Three unrelated, but remarkable stories hit our shelves today so we have a lot to cover.
To start with, the British Army was commissioned by racing promoter, Silverstone, to guard their zealous racing enthusiasts’ prize race, the “Grand Prix.”
Next, Chancellor Osborne, who said “I don't want UK to be at forefront of tackling climate change” is doused with mock ceremonial JSO glitter by a spry lady with a Union Jack purse. Just Stop Oil commended the action, but did not take credit.
Finally, in Boston, Ocean Rebels, from XR Boston hit the beach with a theatrical funeral - calling attention to the utter destruction of marine life caused by humans - calling for immediate protective action. The action was both breathtaking, and sobering. Go to xrboston.org/news to get more details.

Four civil disobedience activists (including one rebel) blocked the road to the Burning Man festival. It generated hundreds of media stories.Another rebel glued his feet to the floor of Arthur Ashe stadium and stopped a US Open semi-final game for 49 minutes. It generated thousands of media hits worldwide, inserted the topic of climate emergency where it is least seen - the sports pages. Would you like to be a part of this new wave of climate actions, where a small number of brave people can make a big impact? Come learn from these two rebels. It's not hard. It just needs a bit of pluck, a bit of creativity, and a straightforward message.

“What are our responsibilities at this time? Because of the fossil fuel industry, we are facing horrors of a magnitude never before experienced in our existence. Our government continues to lead us to the edge of no return. We must stand up and defend ourselves. No one else is going to do it. It must be us, if we want to live.
Our methods must be disruptive, and they must be nonviolent. Our actions are evidence-based, credible, and we have a plan. The only thing missing at this point in time is YOU!”
