Extinction Rebellion Symbolic Funeral Procession

08 December 2018

St John's Church Yard, Yeovil

The rebellion is coming to Yeovil!

Please join us for a symbolic funeral procession - the start of the Extinction Rebellion campaign in Yeovil and a chance for everyone who wants to take action on our ecological crisis to meet up.

The time has come to take action! Come and be part of the change: join the huge Extinction Rebellion movement.

We are facing an ecological crisis.

We must act now to raise awareness and call on the government to take action.

The United Nations' biodiversity chief warned that the world must thrash out a new deal for nature in the next two years, or humanity could be the first species to document its own extinction.

The funeral procession will symbolise the death of animals, humans and the planet if action is not taken. We are not going to let that happen, so we will also be joyful and celebrate the positive action that can be taken.

Meet at 11.00 by St John's Church, Yeovil and dress as an animal, or in mourning. Make a placard with an animal on, or with a message.

At 11.30 we will make a procession around town and then return to the church yard for some speeches and music.
