It gives a very clear explanation of the first aim of Extinction Rebellion.

Citizens Assemblies do seem a very good idea. Worked in Ireland for the Gay Marriage and Abortion Laws.

I went to one of their recent rallies and everyone was so well-behaved. Thinking back to protest marches in the 60s I didn’t quite know if I ought to be impressed or disappointed.

I did think about getting myself arrested as a photo of the police hustling away an elderly lady with a walking stick would help make the point that it’s not just school children who are supporting this.

Next time perhaps 🤨

Thank you WW and Anja. Thought about it myself Anja but I would need a chair.

To other GNrs I would say, it is all going to be kicking off again in a week's time, so might be a good idea to acquaint yourselves with some facts. smile
