XR Waterloo 'Garden Bridge' continues

Waterloo Bridge, London. Wed 17 Apr 2019



 There was drumming all the time while I was there

 and you could hear it even inside the Temple for Quiet and Rest

 The lorry was a stage

 Solar panels powered the PA system

 and there were people underneath the lorry to prevent it being towed away

 Kids were playing on a skateboard ramp

 The only garden gnome on the bridge

 One of the wellbeaing team was keeping the plants watered

 

 'Please Help - Our Planet is Dying'

 A bus stop but no buses on the bridge

 A drummer who had spoken at the protest outside Downing St

 

 

 A journalist interviews one of the campaigners on the bridge

 A bell rings to summon new protesters to an induction session

 and they sit in a circle waiting for it to begin

 On the stage a poet finishes a reading

Novelist and children's author Sue Hampton speaks about how she came to terms with losing her hair due to alopecia

 THe induction for recently arrived protesters

 

 

 'The World is dying, The Government is lying'

 A storyteller on the stage - but I knew the story though it had a slightly new twist at the end

And a kid plays foorball with a man
