NEWS

Both Muswell Hill Sustainability Group and Haringey Extinction Rebellion (XR) had stalls at the Wonderful Muswell Festival in Muswell Hill Broadway in early December. XR had lots of people, many dressed up with flags and banners, giving out badges, XR stickers and leaflets to all the passers-by. It all created a lot of interest especially from young people and school kids. Lots of XR posters have recently been on display in Muswell Hill, for instance, on this boarded-up shop.

Green on the Screen had a very successful end of year social and film show at Hornsey Vale Community Centre just before Christmas with about 50 people attending. Marilyn Collins, a local artist, presented her film “The Chthonic and the Sublime” which tells the story of local and wider London community groups’ campaigns for the restoration of their local rivers. It illustrates the impact on flooding, river health, biodiversity, water quality and the contribution living rives can make to the quality of life in the city. Local campaigns featured include Lordship Rec, Chestnut Park and Queen’s Wood. See the film https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXaMG2Y7h0U
Rikki, a local journalist and filmmaker from Real Media then presented a selection of 2019 changemaking environmental activism videos. https://realmedia.press/author/rikkimedia/
Proceeds from the evening went to Winter Night Shelter.
