Return to Ancoats (hosted by Extinction Rebellion Manchester)
We ask you to join us on the 14th of February as we join with Youth Strike for Climate movement at St Peter’s Square and then march together towards Ancoats. We are returning to the former retail park in Ancoats to remind the council of our presence, our demands and remind them of not only our vision for the land but the vision and needs of the local community in Manchester.
In order to minimize damage to our cities in light of the current crisis we must build them with nature and resilience in mind. Turning this place into offices and carparks is the exact opposite of what our government councils need to be doing if they’re at all serious about the climate emergency and the health of it’s residents.
We will be marching from St Peter’s square from 13:30 in solidarity the youth strikers, in a low risk event focused on engaging the public and local residents.
We have some gardening workshops and talks happening to help give a feel for the value and potential of a space like this!
We welcome everyone and anyone who cares about community and wants to connect with those who do, this is a perfect place to build.
We’ll see you there!
