WHO WE ARE
LEAFLETING - XR group in Wales is successfully distributing 20,000 leaflets a day by selling them for £1 for 100, saving time, energy, and funds. Cover Sheffield population in 1 month this way.
Add printables to this website (leaflets, stickers, etc) as accessible word files and PDFs.
Ask all XR Sheffield members to print 500 leaflets each at home. Each member can sell 5 packs of 100 to the public. This covers all printing costs. The population of Sheffield leafleted in one day! A Canadian city has done this already with great success.
One year ago, Greta Thunberg sat alone in protest in Sweden. Recently, she led 500,000 people in protest in Montreal. The Metro and all public transport was free on that day. Why not ask Sheffield buses and trams to provide free public transport during all future local XR climate strike events to show their symbolic support for the Mother Earth.
Resources are running out, so in some countries, shoppers are only supporting shops which switch off all their lights after closing (installing shutters and cameras increases security, but leaving lights on reduces security). Buildings which have unnecessary outdoor illuminated signs and unnecessary lighting on the outside of their premises are also being asked to switch off at night.
Please encourage local shops, universities, and offices etc to follow suit. Ask the council to support this.
Some shops in the UK have escalators which only move when a customer approaches it.
"Network" Movie – “I'm as mad as hell” speech - 5 min
Network is a 1976 film about a TV network that cynically exploits a mentally ill but enlightened ex-TV anchor's epiphany and subsequent revelations about the media for its own profit. It is an Academy Award winning film and #66 on the AFI's 100 Movies list. Directed by Sidney Lumet. Written by Paddy Chayefsky.
The last "XR Mad As Hell Protest" was in Australia
It was very noisy and well-attended!
28 March at 8.30pm
Ask all shops, the council, universities, schools, etc to cooperate in this - and EVERY DAY thereafter.
Resources are running out - Shops and offices etc must now switch off all unnecessary lights every night.
How serious and committed are people?!
