Public Climate Change Meeting In Scarborough

Published by Karen Liu at 12:08pm 20th March 2019.

There is a public meeting for people to find out more about climate change in Scarborough.

It will be held in the main meeting room at the Railway Men's Club at the station at 7.45pm tomorrow (Thursday 21st March).

The event has been organised by Extinction Rebellion Scarborough.

A spokesperson said:

"The event follows the format of meetings that have been held all over the UK, and will include a talk/presentation from a national XR speaker, plus a chance to discuss relevant topics and give your feedback.

You will also be invited to share what you are prepared to do in response to the climate crisis - but this is entirely your choice.

Extinction Rebellion (UK) is part of an international movement and has three broad demands of our government:

1. 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

2. The Government must enact legally binding policy measures to reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2025 and to reduce consumption levels

3. A national Citizen's Assembly to oversee the changes, as part of creating a democracy fit for purpose.

If you broadly support these aims and want to find out more, please come to our meeting in Scarborough and invite your friends and family.

The meeting is open to anyone aged 14 and above, with young people under 18 advised to bring a responsible adult (this is a policy of the venue).

For more information about Extinction Rebellion (UK), please visit the website (https://rebellion.earth) or follow on Twitter (@ExtinctionR).

We are a fairly broad group of people from many political backgrounds (and none) who work together, organising local actions and discussing priorities.

As we are also a relatively new group, we are constantly evolving and seeking new ways of doing things in order to mobilise the greatest number of people to rise to the challenge.

We also co-operate with other Extinction Rebellion groups as and when appropriate and expect to be part of next month's national week of action (starting April 15).

"We hope to see you on Thursday, but if you can't make it, please keep in touch."
