Extinction Rebellion Norwich were joined by XR North Norfolk for a Clean Air Die In at the centre of Anglia Square. The shoppers were very curious and we handed out a LOT of leaflets advertising Car Free Day on September 22nd. Activists began the event by walking around with breathing masks and inhalers, before 'dying' under the canopy as the Declaration of Rebellion was read loudly. There was also a guest speaker talking about the proposed redevelopment. The Anglia Square security team were super friendly and helpful - even helping us hang our banner on the balcony! Attended by local TV and print press, we certainly got some attention. Rebels were so enthused that they proceeded from the square on foot into the city, where they died again on Haymarket. A great outreach event!
