An invitation from XR Luton

Climate protest group Extinction Rebellion (XR) have announced a change of tactics for 2022. On the 1st of January the national leadership issued a ‘new year’s resolution‘ to “temporarily shift away from public disruption as a primary tactic.” Road blocks and disruptive stunts will be put to one side for this year, with a focus on participation and unity instead.

The centrepiece of this new approach will be a gathering billed as The Big One, in the diary for Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd of April. XR is hoping to rally 100,000 people in Parliament Square in London in support of faster action on the climate emergency. The event will be inclusive and family friendly. “Gathering at the Houses of Parliament day after day in large numbers means we can leave the locks, glue and paint behind and instead demonstrate faith in a critical mass of people to create a moment that’s impossible to ignore.”

The Luton branch of Extinction Rebellion will be supporting the action, and they are inviting anyone who would like to find out more to join them this weekend: “There will be a social meeting on Saturday 11th February at 11.00am at Youthscape in the centre of town. Please come and meet us and talk about how we can deal with the future.
