Taking Faith Bridge – October 2019
This video shows Christian Climate Action on “Faith Bridge” (Lambert Bridge) on Day One of the International Rebellion. CCA co-ordinated this occupation of the Bridge, creating a multi-faith oasis of peace, prayer and worship over the Thames, together with XR Muslims, XR Jews and XR Buddhists.
Like all the protest sites, it was planned that the bridge would include a small village of tents providing food, information, first aid, etc. Prayer flags were made by churches around the country and brought to decorate the space and a garden was created with donated plants. It was also intended that the centrepiece of the “village”, would be an ark. Read the story of Faith Bridge Ark here.
Die-in at Bicester Village – July 2019
Christian Climate Action protesters, carried out a “die-in” in Bicester Village shopping centre – a place known for its selling of luxury shopping brands.
Members of the group held a sign on the main pathway running through the complex, which read “Climate breakdown: we remember all people killed by new extremes of weather”. Other members of the group laid on the path, representing communities who have been killed by disasters around the world. Each person had a sign around their neck detailing the location of the disaster and the number killed as a result.
