Firstly, a big thank you to everyone to wrote emails, letters and protested in the lead up to the Lords vote on the policing bill. Here’s information from Liberty on the 14 amendments that were rejected. It’s not over yet, but it was a great victory for a universal group of protestors.
Rebellion starting again on 9 April
The new XR strategy for 2022 has been released, and this confirms that rebellion is starting again in Hyde Park in London on 9 April. So save the date.
The new strategy focuses on local rebellion and we’ll be planning local actions with the target of getting 3.5% of the population involved in climate action.
We’ll be meeting outside again as soon as it’s a bit warmer. Are you still interested in meeting up in person with us?

No new roads rebellion
There is a banner drop happening across the country this Saturday. Although we may not have a local banner, it would be good if you could share information about the roads rebellion this weekend on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
Here are their demands:
Tell the truth about the impacts of new road building and car manufacturing
Act Now to halt the new road building programme and invest instead in a green, integrated public and active transport system, in all areas
Enact regional Citizen’s Assemblies on transport.
