Dear Sustainable Haringey supporter,
As you know, the impact of the pandemic has halted all sorts of environmental events and activities but some have been continuing online. However Extinction Rebellion nationwide protests start on 1st September. An enourmous amount of actions are planned, and everyone is welcome to participate to whatever level they are willing and able.
For more info: https://rebellionderby.earth/we-want-to-live-uk-rebellion-1-september-2020
Let us know about other events coming up and important news that needs sharing.

EVENTS

Friday 28th August 11am
Muswell Hill Extinction Rebellion action

Here’s a message from our friends at Muswell Hill XR:

MHXR, (Muswell Hill Extinction Rebellion), are holding an action in Muswell Hill on Friday the 28th. We would love any or all of you to join us. We will meet at St James’ Square at 11:00 and have a quick session learning 2 simple songs. We process around Muswell Hill dressed in black holding small placards saying  WE WANT TO LIVE, singing the songs. We will be holding 2mt rope or scarves between each other to make sure we are socially distanced.
At every crossing, pelican and zebra, we will lie silently on the crossing in the road for 5 minutes. If it is raining we will stand quietly then proceed to the next crossing singing. We will end up back at St James’ Sq where we will hear some fine words delivered by three Muswell Hill XR troupers and where I hope the spirit will stir us to raise our voices once more in song, (the same songs we will by then know intimately).
The climate crisis is more important than ever and action locally and nationally will remind politicians that concern about climate is at a record high and that they must act. Extinction  Rebellion 3rd uprising begins on 1st September. This action is part of a national introduction to the uprising.
Do come join us, and let us know by emailing info@mhsgroup.org if you’re intending to come.

Sunday 13th Sept ~ 11am to 4pm

St Ann’s Redevelopment Trust AGM

Due to the coronavirus, the StART directors have taken the decision to hold this year’s AGM online, rather than risk anyone’s health by holding the event in person, and to help us manage the process the AGM will be limited to members only.
