The protest camp will be illegally blocking a street (with full prior knowledge of the police). XR Derby cannot 100% guarantee the safety of any person at the protest camp. There will also be training offered on site and you are encouraged to do your own research before you go. Here is a good starting point https://rebellion.earth/act-now/resources/legal-info/

Can’t get to London?
If you would like to support the Love Rebellion, but can’t make it, here are some things we really need doing:
6. Contact TV and radio stations and help to make our case.
Listen to how Dave and Edward explained it on BBC Radio Derby on Sunday: https://rebellionderby.earth/media/RadioDerby6-Oct-2019.mp3

If ecocide were declared a crime by the ICC, this could have a similarly daunting effect on those corporate tyrants who currently know they can get away with devastating the world’s “sacrifice zones” where they are pillaging the earth’s resources for profit.” Jeremy Lent, Author
