EXTINCTION Rebellion protestors will be outside County Hall this week to wish Cornwall Council an unhappy third birthday to its declaration of a climate crisis.
January 22nd marks the third anniversary for Cornwall Council’s declaration that a Climate Emergency was declared.
Extinction Rebellion, as well as other environmental and community groups, will be protesting at County Hall’s full council meeting on Tuesday 18th at 8.30am.
The messages will read: “Unhappy Third Birthday Cornwall Council”
“Three Years of hot air, climate action is now”
HIGH HOPES – Flashback to Extinction Rebellion in celebration of the Cornwall Council’s declaration a Climate Emergency three year ago
Protestors will highlight missed opportunities, decisions and actions taken in the past three years by the council that are inconsistent with a climate emergency declaration. They also plan to highlight the need for Cornwall to become net zero by 2030. Protestors will also highlight areas where the council can and should work.
Officers apologize for new flights to Cornwall decision
The activists say this will be an eye-catching and theatrical event with a giant birthday cake, unhappy birthday cards to councillors, giant gift boxes with solutions written on them and unhappy birthday hats.
Protestors will sing a “Unhappy birthday” song about climate change.
To symbolize the loss of life caused by climate change, there will be a Die In.
