Extinction Rebellion to gather in Newark Market Place Saturday to raise awareness of climate emergency
Activists from Extinction Rebellion, including a samba band, will gather in Newark Market Place on Saturday to raise awareness of the climate emergency.
Activists from Extinction Rebellion's Newark and Sherwood and Nottingham groups will be in the market place from 1.30pm.
The Nottingham Samba Band (The Outlaws) will be playing and activists will be on hand to talk to the public to raise awareness of the climate emergency and the need for urgent action.
The event is part of a national summer of action ahead of the COP 26, the United Nations Climate Change Conference in November, which the UK is hosting.
A talk will be held in Newark Library on Tuesday, 6pm to 7pm, for anyone who wants to find out more about the climate crisis and how Extinction Rebellion is campaigning to stop global warming.
Extension Rebellion said the talk outlines the true extent of the climate and nature emergency which was recently highlighted by Sir David Attenborough who said that the crisis is the biggest challenge faced by humanity and threatens our very civilisation.
