Climate crisis protests
Quakers from the Mid Thames area took part in Extinction Rebellion protests in London over the past two weeks, highlighting the risks posed by the climate crisis. Here’s a personal view from John: “Like the April rebellion, the impressive things were the number of people of all ages coming together, the strength of humanity and mutual support, the peaceful, passionate determination that led so many to stand together patiently, and the imagination and creativity of getting the messages across. It’s about such big threats, we need the humour and humanity too.”
This is just one way that we put into action the commitment of Quakers throughout Britain to become a low-carbon, sustainable community.
