UNA Twickenham & Richmond on Bring Your Climate Demands to Westminster
Hilary Evans of UNA Twickenham & Richmond has written:
“Readers will probably be aware that Extinction Rebellion (XR) has now decided to quit actions causing public disruption. This year the priority will be on encouraging attendance rather than arrest, relationships rather than roadblocks.
“An event is being planned for Friday 21st April to which XR invites all people, all groups, all organisations to create a critical mass impossible to ignore. The target is for 100,000 people from all walks of life to gather peacefully at the nation’s seat of power in Westminster and encircle the Houses of Parliament. Planning is in its early stages but although the idea seems to be to maintain a presence at Westminster for several days, the main focus will be on a huge gathering on the 21st.
“I hope UNA members will feel able to support this action, with its opportunity of demanding that our government take seriously its commitments to the UNFCCC, and indeed take active steps to better support and strengthen the UN and promote its ideals, with the goal of achieving greater international co-operation in solving the immense problems faced by humanity.”
“Humanity has a choice: cooperate or perish. It is either a Climate Solidarity Pact – or a Collective Suicide Pact.”
