The event is part of the global protest at the lack of local, regional and national action to mitigate the causes of climate change. The rebellion objectives have been well documented in the media and perhaps you and some your group members have been participating in recent London action. The objectives are:
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.
The Government must enact legally binding policy measures to reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2025 and to reduce consumption levels.
A national Citizen’s Assembly to oversee the changes, as part of creating a democracy fit for purpose.
Please do circulate this to your members to let them know about the event so that as many as possible Canterbury and surrounding areas environmentally concerned citizens can participate.
Together we hope to demonstrate the scale of our collective demand to have a new and bolder approach to tackling the causes of climate change
