Join us for the Big Climate Demo to County Hall!
Tuesday 12 October, 8.30am Lewes Railway Station
Please join Transition Town Lewes, Divest East Sussex, Lewes Climate Hub, XR Lewes, Lewes District Green Party, Lewes Constituency Labour Party and friends to urge East Sussex County Council to take proper action on climate change
This October will be the second anniversary of East Sussex County Council (ESCC) declaring a ‘climate emergency’.
Two years on, ESCC is still refusing to divest the East Sussex Pension Fund (which covers Brighton and Hove, as well as East Sussex) from fossil fuels, hasn’t endorsed the Climate & Ecological Emergency Bill (which would ensure that the UK plays its fair and proper role in limiting global warming to 1.5°C) and appears to have done very little to make its ‘target’ of reducing the County’s carbon emissions by 13% a year a reality.
On Tuesday 12 October, ESCC will be holding its last Full Council meeting before this year’s historic UN Climate Summit in Glasgow. Join us at County Hall that morning to remind ESCC that this *is* a climate emergency and that they need to start treating it like one.
Please help spread the word! Invite your friends on Facebook and contact Divest East Sussex if you can distribute flyers at any upcoming events or display an A4 poster in your window: firstname.lastname@example.org.
