Skull People Election Action
8 December, 2019: This was a largely silent procession/street theatre action to highlight the importance of climate in the General Election. The group marched through Malvern Town Centre, Barnards Green and the Malvern Retail Park. Other XR members handed out leaflets to the public. Periodically, one of the skull people spoke the following into the megaphone: “We are facing an unprecedented global emergency. The Government has failed to protect us. To survive it’s going to take everything we’ve got. We are at risk of triggering abrupt climate breakdown and a sixth mass extinction. We are facing floods, wildfire, extreme weather, crop failure, mass migration and the breakdown of society. We are asking our candidates, if elected, to take immediate action on the Climate and Ecological Emergency. The time for denial is over. It is time to act. Think climate when you vote. Vote for the future of your planet. Vote for our children’s future. VOTE EARTH!”
A good article also appeared in the Malvern Gazette and Worcester News about the action.
