📣 G7 Cornwall Rebellion ~ Drowning in Promises ~ 10 - 13 June 📣
The G7, leaders of the world’s richest democratic nations are meeting in Cornwall on 11-13 June 2021 - and we will be there to greet them!
The G7 Summit will play a crucial role in climate negotiations this year, laying the path for the G20 Summit and COP26. The need for G7 countries to step up their ambition and make good on their promises has never been greater.
⚡️We are calling on EVERYBODY who can, to stand up and take action in Cornwall⚡️
Over this weekend we’re planning a series of COVID-safe, nonviolent mass participation actions across mid-Cornwall; from Carbis Bay and St Ives to Falmouth and beyond. We will be on the beaches, headlands and town streets bringing our message to the G7: We’re Drowning In Promises; Act Now!
