Getting ready for the Easter Uprising
Christian Climate Action is a group of Christians who, like all of us at Green Christian, are fighting climate and ecological breakdown. Many of them are Green Christian members. They think that the issue is serious enough to demand civil disobedience, and are getting together with Extinction Rebellion this Easter in a campaign of peaceful nonviolent direct action calling for action.
· What is Extinction Rebellion? Do read Elaine Ewart and Ruth Musgrave’s beautiful articles about their experience of protesting with Christian Climate Action and Extinction Rebellion in our latest Green Christian magazine, out now!
· Green Christian’s Euan McPhee has cycled from Falmouth to London for the protest with the Rebel Riders of the Ecopocalypse. They are inviting you to join them, especially for the last leg of the journey.

Comments on "Getting ready for the Easter Uprising"
Living in the West of Scotland, where Irish history still has long resonances I think the title Easter Uprising is most unfortunate and (with it's images of Easter 1916) has the potential if used in the wrong context to stir up sectarian feelings. Perhaps a less loaded title such as Easter Resurrection would have been better.
