EVENT IN TRURO Tuesday 29 November New County Hall Truro from 9 am onward.Lets hear your voice.
There is no easy way to say this but the message is clear from climate scientists and the United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres (October 2022) He says we have 2 to 3 years left to prevent tipping points being reached and that we must prioritise the climate crisis above all else, to prevent catastrophe.
This coupled with an accelerating cost of living crisis, pollution in our Cornish seas, a shortage of affordable local housing stock and a broken NHS system.These factors will affect all of us in our quest to build sustainable communities.
If we fail to act at this time in history, we condemn ourselves, our children and grandchildren to real hardship and suffering.
But we still have hope and vision to create positive change ensuring social justice and climate justice for all, by building constructive dialogue with our civic representatives and building action within all levels of society.
We therefore ask you to join us in a PEOPLE'S ASSEMBLY and speeches. Lets find solutions together,in our changing world, all welcome...Please pass on.
THE CLIMATE PROTESTS
"Arrest the rain.
How dare it remind us that the climate is changing!
Let's pretend it always rained like this.
Handcuff the wildfire.
Why should we care about the trees?
What did koalas ever do for us?
Take the flood to court.
It has no business blocking roads, or sweeping away bridges.
What if an ambulance was stuck on the wrong side of the river?
Give the clouds a suspended sentence.
They are trying to remind us that a warmer world has wetter air.
They should go and tell China, not us.
Dress the heatwave in an orange jumpsuit.
It is probably a fault in the thermometer anyway.
These scientists - what do they know?
Sentence the melting ice to 10 years in the cooler.
Why does it matter if the sea floods Bangladesh?
And Miami can be the New Atlantis.
All these forces of nature are just causing trouble.
They are just a rabble of hippies - don't listen to them." RR 2022
NO FISH, NO FUTURE
On Monday, November 21, at 8:00 hrs performers from Ocean Rebellion wearing ‘Fish Heads’ and pinstripe suits made a last minute plea to the UK Government to use their power and influence to end the war on fish. The ‘Fish Heads’ stood in pools of blood, dead fish outside the front entrance of DEFRA. The ‘Fish Heads’ carried briefcases with WAR ON FISH, ECOCIDE emblazoned on the side. ... See MoreSee Less

‼️ The South West says NO to Barclays ‼️
Rebels across the south west have yet again been rising up against Barclays bank, telling them to put life before profit and stop banking on Climate Crisis!
From Cornwall to Somerset, let’s keep the pressure on Barclays to DIVEST from fossil fuels! Remind them we arent going anywhere until their dirty hands are out of big oil & dirty investment.
Barclays has been Europes biggest investor in fossil fuels since the Paris Climate Agreement, they are the 10th biggest funder of fossil fuel expansion in the world.
Not only that, but they’re also putting 300 Million Dollars into the Rampal Power Plant in Bangladesh, threatening the worlds largest mangrove forest, a project that could cause 6000 pre mature deaths and 24000 babies at a low birth weight.
Pipelines and deforestation, Barclays are truly evil, and the South West says no more!
