Walthamstow Town Square Protest | Extinction Rebellion

Published on Jul 7, 2019
On Saturday 22nd June, Extinction Rebellion Waltham Forest took over Walthamstow Town Square Gardens and transformed them into the town centre of our dreams. We shared food, painted faces, printed t-shirts, gardened, led yoga sessions and much more. All while talking to local people about the climate emergency.

Waltham Forest Council https://walthamforest.gov.uk/ has declared a climate emergency but has failed to inform local people. At the same time, it continues to pursue contradictory policies such as cutting down the beautiful, mature trees of Lime Tree Avenue in Walthamstow Town Square and supporting the rebuild of the Edmonton incinerator.

As protectors of the planet, we will continue to take action in order to tell our neighbours the truth about the climate emergency and give visibility and scrutiny to council plans until they tell the truth and act as if that truth is real.
