So, putting aside the putrid and worse-than-useless climate change “conference’ on Monday 8th July (more about that in another blog post soon), there are three events that you will want to put in your diary.
Weds 10th July, 9.30.
I think in Albert Square – contact Extinction Rebellion Manchester for more info. Attend Full Council meeting at which this climate emergency declaration will be debated. Please, if you haven’t already signed the petition, sign it here. Share it with your friends. Climate Emergency Manchester will be continuing to collect signatures so it can put forward our motion at a council meeting near the end of the year. It needs 4000 signatures from people who live, work or study within Manchester City Council’s boundaries
Wednesday 17th July, 1pm. Climate Emergency Manchester, meeting at the Waterhouse Pub, Princes St, before going over to the Town Hall extension for the Neighbourhoods and Environment Scrutiny Committee meeting from 2pm to 4pm. Climate change is, in every sense, on the agenda. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info or if you cannot make the meeting but want to be kept informed. If you want to get involved in Climate Emergency Manchester (and no, you never have to come to a single soul-sucking meeting to be usefully and happily involved), then there’s a contact form here.
Friday 19th July 12.30 Pension Fund action
All climate groups in Greater Manchester have been urged to support this protest outside the AGM of the Fund on Friday 19th July gathering from 12.30 onwards. Guardsman Tony Downes House is just about 100 yards along from Droylesden Tram stop. The Facebook event is at https://www.facebook.com/events/905001223172480/?active_tab=about
