The Big One

Our visit to London to join the Unite to Survive action, April 23, 2023

So on Sunday morning I set off down to London with my family to Unite to Survive at The Big One – Extinction Rebellion’s non-violent direct action against Climate Change. The train journey wasn’t terribly straightforward, but mostly due to user error (forgetting the credit card we’d booked on and discovering we’d actually booked for next weekend!). Having, finally, made it to Parliament square it was very busy (a good thing!), but everyone we met was really friendly and lovely in directing us to the right place and letting us know what was on and fun things the kids could get involved in. And stickers, which immediately boosted the kids!
