Join MHSG at The Big One climate action, Saturday 22nd April
Come to a massive peaceful action in Westminster this weekend to demand Government action on climate change.
Events run over four days 21st-24th April. Organised by Extinction Rebellion (who've left roadblocking and similar tactics behind) in liaison with the Metropolitan Police.
Muswell Hill Sustainability Group will be taking part along with many others from across the county. Join our party to travel to Westminster at East Finchley underground station, 11am. Look out for the MHSG banner. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you'll be travelling with us.
Why we're going
The climate emergency is worsening but the Government is opening up new areas for oil and gas fields and cutting taxes on domestic flights. Meanwhile its plans for cutting carbon don't match its own targets. So we're making clear to Government that the UK people expect it to protect the planet. The Big One is being organised by Extinction Rebellion (XR) and will be joined by many other environmental organisations from across the UK.
What we're doing on Saturday
We'll head for the Main Stage at Victoria Street for the Unite for Nature Rally at 1pm to hear speeches from Chris Packham, Dave Goulson, Jyoti Fernandes of the Land Workers’ Alliance, and Delia Mattis of Black Lives Matter.
At 1.30pm The Big One For Biodiversity March will head off from the Main Stage at Victoria Street on its route around Westminster.
If you're travelling independently, maybe we'll see you there. Other events run over four days 21st-24th April - see the summary below, and the full programme from Extinction Rebellion here.
If you can't attend in person on any of the four days but want to be involved from home you can join the Digital Rebellion - sign up here.
Thanks and hope to see you there!
