More info on the big One and march 1 meeting

The big one is April 21 to 24. Four days before for preparation April 17 to 20 and then planning next steps and pack down April 25 to 28

Hope this email finds you well.  This week I have some more information on the upcoming action in London from April 21, plus info on our next Stroud meeting on March 1.

The Big One in April

Did you know that we’re planning our largest action yet? We’re planning The Big One in London asking for 100,000 rebels to come to parliament from 21 April. 

If you have some spare time (or can take the time off work). You’re most needed on the four days from April 21 to April 24, which includes a Friday weekend and Parliament sitting on Monday. This is also the weekend of the London Marathon and we’re working closely with organisers.

The aim is to get a large cross section of different environmental groups (not just from XR) to come together in a joint approach. We’ll be hosting the space for everyone else to join in.

Here’s some more information and the whole plan. There’s also a Youtube video if you prefer it in video form.

Volunteers are also needed for the four days before and after this focused action to help prepare, and pack away. We’ll have an active presence in London for 12 days total.


Cheltenham XR are running a coach from Cheltenham on Saturday 22 April and returning same day and also stopping in Cirencester for £20 return with option to overpay to help subsidise or pay less if needed.  


Here is the form to request camp spaces.

Next meeting – March 1

There’s a group of us planning to go to London from Stroud. Like to come with us? Let us know by coming to our next meeting on Wednesday 1 March at 7pm at The Ale House in Stroud.

We’ll be meeting fortnightly at The Ale House every Wednesday at 7pm going forward too.

Can’t make it? Let us know if you’d like to get involved in some way and how we can support you.
