Against all our hopes, the old bad “normality” is resuming. The COP is revealed as a cynical exercise in environmental policy theatre. World governments’ Nationally Determined Contributions – if they stick to them – will result in a 16% increase in emissions.

We need to do something. At 11am on the 10th of November, we will.

At 11am on 10th November, individuals across the UK will sit down in the road, alone, in front of traffic. They will wear a sandwich board with a simple and emotive message. They will remain sitting in the road until they chose to move, or are moved.
Because we will not be bystanders while the world burns.
