Cambridge Rebellion Day

little boy

Saturday 15th December 2018

Venue: The Grafton Centre
Category: Direct Action
One Liner: Climate Crisis hope
Price Info: free
Time Info: 10am - 2pm

Join us for the first Extinction Rebellion local action in Cambridge ✊ This will be part of a National Day of Action happening all over the country.

We will meet in front of the Grafton Centre (Fitzroy St end near Coop bank), then to the Grand Arcade and to Shire Hall County Council offices. More details about the actions at each place will be shared closer to the date.

Our procession will end with a funeral ceremony at Shire Hall, mourning all the life we've lost, are losing and will continue to lose because of climate breakdown.

We rebel because we love this world. It breaks our hearts to see it ravaged, to watch so many people, plants and animals all over this world already dying, to know that this will soon happen to our children if nothing changes. There is no way forward without giving voice to our grief.

Please bring a wreath, flowers, pictures of communities hit by climate breakdown already, or pictures of extinct/endangered animals to lay on the coffin.

Children and teenagers are very welcome - we’d love to have them there and there’s nothing dangerous going to happen! However, the themes of Extinction and Death will be dealt with fairly explicitly so please consider how your particular children will react to this, and how to help them respond if bringing them.

We demand that Cambridge City Council and Cambridgeshire County Council declare a Climate Emergency and take urgent action to avoid climate catastrophe.

We act in peace, with ferocious love of our world in our hearts. We act on behalf of life.
