End Fossil Fuels – 15th-17th September

XR Oxford is taking part in the Global Fight to End Fossil Fuels next weekend in a series of actions in Oxford and London.

Friday 15th September

Outside HSBC, 12-2pm, come and be part of a national action aimed primarily against HSBC funding for fossil fuels. We will have HSBC stickers from XR UK, leaflets explaining their involvement in fossil fuel funding and our Barclays leaflets. Do come and help with outreach, handing leaflets to passersby and talking to them about the climate emergency and fossil fuels. Ask them to use the QR code for more information about what they can do, and how to sign up to XR Oxford. The more rebels the better.

We are also encouraging people to join a Climate Strike organised by an amazing young activist at Bonn Square, 9am. If you plan to join, please let us know so that we can pass on the message.

Saturday 16th September

Oxford rebels will be joining the march in London,12-2pm, Grosvenor Gardens. This will be a family-friendly march – bring placards and banners. Join the Telegram group here.

For those who can’t make it to London:

  • Outreach in Cornmarket, 1-3pm, talking to the public, and giving them posters they can display at home. If you can help with the outreach, please sign up to the rota – or just turn up on the day.
  • Alongside this, a families action, sitting in a circle with placards, as part of the global Mothers Rebellion (Cornmarket, 2-3pm).
  • After this, people are warmly invited to go on to the screening of ‘Walking on Thin Ice’ at the Phoenix Picturehouse at 3.30pm (tickets), which will be followed by a panel discussion, and a walk in Port Meadow.

Sunday 17th September

Mothers Rebellion will be back in London, 11:30am-1pm at the Science Museum (Facebook event). All peaceful protestors welcome – this action is inclusive for all those who care about children’s future in a time of climate chaos regardless of age, gender or whether they have children of their own.

Please join us for one or more of these actions, and amplify the message: Fossil fuel exploitation must end now.
