#Nogoingbacksundays : take action!

We may be in lockdown but we can still take action and we can do it together, albeit from a distance. Rebels from across the south west have been taking part in #NoGoingBackSundays in order to let our government know that we cannot go back to business as usual – a better world is possible.

We would love for you to join in. Here’s how:

1. Make a sign – A3ish size, saying what you want to make a green and socially just future. See photos for some examples if you are stuck for what to say.

2. Make a stand – Wear a face-mask and stand alone or ‘alone together’ with others in your area (socially distanced) in silent protest with your banner. Remember to get a photo!

3. Share your photo – On Sundays at 10am upload your photo to social media using the hashtags: #NOGOINGBACKSUNDAYS #NOGOINGBACK. If you don’t have social media that is fine, you can email them to: nogoingbacksundays@gmail.com and we’ll be delighted to put them on our social media.
