ECan Vote on Declaring a Climate Emergency. We Celebrate/Protest

16/05/2019 at 10:45 am - 6:00 pm

Extinction Rebellion have asked ECan to declare a climate and ecological emergency. ECan councillers will vote on this declaration on May 16th at 11am. The general public is welcome to attend.

Extinction Rebellion protests in the U.K have resulted in Scotland and Wales declaring a climate emergency. No doubt England and Ireland will follow. Jeremy Corbyn is calling for the U.K government to do the same. Worldwide over 500 city and regional councils have already declared.

If ECan votes to declare a climate emergency, we will congratulate them and celebrate their decision.

If ECan votes against declaring a climate emergency, we will do what Extinction Rebellion does best. We will apply the political pressure needed to bring change. Please bring your signs and banners and be ready for peaceful protest.

Rebel for Life.
