Unite to Survive: 21-24 April
In April we'll be joining XR and many other campaigners at 'The Big One' - a climate action around Parliament and the surrounding area, under the banner 'Unite to Survive'.
As the IPCC releases its latest summary report of climate science warning of the final chance to act - a 'survival guide for humanity', unity and solidarity is more important than ever, bringing together different struggles, and fighting back against the politics of division.
Come when you like, leave when you like, and stay for as long as you can. There will be engaging speakers, interactive activities and more across the four days. Some details:
Friday 21 – Day 1: things will kick off with the People’s Picket, as everyone surrounds the government departments in the area, flooding Westminster in a wave of flags and banners.
Saturday 22 – Earth Day: it will include a huge march for nature, biodiversity and the planet. This will be a colourful, creative and extremely family-friendly day.
Sunday 23 – The London Marathon will pass by Parliament Square, providing an opportunity to engage with the crowds of spectators. This will be a great day for outreach, and internal communication and deliberation.
Monday 24 – Parliament returns. This will be an important and powerful moment to interact once more with parliament and decision-makers, and deliver the people’s demands.
If you're coming from outside London, there is a list of transport options from outside London (more to be added) and information about accommodation.
