There’s lot in the news this week about how our government isn’t doing enough to prevent climate breakdown. In upsetting times like this, I find myself with two options: 1) to despair 2) to see what more I can do to support Extinction Rebellion and Stop Ecocide.
Now is a great time to come back to our meetings – we’re meeting this Wednesday (and every Wednesday) in Stratford Park bandstand at 6:30pm for a friendly, social meeting. Please join us and help us in our work we’d be very happy to see you.
Can you help with rebel ringing, outreach or XR social planning?
We’re planning on discussing these and other actions and support activities in our next meeting so please do come along if you could spare any time to help with these, or any other roles, or actions ideas you have.
Wednesdays meeting will start at 6:30pm at will be at the Stratford Park bandstand. To celebrate us meeting again let’s have a bring and share meal. Let everyone know and remind and invite people you haven’t seen in a while. There will be an open mic during the meal if anyone would like to play some music. Here’s how to find us.
Can you help with placing banners?
This is a good way to help with G7 if you’re unable to travel or want something to do right away. Help is needed by Val to make and place banners around the local area, so please get in touch if you can help. We’ll be hanging banners in key road locations ready for G7 on Thursday 10 June (in the morning). Please contact me or reach out to Val if you can help.
