Extinction Rebellion active in the Highlands
08 August 2019
A meeting in North Kessock on 6 August reviewed the threat of catastrophic climate change and species extinction, and proposed mass non-violent civil disobedience as the only way to force the government to start taking climate change seriously and initiate effective action. Since its formation last year Extinction Rebellion has advocated and organised disruptive but peaceful protests in various UK cities, most notably in London at Easter this year, and has grown into a world-wide organisation.
Various XR groups are active in the highlands, including one in Inverness, which organises regular 'Inverness lunchtime for Climate' events in Falcon Square from 12.00 to 1.00 every Friday.
