XR Peace Monday update

After the blockade was cleared Monday, XR Peace Rebels held a big banner reading Climate Justice Works for World Peace at the corner of Horse Guards Avenue visible to a steady flow of traffic all day.

We continued with speeches, poetry, music and song. Caroline Lucas MP gave a rousing speech saying we will win! Other speakers included CND Vice President Bruce Kent, Stop the War chair Lindsay German, journalist and author Victoria Brittain and Nobel Peace Prize winning Dr Rebecca Johnson from the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons. The Artboy performed slam poetry, and violinist Dmitri van Zwanenberg treated us to a set of inspiring tunes.

We decided to disperse for the evening and meet up again in the morning.
