Extinction Rebellion


On 9th December we stood on Berkhamsted High Street with this message, initially asking people what they thought or felt about COP 26. One person was “quite positive” about it (!) but many ignored the question and some didn’t know what COP is. We had flyers with ideas about what people can do on one side, and who we are on the other, and it seemed to work better when we offered them saying, “What can we do about climate change?” because we ran out within 50 minutes. That said, the level of apathy or complacency is astonishing.

We aim to return another time. Please contact us if you can hold a placard or give out flyers.

The good news this week is the release of James Brown on bail.

We await with trepidation the outcome of the Police, Crime and Sentencing Bill’s reading in the House of Lords. S attended the protest in Westminster.

Two of our members hope to do the training in January for setting up a Climate Cafe.
