Ok so Extinction Rebellion's co- founder Roger Hallam said: “We are not just sending out e-mails and asking for donations. We are going to force the governments to act. And if they don't, we will bring them down and create a democracy fit for purpose and yes, some may die in the process.” Does this sound like a peaceful solution really? I'm all for saving the planet, I recycle and don't litter but the leaders of this group think it's ok to let people die for their cause and have an ulterior motive that there followers don't see or chose not to see.
I read a story in a local newspaper this evening about a lady who has chosen to skip her daughter wedding so she can go to an Extinction Rebellion demonstration taking place in outside Derby City Council house tomorrow 24/07/2019. I feel that protesting in a small city at 5 pm on a Wednesday won't really gain that much attention for the cause this lady wants to fight for, she should go to her daughters wedding there will be other protests she can attend.
We could all do more to save the planet, Stop holidaying abroad, use public transport where possible, impose a plastic tax on super markets to reduce plastic packaging, only buy glass milk bottles that are widely recyclable use social media to raise awareness don't bring large cities and airports to a standstill it just makes people angry and last time Extinction Rebellion occupied London they left heaps of litter and a man missed the chance to say goodbye to his dying dad because ER thought it'd be good to block the M32.
Thing is it's not just the UK that's causing climate change issues look at China, India and America, they are biggest culprits when it comes to stomping a whooping carbon footprint on the world if you feel protesting is the ultimate solution for climate change then protest at the G20 Summit where all the world leaders can take note if they chose to.
At the moment the UK is in crisis, Bo Jo needs to find his feet and he may not be my favorite choice for PM but he is and our government needs to stop acting like a pack of spoiled kids in a playground, dust of their dummies and stand together and fix our country. Division has made us weak, other parties need to rally around and except the current leadership and the voice of the majority of UK people at the end of the day all government staff are public servants and need to serve the public, not themselves.
