From XR Marches: We have issued a ‘shoutout’ to all activists and supporters to get involved in our ‘ListenUp!’ series of actions over the next 3 weeks starting with the first ‘Delay = Death’ event this Thursday, 25th June (initial Zoom meeting Fri 19th June at 7.30pm):
Next Thursday morning – 25th June the parliamentary Committee on Climate Change releases a report which is bound to repeat that the UK is still missing its own pitiful climate action targets. We need to make it clear to our MPs, government and fellow citizens that ‘delay = death’. There will be co-ordinated actions nationwide.
Our local action will start with a sombre, dramatic, socially-distanced procession to each MP’s local office. We will carry a stretcher holding the Earth. There will be symbolic action and prominent delivery of a large letter. We will publicise our message so it can’t be ignored.
As the local offices of all 3 local MPs will be targeted (Hereford / Leominster / Ludlow) and there will also be supportive actions in other places, everyone across the Marches can be involved one way or another.
This will be the first of three local ListenUp! actions instigated by XR Marches over the next 3 weeks, each themed differently so as to build on the previous action and respond to expected parliamentary reports and governmental announcements. Each action will be:
- Responsibly social-distanced and everyone wearing masks and gloves
- Photo’d and video’d for immediate social media release nationwide
- Written up with press releases for local / regional press / radio / tv
- Compiled across all locations into a Marches-wide publicity video
WE NEED AS MANY CLIMATE ACTIVISTS AND SUPPORTERS AS POSSIBLE TO GET INVOLVED TO MAKE THIS FLY! ALL KINDS OF ROLES ARE AVAILABLE / NEEDED…
If you are able to contribute in any way please do at least one or all of the following:
