Dear Barclays... we handed this letter to Barclays on Saturday 15th UPDATED - Extinction Rebellion Warwick District
 
 

Extinction Rebellion Warwick District

We are facing an unprecedented global climate emergency.

The government has failed to protect us.

To survive, it's going to take everything we've got.

Join the Rebellion

On the 15th January we protested at Barclays Bank Leamington, at their greenwashing.  Barclays has invested $145 billion dollars in fossil fuels since the Paris agreement of 2015, yet claims “It’s our ambition to be a net zero bank by 2050. We’re already net zero emissions from our own operations..." blah blah blah.  Join us in demanding action.  We brought mops and cleaning gear to symbolise the greenwash and business attire.  Read the letter and see photos below.

NOT YET RECYCLED?

If you're like us, then you will be fed up with buying products from the supermarket with those dreaded words 'not yet recycled' on the packaging.

Our rebels came up with a great idea and we want you to join us! Please save this 'not yet recycled' packaging and bring it to us (maybe collect it in a separate box next to your normal recycling💡).

There will be a drop off point at every Local Group Meeting.

Watch this space for what we are going to do with it! Be assured it will be fun and it'll relieve any guilt you might have, now that you don't have to throw it away.
