XR – Reclaim the BBC
Extinction Rebellion – 1st demand – “The Government must tell the truth about the climate and wider ecological emergency, reverse inconsistent policies and work alongside the media to communicate with citizens.”
For too long the BBC has either ignored or downplayed the climate emergency – Let’s reclaim OUR BBC to tell the truth on climate change.
Join the thousands of people who are taking action to hold our institutions to account. The medias complicity in failing to address the nature of this crises can no longer be tolerated.
Meet at the steps of All Souls, Langham Place, from 10am with a rally and civil disobedience to follow from 11am.
Bring drums, pots and pans – We are standing up to hold our media to account, and we will be heard!
The days events will include a vigil for all those that have tragically lost their lives as a result of climate change – please bring candles.
We are inviting all those who have been arrested in the past few weeks to join us, and tell their stories. We want to hear from those that have taken action with us.
We also want to hear from any students who have taken part in the Friday’s For Future School strikes. If you have participated, please come and share your story.
We are many, and we will be more…
