We went along to take part in the tree planting and to also pass on a letter with some serious requests to the Mayor & Secretary of the Environment, food & rural affairs – as it seemed relevant & a poignant moment.
We did gatecrash, but did nothing to scare the children at all. We are doing what we are doing for the children of today and tomorrow! Our issues are local, national and global and there is nothing narrow about what we are doing – quite the reverse. But maybe some are too blinkered to see that. Demonising/putting us down will not change this. The Rising up spokesperson only wanted 30 seconds to speak and pass on the letters. This was denied. We will leave it to you to make judgement on the comments / actions!
Apologies if we did make any kids feel bad – we only requested a dignified 30 seconds ! We ask that the voice of the community is respected, listened and responded to.
