Stand Up for Change
We are planning to stand and make our presence known before the County Council and District Council full meetings to demonstrate our dissatisfaction with the current inadequate response to the climate and ecological emergency.
We will comply with government advice. At this time we are planning to go ahead with this action even if the councils are not physically there. If you attend please make sure that we all stand well spaced out.
This action is inspired by the campaigns of civil resistance in Central & Eastern Europe (mainly Poland, Hungary, East Germany, Bulgaria and Czechoslovakia) in the late 1980's. There were mass non-violent demonstrations and clear popular opposition in many cities. People stood out on their streets making their presence and dissatisfaction know to the authorities and pressured for change. This action is open to everyone, not only Extinction Rebellion.
The more the merrier so bring friends, relatives, strangers ... everyone is welcome.
