350.org – Hope dies. Action begins. What’s Extinction Rebellion?

16 November at 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Heard about Extinction Rebellion? A fast growing movement in UK of people frustrated at the slowness of those in power to act on the climate crisis.

Sparked off by the IPCC report, news of species loss, dying oceans etc etc – ordinary people are now demanding government moves to an emergency footing to tackle climate chaos.

And they are promising and committing to non-violent civil disobedience and disruption if this doesn’t happen.

Exciting stuff!  Extinction Rebellion plans to go global by March and already it’s spreading
Check out these Aussy school-kids striking in protest at their government’s support for fossil fuels.

How do we take advantage of this wave of energy? Our new government is in fact taking a lot of climate action – how do we ginger them along without risking the return of the denialists?

Check out George Monbiot’s inspiring speech at the London rally on 31 Oct

Lots to think & talk about. And some of us have some concrete and exciting ideas for action.

Come along this Friday, watch the Extinction Rebellion video and let’s talk!
