COP26 Coalition Rally, Sheffield Town Hall, 12th June 2021

Many different groups joined together in Sheffield City Centre to send a clear message to the G7 leaders meeting in Cornwall and those preparing to go to COP in Glasgow in November. ACT NOW! I was particularly pleased to hear the Extinction Rebellion Justice Group “pass the mic” to the global south, by reading messages from XR campaigners in Namibia and India. Here are the speeches, in no particular order.
