‘Climate Change and the Extinction Rebellion’ meeting
27 February, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm GMT
(NB this is not an SSB meeting)
‘Climate Change and the Extinction Rebellion’ meeting at 7.30pm in the Old School Community Centre. An introductory meeting organised by people in South Brent concerned about climate change, in order to discuss the background to the issues and the focus of the ‘Extinction Rebellion’ campaign. The ‘Extinction Rebellion’ (‘XR’) is an international movement that aims to promote radical change, through nonviolent resistance and ‘respectful disruption’ and to signal to those in power the existence of an emergency situation that requires emergency action to minimise species extinction and avert climate breakdown. Its central demands are that the Government must tell the truth about the climate and wider ecological emergency, and reverse inconsistent policies by enacting legally binding measures to reduce consumption levels, and carbon emissions to net zero by 2025.
