Climate Change: Why we are heading for extinction and what to do about it.
This public talk, run by members of the Rising Up Network, will explain why we are entering a climate apocalypse. Based upon award winning PhD research on effective campaign mobilisation, we will outline the political response necessary to maximise the chances of avoiding the extinction we are presently racing towards.
This talk is being held in towns and cities all around the country in preparation for large scale civil disobedience activities this autumn.
Rising Up is a growing and diverse network of activists and campaigners who are involved in nonviolent direct action campaigns on social justice and environmental issues. We are coordinating a national nonviolent action against the UK government this November to demand emergency action in response to the threat of ecological collapse.
The talk includes Q&A.
A Nonviolent Direct Action Training Session to create a local affinity group is presently being organised to follow this talk.
This event is free but we will be grateful for any donations to cover the cost of room hire.
