Extinction Rebellion, United Kingdom, in the lead up to the general election:

30th Nov-11th Dec – Election Rebellion: Twelve Days of Crisis

Extinction Rebellion’s ‘12 Days of Crisis’ will see nonviolent direct action taking place from 30 November until the eve of Election Day

The “Election Rebellion” will urge all political parties to make the Climate and Ecological Emergency their top priority

With the help of bikes, bees and bulldozers, the 12 days of creative action will see rebels across the UK raising the alarm about the climate crisis

Election Rebellion aims to highlight our vulnerabilities as a direct result of climate and environmental breakdown – including food and water shortages, flooding, increased pressure on the NHS and emergency services, and threats to our security

Greenpeace Evict OMV action, New Plymouth, 2nd – 4th December

WHAT’S PLANNED FOR THIS SUMMER?

Introvert or extrovert, rule-breaker or cake-baker, we need all hands on deck to take on our last big oil opponent: OMV.

We’re disrupting OMV’s business as usual with a cheeky, peaceful protest at the OMV office in New Plymouth, starting on the 2nd December with activities continuing until the 4th.

Whether you can make it for one day or three, we’d love to see you there. There are roles for everyone, from the frontline to making sure people are comfy and fed. We’ll provide accommodation, food and a full briefing so you feel prepared and confident. It’ll be a festival atmosphere as we celebrate the end of oil in Aotearoa New Zealand.

If you can’t make it to Taranaki, there are local activities showing the scale of resistance to OMV all across the country!

    An interesting wee piece on Sth Dunedin IRT CC events. I have great memories of that area while staying in Central Battery, running to work to KAH, the Ocean Beach Hotel, those bloody steam trains behind central battery blow smoke etc in though the open windows and of course the people especially when one was he is No1 Highland Dress as they want to chat or buy you a drink from the non alcoholic kind to the alcoholic kind.

      • Exkiwiforces 1.1.1

        That sound's like me with my PTSD and Major Depressed Disorder on a good and bad day without CC throwed in.

      • Ian 1.1.2

        we are looking at another record year for grass growth. This slight increase in CO2 is making my bottom line look fantastic.Those glasshouse guys that pump in CO2 know something.

    The latest report from climate scientists is pretty scary stuff. Think the climate "iceberg" is clearly in sight, but are the collective skippers of the human Titanic ready and willing to forgo BAU and adjust course?

    • Exkiwiforces 2.1

      Yes, was read that in this morning Oz newspaper on the front page. It's not good either way if we even stop what are doing atm or even start reducing some of our activities causing CC as we may be already at the start or already in the tipping zone.
