Read on to be inspired to take part in The BIG One – four days of sustained, mass activism
The is a lot to know, but rest assured there are plenty of familiar faces from XR Bristol and beyond going to be there.
Here’s a rough plan in brief
Friday 21 April – The day we have all been waiting for.
Stop Aviation Expansion march and rally
We will be accompanied by the more than 400 strong Climate Choir, the Red Rebels, Rhythms/Samba Band, Landing Crew, and airport expansion resistance groups from across the country.
We will march down Whitehall then via the Department for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities and onto The Department For Transport we will be joined by speakers, and other transport related action groups.
Saturday 22 April – Come as your favourite animal or plant for the Biodiversity March.
Bristol rebels will meet at 11:30 at Church House Great Smith Street, then go to Westminster Abbey where marchers will gather from 12.30.
The march will be led by XR Rhythms, with periods of silence, birdsong and sounds of nature along the way.
Finale ~ Die-in 14.45–15.00 Spread out and lie down in silence, for a symbolic spectacle.
Sunday 23 April – Bristol rebels will meet at 09:30 at Tower Hill Tube to help with a banner drop along the Marathon route – providing inspiration for 50,000 runners!
Monday 24 April – in the morning from 7.00 there will be people’s pickets at Department for Transport and Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities with speakers.
