Divestment campaign public outreach action
Saturday 15th February @ 13:00 - 15:30
We’re going to get the public switched on to how fossil fuel investments are putting their planet, their services and their pensions at risk. With a combination of ideas from the Rebel Assembly and previous actions, we’re going to wake people up, get their attention and use the opportunity to engage the public with leaflets/chat/sign-ups.
The idea is to be set up in two locations in the city centre (twice as much engagement), so we’ll need as many Rebels as possible! We need Rebels to take a role in the action itself, plus Rebels to do the public engagement (this is us pushing our comfort zones in the emergency – we’ll get you briefed up in advance) and we’ll need Rebels to support the sign-up stations too.
The briefing will be at 1pm and the action will last for a couple of hours, or maybe a bit longer if Rebels are up for it. Details will be confirmed – so keep your eyes peeled for updates!
If you want to help prepare the placards and props for the campaign, we have an art prep event on the 5th Feb: https://www.facebook.com/events/217796919249935/
