Central XR have asked us to fill out a form about our XR group & the role we think the South West groups should take in October - the questions are attached as images. If you want to input or take part then comment below - we are also MEETING TOMORROW (WEDNESDAY 28th) 1pm GROSVENOR TO DISCUSS THIS & SEND OUR RESPONSE. I know it's very last minute so if you can only respond online then that's ok!
I am also very keen to find people who want to take on a coordinating role in our group, so let me know.
Here are the questions we need to respond to:
Please read out to your group, before filling in the form below
"The XR October Rebellion is 6 weeks away! We start on the 7th October and we stay for as long as we can, as long as it takes. Book the time off work now! Tell you friends and bring your families. It's going to be bigger, more effective, joyful, heartfelt, connecting, one of the most important and meaningful things we could be doing!
And the South West needs to decide how it wants to be involved!" Some Things to Consider In this case 'South West' means Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire, GloucestershireThe idea for the October Rebellion is to again occupy multiple (more than last time) sites in central London, from 7th October. This time, regions will be more autonomous in the choosing of, organisation of and decision making for their sites, with as much or as little support from 'central XR' as they'd like.As far as possible, regions will find the coordinators to run their site. There is a central circle 'Action Support' dedicated to providing help where regions need it; advice, suggestions, and role filling where necessary.There are 2 forms: 1) In this email, is to help us decide fairly quickly, as a region, if we want to take a site of our own. 2) Arriving in everyone's inbox (the whole network) this afternoon from central XR, through Action Network, is about finding out the roles individual people want to take on. Rest assured there is no duplication Please complete both.Before the rebellion coordination roles can be anything from a few hours a week, to full time, depending on what you can offer and the capacity of the whole team that assembles.During the action, as a rough guide, if you're there for 4 days or more and would like to take on a coordinator role, we'd love that!! You'd be working in a shift pattern agreed by your team, so everyone can get enough sleep and there'll be enough time to get arrested too, if you'd like!
