Ready for The Big One, here’s what you need to know

The big one, houses of parliament 21 to 24 April

We’re two weeks away from the Big One. Happening on 21 to 24 April around the houses of Parliament in London.

It’s going to be an inclusive, collaborative event where we’ve invited loads of other climate-focused organisations to join us at protesting the climate emergency. And many of them have stepped up to stand alongside us.

Everyone is needed. The focus is on encouraging others to get involved over large arrestable spaces.

This action weekend includes Earth Day and the London Marathon and has been organised with cooperation from both the London Marathon organisers and the police.

If you’re feeling out of the loop. Now is a great time to get involved. This will be the last news roundup before a group of us from Stroud head over to join our fellow rebels in London.

Our big one planning meeting is on Wednesday 12 April

There’s a group of us planning to go to London from Stroud. We’ll be organising where we meet, what our plans are and how to find one another at our upcoming meeting .

Like to come with us? Let us know by coming to our next meeting on Wednesday 12 April  at 7pm at The Ale House in Stroud.

There are also Stroudies going to London from our local Greenpeace group, Stroud Red Band, and Street Beats Stroud (our XR samba fusion band) among others. More help is needed if you can spare any time.
