Friday 21st April was an amazing day of XR organised activity. Day one of four days was dedicated to pickets of every major government department.
Under the banner Unite to Survive more than 200 organisations came together to form a ‘movement of movements’. The demand was for elected representatives do all and everything necessary to act now on the climate emergency, affecting across so many inter-connected issues at home and globally.
TPNS was invited to make a presentation (hyperlink) at the XR peace picket outside the Ministry of Defence. A large crowd gathered on the lawn in front of the MOD building to hear about the scale of the impact of military emissions on climate change; action at UNFCCC and COP; the link between military spending and emissions; and why present day foreign and defence policy- making is not fit for purpose in this era of climate chaos.
