carbon event, organised by Christian Aid, later this month.
Katie, who plays Harry Potter's energetic girlfriend Cho Chang in the new Harry Potter movie, will be joined by pop singer Amy Macdonald and award-winning saxophonist Soweto Kinch.
"The Christian Aid rally is doing something really important - highlighting what climate change is doing to the world's poorest countries," the Scotsman quoted Katie, as saying.
In the rally, which is one of the UK's longest-ever protest march, 20 walkers will make the 1000-mile journey from Northern Ireland to London, passing through many UK towns and cities.
The protesters, stressing the consequences of climate change on some of the world's poorest countries, will bring the march to a close in Edinburgh on July 21.
After the closing of the march, up to 2000 people will join the protestors in another protest rally through the Capital, taking in Castle Street, Princes Street, the Mound, George IV Bridge and finishing in the Meadows for the rally.
Christian Aid, who have organised the event in association with Stop Climate Chaos Scotland, are hoping that around 3000 people will turn up at the event to prove their support. (ANI)
