Calling all East London Rebels and friends to come and join a weekend of learning, play and protest with Extinction Rebellion, Friday July 12th - Sunday 14th.
We're gearing up...
Across East London, XR (Extinction Rebellion) branches are busy creating a treasure-trove of creative and participatory activities which will bring our message on climate and ecological breakdown home.
Over three days of family-friendly events, we will come together to enjoy music, share food, and learn about the climate crisis. At the Uprising, East Londoners can listen to talks, skill-up at workshops, make their voices heard through peoples assemblies, peacefully protest at the air pollution march, enjoy the Lung performance, ponder the meaning of life on earth over climate art and photography installations, join the XR skeleton procession, and of course ACT NOW, with non-violent direct action!
We'll send a full timetable and locations map soon, but as a teaser, we're going to…
TELL THE TRUTH in London Fields
ACT NOW in the Garden of Earthly Delights
MOVE BEYOND POLITICS outside Hackney Town Hall
But we can't do it without you...
To make all of this happen, we need YOU - and there are lots of ways you can get involved:
- We’re looking for yogis, gurus and wellbeing people to run free classes
- We’d love musicians, artists and creatives to perform, create and share
- If you’re a storyteller, cook, gardener or poet, come and share your vision of a greener East London
- Not forgetting super organised, dedicated people to work collaborative magic and pull everything and everyone together
Every contribution is treasured and we're an inclusive grassroots movement - if you want to get involved please come to your nearist East london local group meeting. Check here or on the XR London facebook page for more details when and where each group meets.
