XR Reclaim the BBC - Bristol Dec 21, 2018

Meet outside Clifton Down Railway Station for an initial briefing (at 9.30 -10.00), then we will move together to BBC Broadcasting House, Whiteladies Road.

Christmas dress code, we have XR-rated Chris tmas Carols (re-written especially for you!), and bring pots and pans, drums, percussion etc. for moments of planned crazy-loudness - we want the BBC to hear our message! (You might want to bring Earplugs too!)

Train from Frome at 8.07am (Westbury 8.17) gets in at Bristol Temple Meads at 9.05 then catch train to Clifton Down Station at 9.16 getting to Clifton Down at 9.29. About 7 min walk to BBC.

Ideas are bubbling up from young people about getting more involved. The first XR Frome families meeting was a success. The next one is to be held on Monday the 14th from 4-6pm (venue tbc). A small item, a link to Greta's UN speech and an invitation to discuss this will be sent to all local schools for their newsletters.
If you can help coordinate this, or anything else XR family related please contact Alex:
