Rescue Boat at the XR Northern Rebellion (hosted by Stand Up To Racism Manchester )
Climate change is set to create millions of environmental refugees – people forced from their homes and land – by rising temperatures, sea level change and extreme weather events. As a solidarity action at the XR Northern Rebellion at the end of August in central Manchester we will bring a ‘Rescue Boat’. The Rescue Boat will part of the Northern Rebellion. It will send the message – Climate Refugees Welcome Here! Fight racism and climate chaos! Our aim is to fill the Rescue Boat with aid for refugees – to be distributed by Care4Calais to child refugees in northern France.
A fire fighter who rescued drowning refugees in the Mediterranean is being charged with ‘people smuggling’. Many XR Rebels face criminal charges after taking direct action. Saving lives is not a crime, just as taking action to save the planet is not a crime. We need to save both people and planet.
Over four days Extinction Rebellion will be organising a Northern Rebellion: a series of Rebel protests, a Rebel festival, a Rebel school, and much more.
Updates and more details will follow. See Facebook event page.
