NOT BUSINESS AS USUAL: XR Fashion Action North declares its rebellion against fashion!

NOT BUSINESS AS USUAL:
Fashion retailers are set to re-open on Monday 12th of April. We do not accept the fashion industry returning to it’s ‘normal’ levels of socially and ecologically damaging mass production and consumption.

WHO ARE WE?
We are XR Fashion Action North, a new XR branch rebelling against the toxic fashion industry in the North of England.

WHAT’S HAPPENING ON 12TH APRIL?
We invite you to join us for a day of action in Manchester City Centre (actions also happening in York and London). This is our first action as XR Fashion Action North, so please come show your support!

We will host a Guerrilla Repair workshop where the public can learn how to mend the clothes they already own, and more about how terrible the fashion industry is for people and planet from our guest speakers. So please bring something you would like to repair or remake, or just an open mind to understand more about fashion! We will also have a regenerative guided meditation.

There will be the opportunity to take some direct action against fashion stores on the day if you stop by our Guerrilla Repair, at the top of the undercover area by the Arndale, on Market Street. You will see us with our banners!

REDUCE, REUSE, REFUSE. REPAIR, REWEAR, REBEL!

Covid-19 precautions:
Wear a mask, bring hand sanitizer, keep distance, and don’t gather in groups bigger than six.

GET INVOLVED:
Join us on Zoom on 06/04/21 at 6pm to get involved in the organising of this action!
