‘The Big One’ Friday 21 April – Monday 24 April
Near the Houses of Parliament, London
Extinction Rebellion, Global Justice Now, Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth and others came together for these four days. The streets were transformed with People’s Pickets outside government departments and a diverse programme of speakers, performers and workshops, awash with colour and culture. There will be art and music, talks from experts, places to listen and engage, and activities for the kids.
Global Justice Now had a stall and gazebo in Parliamentary Square, supported by stalwarts from Global Justice Reading on different days. It had an ambitious schedule of events, including workshops and talks, a walking tour, and even some comedy. These were very well attended, sometimes with so many attendees that the workshop spilled outside the tent. As part of the ‘People’s Picket’ we will joined our allies to picket the departments for trade and health on Friday 21 and Monday 24 April.
