From 2.00 pm, 2nd October 2022, Edinburgh residents will get a chance to come together in a People’s Assembly: a tried-and-tested form of direct participatory democracy, designed to empower ordinary people, encourage dialogue and draw conclusions informed by all voices.
The subject of the People’s Assembly will be: How do we respond to the crisis we face together? This question will be debated by People’s Assemblies across the country during the Extinction Rebellion Change Is Now Tour, to create a mandate for change that the government must listen to.
We need to learn to listen to each other, practice new democratic methods, and prepare to demand that our voices are listened to. Come be a part of it.
