Upcoming event: Trees not cars 17th August, 1pm #Manchester

Long-term observers of Manchester City Council are shocked, shocked to find that the recent declaration of a climate emergency turns out to be empty rhetoric rather than the radical, participatory and effective action that the City Council and its figleaf chums have been conducting for ten years. Oh yes.

One example of this empty rhetoric is the plan to turn a building site into… a car park. Because, you know, more fossil fuel infrastructure is definitely the way to solve a problem of too much fossil fuel burning. Oh yes.

Rather than waste time with powerless scrutiny committees, which are ignored/patronised by the Executive, a bunch of people, under the banner trees not cars, are taking some direct action.
