Next weekend there are three actions – unfortunately the calendar clash means you won’t be able to make it to all three, but hopefully one will suit you best!
Farnborough Airport – Flying To Extinction
Europe’s busiest private jet hub is looking to expand to allow 40% more capacity, flying in the face of the Paris agreement. Join XRUK and partner groups as we march to the main gate of Farnborough Airport to demand an end to private flights and expansion! This is a family friendly event, please bring your flags & placards with your message to the airport!
Nearest stations are Farnborough Main, Farnborough North and North Camp.
Bring your drums, bells and shakers! Join this Telegram chat for drummers.
Stop Rosebank Protest and Outreach
Let’s keep up the pressure on the government over the new Rosebank oil field, approved last Autumn in spite of overwhelming opposition from experts. A successful campaign forced Shell to pull out of the Cambo oilfield – now let’s STOP ROSEBANK.
We’ll be in Cornmarket 12-2pm on Saturday 27th with a large skeleton and some giant roses, talking to passersby and encouraging them to support the campaign and to join XR. We need people to hold banners and placards and to help with outreach. Bring placards, flags and your voices for chanting!
Greenpeace Project Climate Vote
Greenpeace has launched a bold plan to recruit a million climate voters by the General Election, to influence party policies and drive climate up the political agenda. XR Oxford supports the project, and a few of us have joined doorknocking sessions to collect pledges already.
For the next weekend of action, Greenpeace are organising two sessions: the afternoon of Saturday 27 Jan, and the morning of Sunday 28. Please consider getting involved! The sessions have a great sense of camaraderie (you canvass in pairs), and the response on the doorsteps is very positive.
Before joining a session, you’ll need to do the Greenpeace training (every Wednesday at 6pm – you can sign up here). This will get you set up on the Greenpeace system. We also have a WhatsApp chat for XR people getting involved – if you’d like to be added, email email@example.com.
