This will likely be my last newsletter before the rebellion starts. I hope you are as well as you can be. I hope you know that anything that you can offer during the rebellion is appreciated, be it being there in person, supporting wellbeing from Stroud, or rebelling remotely, we are sincerely grateful for your time and energy.
Here is the latest info for local and national rebellion in Cardiff.
Banner drop help needed urgently
Our local Rebellion starts tomorrow Friday 28 Aug with Banner Drops on M5 motorway bridges. We need Rebels who can sit with these banners on a couple of quiet roads at Stonehouse to mind the banners during the day (couple of hours shifts, with another rebel.. come in a pair.
Please contact me if you can join in this one. This is part of the National Banner Drop Action to highlight the Rebellion and the Climate & Ecological Emergency Bill, which is the focus in this rebellion!
Observing arrests video
The final decision over whether you are arrested is taken not by you but by the police.
It is essential for every rebel engaging in NVDA to learn what to do when witnessing an arrest in order to safeguard the rights and the wellbeing of the person being arrested.
Please take 15 minutes today to watch this video.
