Your Prayer Flags at the London Rebellion

Prayer flags at the Christian Climate Action tent at Trafalgar Square

Thank you all who made prayer flags for the October Extinction Rebellion!

They decorated Lambeth Bridge on the first day of the Rebellion, Monday 7th October, when, against a line of police, leaders from Tearfund, Christian Aid and CAFOD spoke to, prayed and sang with the faith groups assembled.

Christian Aid’s CEO, Amanda Mukwashi, named women in Ethiopia and Malawi who had lost crops due to climate change. ‘I believe in a God of justice, of peace, and of solidarity,’ she said. ‘I pray we find courage, strength, and humility. Let history show that we were the generation that stopped this planet from heading towards extinction.’

The flags then moved with the Faith groups to Trafalgar Square.

Please continue to pray for the Rebellion!
