something very right if she's picking up things like this
That's a grand leaflet she's designed
i think she skipped school on friday for the demo. shes only 14, so likely soemthing picked up. it is scarily reminiscent of the stuff i used to churn out on the union photocopier after hours all those years ago
This is an interesting phenomena from the Friday school strikes, I guess.
That they normalised political and protest engagement (I know EMA and Uni fees in 2010 protest did but it was a smaller movement]
I was just with some 13 year olds in Dorset and they go to the strikes in Exeter - they were *really* well informed about many issues despite living in a tiny village*
*I know they have the internet even in Dorset and can find out about things but the excitement of going to a city and going on a protest felt compelling and attractive, it seemed.
He seems pretty sound
Independent Legal Observers withdrawing from ER over concerns
Statement on Extinction Rebellion | Green and Black Cross
Been covered already in this thread
Chatting with a friend who was involved in xr court support the other day.
Apparently some ppl in xr believed that gbc had just had a hissy fit and deserted them for no good reason, and thought that they were being paid.
Someone’s been putting some utter bullshit about the place... GBC are hard working volunteers who were completely swamped by xr who didn’t even donate anything to their org for providing legal trainings and legal support. Their statement on why they’ve withdrawn from providing further is clear.
& I can’t help but see a parallel with that ^ and the tendency to flip out at any criticism however well founded, or constructively phrased, it is.
ER infiltrated and disrupted the Chancellor's speech at Mansion House tonight. Dressed up all nice and everything.
But it's Secretary of State Mark Fields reaction that's going to be the big news.
What a vile cunt. He can be contacted on Twitter
Mark Field MP (@MarkFieldUK) on Twitter
Oh he's one of those 'I'll teach you' kind of cunts...Fucking hell, feel very smashy watching that.
The big news about this shitheads unacceptable violence also includes references to this tweet from just last month:
If he had genuinely thought she were armed he would have floored her. Total tosser.
How come ER were inside Glastonbury, would have thought they would be outside protesting about its carbon footprint, resource usage, etc, even trying to close it down.
Tea & cake with Emily & Mick?
As any festival goer will tell you, it is better to have people in the tent pissing out than outside pissing in. That's why they were inside.
Well they let Miley Cyrus in
Prepare to be un amazed
London Green Left Blog: The Socialist Workers Party is Infiltrating Extinction Rebellion
Nasty group of people best avoided by all.
Does it even count as infiltration, really?
This bit was quite funny:
"Strategic positions" - what, like by the exits? Did they send in a recon squad first? Or did they just sit on vacant chairs?
Also, from the comments it seems the writer was expelled from XR. I didn't know that was even possible.
They've shut down Fleet Street with a boat.
Also Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow and Leeds, apparently.
Done east dulwich station overnight. Poor staff were in the early scrubbing away with solvents to clear the worst of it off the seating
Eta my offspring have denied it but they were still in bed when I left this morning
Latest from the BBC - Extinction Rebellion block city centre roads
Somewhere between 1-200 people blocking up the centre of Cardiff. Roads in town are lovely and quite
Still at Fleet Street.
8.40 this morning roads into Cardiff city centre were gridlocked, just my luck that I had to take my car into work this morning. Found a way round it to get to the Bay though.
They have been given huge funding by U.S philanthropists/banking trusts, etc, including a Getty one.
