ENVIRONMENTAL campaigners have delivered a seven-day ultimatum to the government, demanding it enter talks about the climate emergency.
Extinction Rebellion and allies from almost 200 environmental and social justice groups, including the PCS union, Greenpeace and War on Want, delivered two demands today.
The alliance called for the government to halt the search for new fossil fuels immediately. And it also demanded the government should set up emergency citizens’ assemblies to let the people decide how to end the fossil fuel era, setting a deadline for ministers to enter into talks.
If ministers fail to respond by 5pm on Monday April 24, XR and allies have vowed to step up their campaigns and actions across the country to force them to do so.
comment by dizzy: I doubt that the UK government will respond positively to XR’s demands and instead disregards the climate crisis.
