XR Dacorum

Extinction Rebellion

Notes from our meeting on February 24th

HS2 banner

We were glad to play a part in the national action on Monday and join in the Twitterstorm. The banner looked great at the multi-storey car park and Hemel Today ran an online feature with lots of HS2 greenwash as well as our statement. Sue did a Facebook Live which was well supported.

CEE bill – flyers

Tring almost covered. Berko should be more or less finished by next week. Some Hemel coverage. J to talk to T about KL and Apsley. We have under £2,000 left. If you could help in the next week, contact us.

  • Banners

We will have 3: one long, one large and square, one small. K joining Sue’s ready for painting. We have 40 metal eyelets and BAC sell them if we need more. We discussed having a placard/sign with them with: Search Petition Gagan. That brings up our petition.

  • Installation from Chesham

We discussed how to reuse a striking artwok, and G will measure a couple of disused shop doorways to check it fits. Again, we could have a placard saying Search Petition Gagan. G to collect the installation from Jane in Ley Hill.

Bank Action coming up again…

Rebellion of One was discussed.

Dacorum Development Plan

  • Deadline for submitting responses is 28th Feb. K working on an official XR response but do submit YOURS. We talked about a march: Sue to contact Lindy of the Citizens’ Association.

Next meeting: Tuesday March 2nd. S to ask T to host.
