Hastings Green party launches petition to declare a climate emergency

The Hastings and Rye Green party recently issued the following press release.

Extinction Rebellion: the time is NOW

Larch Maxey came to Stade Hall last Wednesday evening (3 July) to talk to around 70 people about the climate emergency and social change. He spoke with passion about his discovery of Extinction Rebellion (XR) after a 25-year record of unrewarded activism and how he, like so many of us, found in XR what he’d been looking for all that time. XR understands that humans respond to stress emotionally, that we’re only about 20% rational, so, faced with climate emergency, we don’t simply do the math and put things right. Hence, our important principle of no shame and no blame, especially as our choices as consumers and non-consumers are in very short supply. XR Hastings member, Terry McBride shares her experience of the meeting with HOT readers.
