The Greenwich Meridian, located at longitude 0, marks the starting point of every time zone in the world, it is the standard by which time is measured. Extinction Rebellion will use this to symbolise that we have zero time and that we need to act now on climate change.
Meeting at Blackheath Lincoln Field for a pre action briefing, we will march through the South Gate of Greenwich Park to the Royal Observatory where we will enact a die-in around the meridian line.
A die-in is a demonstration in which people lie down as if dead. We occupy the area lying down to show the seriousness of the climate emergency and the impact that is having on humanity.
Meet at Lincoln Field, Blackheath at 3pm. Arrive at the Observatory at 3.30
