Mothers will do everything they can to protect their children.
Ecological devastation and the growing climate emergency means our babies’ lives are at risk.
We are reaching the point where it may be too late to save them.
We are here to demand that our government acts now to protect our babies.
Breastfeeding and bottle feeding mothers will join the front line and stage a mass nurse-in at one of the road blockades in Westminster on Wednesday October 9th at around 10:30 am. The event will be a peaceful, nonviolent act of loving civil disobedience. JOIN US AND SPREAD THE WORD
Older children are welcome to attend and activities will be organised for them behind the front line.
Several steps will be taken to ensure mothers and babies are safe including:
— the press will be informed well in advance to make sure there is a high level of visibility
— the location of the action will not be decided until the day to make sure we choose a blockade which is calm and well supported
— the police will be informed of the action well in advance
–there will be a nominated police liaison on site to ensure the action goes smoothly
— legal observers will be present and stewards will be allocated to support women and their babies
However, it is not possible to eliminate all risk and before attending an action, it’s crucial we all inform ourselves of our rights. Read more here:
