THE CLIMATE EMERGENCY
Affects us all; globally, nationwide, locally and at the end of your street.
BUT SPELTHORNE BOROUGH COUNCIL
Has voted AGAINST declaring a climate emergency. They have declared they will form a cross party group to plan how they will achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. Science tells us this is WAY TOO LATE.
The council have also voted FOR supporting Heathrow Airport expansion with the third runway.
It is no surprise Spelthorne Borough Council ranks ROCK BOTTOM of the Friends Of The Earth league table of local authority performance on climate change.
WE'RE GOING TO HELP THEM CHANGE THEIR MIND
The Staines local group of Extinction Rebellion is a Non-Violent Direct Action group acting with the same principles and values of Extinction Rebellion (XR) as detailed on their main website.
WHAT THE FUNDS WILL BE SPENT ON
Booking rooms/halls for meetings, printing (including banners, flyers, posters, stickers, badges), essential equipment purchase and hire and technology running costs (including e mail provider, server space).
We always aim to hand make everything we use wherever possible, using scrap and recycled materials. It's both essential and looks cool.
All expenditure will be 100% transparent, published on our Facebook page and available upon request by e mail (addresses below).
Funds donated to this account will NOT be used for to pay for legal costs or fines of any individuals who are arrested/convincted for their actions. If you wish to support those arrested carrying out Extinction Rebellion actions, visit the XR Central Legal Defence Fund crowdfunding page here.
