Islabikes to take part in Global Strike 4 Future action in Ludlow, Friday 29th November 2019
We are facing a global climate emergency. Scientists agree we have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown. Our governments around the world are failing to act with the urgency necessary to prevent the impending catastrophe.
A single child, Greta Thunberg, has catalysed an international movement of Global Strikes 4 Future calling on governments to ACT NOW. They are still not listening.
We believe the scientists and want to add our support to our children’s cries for help.
Islabikes will close for the day and join the Global Strike 4 Future in Ludlow on Friday 29th November.
Our website will be closed for 24hrs on what happens to be Black Friday and our biggest trading day of the year. This is a big statement from us and a measure of just how seriously we take the current situation.
We will march from our Lower Barns location into the centre of Ludlow where we will demonstrate for 3 hours before returning to Lower Barns.
If you are concerned too – please join us!!!
We understand you may feel a little self-conscious taking action in town but we hope that knowing a large group of us will be there will give you the courage to come out and stand up for what you believe in.
Please circulate this to anyone you know who may be interested – businesses, schools, clubs, churches and friends.
On the day
- 10:00am – Leave Islabikes and march via Ludford Bridge and Broad Street to Castle Square (join us here to march with us, arrive early if you’d like a cuppa first)
- 10:30am approx. – Cross Ludford Bridge (join us here for a shorter walk)
- 11:00am approx. – Arrive Events Square (in Castle Square) (join us here to protest with us)
- 2:00pm – March back to Islabikes premises at Lower Barns
We plan the “mood” of the action to be family friendly and awareness raising, nothing confrontational. Banners and singing will be the order of the day!
