Who says you can’t have a bit of fun whilst trying to wake people up to the impending horrors of the preventable loss of our life support systems from ecological collapse and climate changes…? Not XR Cirencester!
In a classisc “Outreach Action” our young Extinction Rebellion group took to the streets of our quintessentially middle-England market town to raise awareness of our forecoming plight and the fact that there is a local group actively campaigning for the three demands:
- Tell the truth – share the full facts and recognise the gravity
- Act Now – this is an emergency to prevent an even worse situation
- Go beyond politics – we need a united effort from everyone
At lunchtime on Sat 14th December folks out and about Christmas shopping in Cirencester were amused, confused, and entertained by Extinction Rebellion Cirencester.
Santa, his elves, and a Polar Bear were out looking for new homes, as Climate refugees, followed by a motley choir of carol singers who paraded through the centre to the sound of drums, and even a mobile harp.
Then gathering outside the Parish church singing carols highlighting the climate crisis we are all in together.
Cookies & Leaflets were handed out inviting anyone interesting in being part of change, to come along in the New Year to a drinks night in Porters on Castle street, 7.30pm January 30th all welcome – more on our Facebook Page
