Bridport Rebellion Day (Extinction Rebellion)

9 March 11.00
Buckydoo Square

(Not organised by TTB) 
"A day of Peaceful Direct Action, including Singing and music, Samba band blocking roads for 5-10 minutes, flash mob choir popping up across town, symbolic die-ins, silent meditations, peoples podium, speakers and poets.
Bring banners and Noise makers, All Welcome, Dress to Impress!!!
We will no longer stand idly by and allow the destruction of all we love.
We are raging against this madness and our hearts are breaking.
We have a right and duty to rebel in the face of this tyranny of idiocy - in the face of this planned collective suicide.
We are going to act and in acting together we will overcome.
Join us and share this event..."
Mission
"We are facing an unprecedented global emergency, the planet is in crisis and we are in the midst of a mass extinction bigger and faster than the one that killed the dinosaurs. Scientists believe we have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown. The Earth’s atmosphere is already over 1°C warmer than pre-industrial levels and the chance of staying below the 1.5°C limit set in the Paris Agreement is tiny. Projections show we are on course for 3 degrees of warming and probably much higher.
We and our children will face unimaginable horrors as a result of floods, wildfires, extreme weather, crop failures and the inevitable breakdown of society when the pressures are so great. We are unprepared for the danger our future holds.
The time for denial is over – we know the truth about climate change. It is time to act."
