Reflections after week of : -Inspiring scale & impact. Amazing public support for the cause, media impact & good vibe. -Much more needed to highlight inc UK’s responsibility beyond borders, for communities on front line of climate impacts./1

-The UK has outsize footprint on the world thru colonialism & historical GHGs. It is right that XR starts by holding this govt to account. -But msg of global responsibility, solidarity & finance must not be lost, otherwise actions will not only be unjust but also ineffective./2

-True that some ppts are colourblind, clunky and fail to recognise their own privilege. -But remember, XR is a people’s movement, not a professional NGO with years of training and diversity culture. -We need this movement. And we need it to learn lessons, get better &stronger./3

-This has been a historical moment and I am humbled by its power. -Govt is still not facing the truth of what is needed. Many more rebellions and school strikes are needed. But this last year of people’s action has been amazing and not a moment too soon. /4

-Now govt & public must hear more clarity on how to create , system change & just transition in the UK and globally. Time to sharpen & push messages on policies and finance. -NGOs working on these issues might find the door more open, thx to XR & school strikes./5

-We must all use this moment to raise the bar for radical & just demands to keep the planet under 1.5C. The radical is being normalised, the public is listening. -There is a pink boat drilled into Oxford Street! Anything is possible. -We can do this, if we do it together. /6/END
