Here are some messages on upcoming actions from XR Gloucestershire:
Friday 30 October – Over our dead bodies insanerator actions
Extinction Rebellion Gloucestershire are working with the local group Community R4C to continue to build pressure close the incinerator and return millions of £s to our county council so they can create a Waste policy that will help us in the race towards net zero carbon rather than pumping pollutants into the atmosphere.
Action is at Shire Hall, Gloucester, and ideally rebels would need to be there from 8:30am to finish by 10:30. Covid precautions aware lifts can be provided from Stroud area to Gloucester and back.
The plan is to have a “die in”, themed “over our dead bodies”, to jar councillors attending a specific key Audit Committee meeting, to ensure the issue of stopping Javelin Park and getting a better alternative is at the top of their agenda.
We are working to have a “rubbish” monster (modelled on the idea of Chinese Dragons) to create a dramatic presence and also need at least three people to be the “bodies” that councillors have to step over to get into the meeting.
To do your bit & play your part, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
