The Extinction Rebellion Change is Now Tour arrives in Seaford this Saturday (22nd of October) for a day of music, street theatre, talks and discussion.

The nationwide bus tour, which kicked off on September the 20th, aims to get communities talking about the cost of living and climate crises.

Helen Frederick, from Extinction Rebellion Lewes and Ouse Valley, explains; "The climate crisis and the cost of living crisis are parts of the same problem. Energy companies and lobbyists get rich from destroying our world while the rest of us are forced to pay for it. Politics is broken and out of the control of ordinary people. The situation is urgent but we need to get together and listen to each other. So, we’re travelling the UK and talking and listening about how we can upgrade politics together to bring about the change we need."

Seaford is one of over 60 towns and cities on Extinction Rebellion’s tour line-up. As well as a series of seafront talks, family-friendly activities and entertainment, the event will include a 3.00pm People’s Assembly at the SEA Climate Hub in Clinton Place. Anyone is welcome to attend.

A spokesperson from Seaford Environmental Alliance, who will host the People’s Assembly, said; "We’re excited to welcome Extinction Rebellion for the day. More and more people are visiting our Climate Hub very concerned about the cost of energy, food and our dependence on oil and gas. They’re losing faith in the system. This will be a great chance for our community to explore this more deeply together."

The Change is Now tour follows a ‘weekend of resistance’ on 14th-16th October, which saw thousands of activists occupy the streets of Whitehall to demand government action on the climate and ecological emergencies.

Extinction Rebellion is currently partnering with other groups and gearing up for a large-scale London protest in April. It expects to see more than 100,000 people take to the streets of the capital to demand change.
