Upcoming Event: “Show the Love” Fossil Free #Manchester Sat 13th Feb

Fossil Free Greater Manchester (contact them at fossilfreegm@gmail.com)

“are planning a few hours of valentines fossil free action for the weekend on Saturday from 10am-2pm (weather and footfall dependent) to coincide with the national Show The Love action by Fossil Free UK.

We are going to start the day by meeting at 10am at Green Fish to sort out any last minute things with an aim to head off at 11am. We are going to walk the dinosaur over to St. Ann’s Square and maybe move across to Exchange Square depending on foot traffic etc.

Since the theme of the action is valentines we have decided to make some green heart postcards which we want to ask members of the public to write on explaining why they want to see GMPF divest and we will be sending these on to GMPF. There is also going to be petitioning and leafleting to do so the more the merrier to try and get the message out to as many people as possible! If you are coming along and get any pictures or want to make any live comments on social media be sure to use #divest and #showthelove

Once we have spread enough fossil free lovin’ we will walk the dinosaur back over to Green Fish and then everyone is welcome to join us for drinks (location to be decided by general consensus)

If anyone would like to help out with making the postcards, banners, placards, etc then feel free to join us at Green Fish from 2pm onwards on Friday where we will be having a crafts session to prepare for the Saturday. Just let us know if you are dropping in.

Hope to see many of you there! Tell your friends too!”
