THE BIG ONE! - Extinction Rebellion Warwick District
 
 

Extinction Rebellion Warwick District

We are facing an unprecedented global climate emergency.

The government has failed to protect us.

To survive, it's going to take everything we've got.

Join the Rebellion

On the 21 April 2023 Extinction Rebellion Warwick District (XRWD) helped The Big One fulfil its name, with our biggest ever turn-out.  We organised transport for a bus-load of concerned citizens from Warwick and surrounding areas and arrived just across the river from Parliament around 10AM on Friday to join the event.

Over 200 groups and movements, including Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth and Global Justice Now, gathered to "Unite to Survive" and support the four-day action from the 21st to the 24th April 2023. The groups came together to demand urgent action on climate change and ecological collapse. The protest took place throughout Westminster and at the Houses of Parliament, with the aim of putting pressure on politicians to take immediate action.

We were happy to be there and do the work, alongside thousands of others, hearing amazing music, speeches from novelist Zadie Smith, Caroline Lucas MP and Rupert Read among others, and marching around Westminster, staging a die-in on Earth Day.

NOT YET RECYCLED?

If you're like us, then you will be fed up with buying products from the supermarket with those dreaded words 'not yet recycled' on the packaging.

Our rebels came up with a great idea and we want you to join us! Please save this 'not yet recycled' packaging and bring it to us (maybe collect it in a separate box next to your normal recyclingđź’ˇ).

There will be a drop off point at every Local Group Meeting.

Watch this space for what we are going to do with it! Be assured it will be fun and it'll relieve any guilt you might have, now that you don't have to throw it away.
