Our rebel has been moved off the road, for her own safety and to avoid arrest.

She is still receiving plenty of attention from people walking past and vehicles slowing down to read her sign.

The police arrived within minutes.

"I don't want you to get hurt."

The police have thanked our rebel for coming out today, say they understand the message and what is trying to be achieved, and have asked her to please be safe and stay out of the road. ๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐Ÿ‘ฎ

Banbury Quakers and XR joined the national call for MPs to support the CEE Bill, and helped to create a CEE bill twitter-storm

On Friday 26th March many organisations took part in a nation-wide CEE bill banner drop. The 26th marked the date that the bill was due to be debated in parliament. Unfortunately due to the pandemic, Friday sittings have been suspended.  Jill Oakes, who helped to put up the Banbury banner at Nothing but Footprints @refill_not_landfill in Castle Quay, said;
โ€˜The banner drop and twitter storm were organised to elevate the bill to the top of MPsโ€™ agenda.
We are in the middle of a climate crisis and need our government to act now!โ€™
Maria Huff, clerk of the Banbury Quakers, said; 
"Although the weather prevented us putting up this banner outside on Friday morning, Banbury Quakers stand with the call to Back the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill, and have written to Victoria Prentis asking that she support this very important discussion in Parliament."  #ceebill

If you are self employed, please consider joining our Earth Tax Strike. It's a tax strike for anyone who pays their tax directly to HMRC - artists, therapists, plumbers, gardeners, actors, consultants, shopkeepers - the occupation doesn't matter, what matters is that you are not on PAYE, so you are able to withhold a percentage of your tax as an act of non-violent civil disobedience. Here's a blog I wrote explaining it for Writers Rebel. If you'd like to know more, come to one of the meetings (link at the end of the blog). https://writersrebel.com/tax-strike/

โ˜Žโ˜Ž CALLING ALL NORTH OXFORDSHIRE RESIDENTS โ˜Žโ˜Ž

If you have Victoria Prentis as your MP please check out this petition. โฌ‡โฌ‡โฌ‡

And if you feel like signing it, and sharing it with anyone else in North Ox - go for it! ๐Ÿ’ช

โฌ‡โฌ‡โฌ‡

If the  #CEEBill is passed through parliament, it will require the government to achieve more realistic targets if we are to stay below the [safe and recommended] 1.5ยฐ warming. It will also help to preserve natural habitats ๐Ÿฆ‰๐Ÿฆ‡๐Ÿฆ‹ and the beautiful English countryside. ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฆ

โฌ‡โฌ‡โฌ‡

Victoria is currently not in mind to support the CEE Bill, but not all Tory MPs are on the same page, so hopefully a bit of pressure from her constituents will help her see the light. ๐Ÿ’ก๐Ÿ˜ฎ
