A group of young and adult members of the Extinction Rebellion Dacorum were peacefully protesting along Berkhamsted High Street sharing their fears about the Climate Emergency and their hopes of a more sustainable festive season on last weekend (December 14).
Five Red Rebels and three junior White Rebels walked slowly and silently from Marks & Spencer’s to the Rex Cinema, with more than a dozen supporters giving out leaflets about the climate crisis and carrying a large earth in flames.
The Red Rebels are now widely recognised as part of Extinction Rebellion and bring to the movement a theatrical expression of climate grief.
Co-ordinator, Extinction Rebellion Dacorum, Sue Hampton said: “The red suggests danger, fire and blood, but also the love, which is at the heart of our activism, the love of all living things, earth itself and humanity.
“The message is that people are already suffering from climate breakdown and that as a species we face an existential threat with little time to address it, radically and fast.
“The 300 members of XR Dacorum welcome anyone who shares the same determination to work peacefully for the change we so desperately need.”
