Gathering the Whirlwind - A Summer Meeting


From The Argus:

"Saturday’s festival, called Gathering the Whirlwind saw guerilla gardening, tree climbing and banner painting workshops.

A spokesman said: “ This recruitment drive was organised so that the group can stage bigger and better acts of civil disobedience locally and also grow numbers for the next major international action, centred around London, in the autumn.”

The group is hoping to mobilise 10,000 members in Brighton and Hove.

Brighton Extinction Rebellion helped campaign towards Brighton and Hove City Council declaring a climate emergency last December.

The local branch is made up of parents, teachers, doctors, business owners, hospital workers, academics, creative industry workers, council employees, office workers, retail staff, tradespeople, jobseekers, artists, pensioners and students united by a common concern about a lack of action over climate change."
