Other News - June 2018

History of Activism. We shared information about Beatrice’s video project and Shaun passed on suggestions for what we could do to celebrate our successes - e.g. Big Ask Campaign and solar panels.

BaseCamp. Richard gave some feedback on the main messages. Plenty on all major campaigning issues: fracking, air pollution, bees, plastics etc. Links between social justice and environmental justice were emphasised (and the rich have a much bigger carbon footprint than the poor); need to give strong messages e.g.  awareness we have “a climate emergency”

The Sharrow Festival  - focus on Fracking and Plastics. We still need people to sign up for 7th July this year -  https://doodle.com/poll/hg9m8y9p9whw73uc

Grange Landfill. We had an email request which we aren't able to help with. It was passed on to Simon at the Leeds office to see if he is able to help.

Next Meeting:  Mon 16 July at 7.30pm; Chair – Richard; Notes – Liddy.
