Extinction Rebellion raise banners on the town hall and paint carbon footprints in Stamford High Street
Stamford Extinction Rebellion raised a flag at Stamford Town Hall in St Mary’s Hill on Sunday to mark the first day of their campaign.
Election Rebellion: 12 Days of Crisis involves campaigners raising the profile of the climate and ecological emergency they have declared.
The flag carried the Extinction Rebellion logo of an hour glass.
On Saturday night, campaigners marked the streets with 'carbon foot prints', using chalk-based paints in Stamford High Street.
The Election Rebellion campaign highlights the world's vulnerabilities as a direct result of climate and environmental breakdown.
These, campaingers say, include food and water shortages, flooding, increased pressure on the NHS and emergency services, and threats to security.
Extinction Rebellion in Stamford, Bourne and Peterborough are also inviting people to a lantern vigil on December 12 from 6pm to 8pm, near the Town Hall in Bridge Street Peterborough.
