If any of the numpties are indeed thinking of trying some half-wit campaign, they should re-watch their Canning Town videos for an idea of what response they'll get.

For what it's worth: I love Bonfire, and I support Extinction Rebellion. Actually, they have a lot in common: theatrical, witty, artistic, rebellious; street occupying, traffic stopping and for some people, infuriating. True, Bonfire has a carbon footprint. Extinction Rebellion does NOT blame individuals; it recognises that almost everything we do has a carbon footprint because we're stuck in a dysfunctional system that needs to be changed, and fast. Giving up Bonfire won't save life on Earth. Giving up the whole whole crazy notion of every growing consumption just might. I know the temptation to feature Boris and Brexit will be very strong, but I'd just love to see a tab featuring ,say, Shell, BP, Exxon, Chevron, Gazprom....

Giving up ever growing consumption will have a beneficial effect on the planet, that's obvious. Destroying western civilization, Roger Hallam's ambition ,won't. Getting rid of the debt based financial system that causes ever growing consumption will, that should be obvious. To pay the interest on a loan you have to get more money and as 97% of money is created as interest bearing debt it is impossible without you or someone else borrowing more and producing something to sell for a profit. Thus the cycle of ever growing production and consumption is perpetuated. It's very simple but, with the control of money creation being in the hands of private concerns which have unlimited funds to convince you otherwise, very difficult to convey.

@Stephen. Life on Earth doesn't need saving. Life will continue after humans are extinct.
Extinction Rebellion really isn't about the extinction of life on Earth. It's about extinction of the human race and life as we know it. Arguably, the World and Nature would be better off without humans

Dreamer, exactly, dreamer. Another DFL interfering. If you don’t like this town, move out. Life here will not, does not, and never will put up with wan*ers coming in and telling people about life. If you want your own way, go on your way.

@Planet Person: I did miss mentioning anything that applied to "this town". So many thanks for hallucinating that bit.
As for your assumption of my being a DFL: you are wrong. The truth is much, much worse.

Fair point, but probably only one of many reasons. Recall that the original plans and sale were agreed when property was booming... more
