Sat 30 October 2021 3:00 PM - 6:15 PM
Deep Water
Location: Oracle Riverside

This action on the eve of COP26 is to raise awareness of the flood risks across the UK. It is felt that this effect of the Climate Emergency will resonate with the public especially in Reading, built on 2 rivers.

This is not an XR branded event, although initiated by XR. All groups, organisations and individuals are welcome. (No alcohol, drugs or violence please).

Meet at the Oracle Riverside from 3pm. on Saturday 30th .The finish is around 6.15. Even if you can only join us for a few minutes of this time we welcome the support.

We will be talking to members of the public and leafleting. At 5.58 we will hold a 2 minute silence for victims of flooding. At 6, the bells of the Minster church will ring and we will make as much noise as we can. Please bring percussion instruments, whistles or pots and pans to bang.

Any questions please email XRReading@gmail.com

COP26 Climate March In London
Location: Thread Needle Street , Bank London

The UN Climate Change Conference, COP26, will take place in Glasgow in late October - November 2021. As the host, these negotiations are a crucial opportunity for the UK Government to lead global ambition on climate action. 

 

The COP26 Coalition is calling for a Global Day of Action (GDA) on Saturday 6th November, during the middle weekend of the talks. It is crucial that we get people and voices out on the streets to show unity and send a message to those in power that we need climate action NOW!

Join with Berkshire Greenpeace on the London Climate March to Call for Climate Action at COP26

 

There will be a flagship national demonstration in Glasgow and large-scale regional demonstrations in other major cities, and local and international demonstrations in towns across the UK and the world. Each UK demonstration will be timed to assemble at 12pm, start at 1pm and rally for speeches at 3pm.
