Cape Cod Climate Emergency Spectacular


XR is organizing a Climate Emergency Action next to Cape Cod’s Bourne Bridge over the Cape Cod Canal. It will be on the Friday afternoon of Labor Day weekend, Sept 4. As the traditional slow parade of cars - backed up for miles - makes its way across the bridge for the holiday weekend, we'll be there with puppets, banners, and handouts reminding passengers of how environmentally fragile the Cape that they love is. We hope to have an appearance from our esteemed Red Rebel Brigade!

We will not be blocking or disrupting traffic (it's already backed up forever!) and the goal of this action is about raising awareness and connecting with people. If we aren't able to stay in our preferred location we have alternate locations (including the option of taking this to a beach!).

The time will run from 10am through mid afternoon. You can come when it is possible for you. Please bring a lunch and water as nearby options are limited.

If you would like to join the Red Rebel Brigade to participate in this action or future actions please email marrb@protonmail.com.

Please register if you are coming so we can send you more details about logistics and planning! If you're interested in having another role for this action (puppet holder, costume, police liason, marshall, etc), we will send out a follow up email to people registered.
