Haringey’s Draft Walking and Cycling Plan

Haringey 10-year blueprint to encourage active travel and create safe, pollution-free, people-focused neighbourhoods has been launched for consultation. High-quality walking routes, protected cycle lanes and Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTNs) are among a raft of measures included in the Council’s draft Walking and Cycling Action Plan. The document sets out a comprehensive, long-term vision to make walking and cycling natural choices, successfully tackling obesity, improving air quality and radically cutting carbon emissions from motor traffic. The consultation on this runs until 10th January 2022. https://www.haringey.gov.uk/parking-roads-and-travel/travel/haringeys-transport-strategy/draftwcp

Saturday 11th December

Muswell Hill Extinction Rebellion “die in”

I’m writing to you from Extinction Rebellion, Muswell Hill. I’m Holly, one of the Coordinators and I wanted to reach out to you about our upcoming action in Wood Green.
On Saturday 11th December we will be holding a street performance called a ‘die in’, where we will dance to music and then lie on the ground to symbolise death by climate crisis, you can see a video of our last die in here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tc3LR_DAmFE&t=194s
We will also be chatting to people about the climate issues and asking people to join our group. The aim of this action is to highlight climate injustice and raise awareness of what we can do to fight for justice for all. The local press will be covering this event and we want to make as big an impact as possible!
As we’ve never done an action in the Wood Green area before, we wanted to reach out to local groups and ensure that we’re being as inclusive as possible and at the action, appealing to as diverse a range of people as we can. One thing our group want to work on is improving our diversity and including the wider community within Haringey.
Therefore, I’d like to invite you to take part in our action, whether it’s being involved in the planning process and sharing ideas with us or just coming to see us on the day.
We’d love to hear from you, then you can get in touch via this email address or on 07540 792788.
Thanks! Holly  XRMuswellHill@protonmail.com
