Edwin Rutsch Public Seen by 168

We just held an Empathy Circle with Rupert Read and Skeena Rathor,  discussing the 'pamphlet, 'RUSHING THE EMERGENCY, RUSHING THE REBELLION? STORY AND VISION FOR XR IN 2020' by Rupert Read, Skeena Rathor, Marc Lopatin.

They write: "But right now, XR is at a turning point. What happens next is its most important decision to date. It could propel us all to new heights in 2020, or see us plagued by the incoherence that many of you have been feeling since last October’s Rebellion." p.3

What do you think about this paper and vision?

What I Like about Empathy Circles - Rupert Read

"The process was definitely more useful than I thought it would be. The non-judgement aspect was really useful....What became clear to me increasingly over the course of the time we spent together, is actually this is a real way to clarify thinking." ― Rupert Read

"I'm thinking about how do we use Empathy Circles to create the new story and the vision? Our pamphlet isn't 'The Story' and 'The Vision'. It's a question mark around how we create it and what ingredients are in that story or might be in that story... I think Empathy Circles could be useful in that co-creating of a story. " ― Skeena Rathor

Wow, this was great! 'XR listens' I think is exactly what we need to be doing - and this look a great tool to use. Looking forward to having a go at it tomorrow morning at your Cafe, especially around Rupert and Skeena's excellent pamphlet. Many thanks, Ben

'SONG. We Will Never Surrender By Extinction Rebellion'



Michael Clark Sun 8 Mar 2020

URGENT:  E-Scooters.  Solution to E-Scooters.

Greenpeace agree with this idea.

For Towns 'streets and roads', make one Pavement for Pedestrians, (Painted Green), and the opposite Pavement would be for Bicycles and little Electric Scooters, (Paint Red or Blue). Parents won't get there car out if they know there child can ride to School safely’,( and Adults to work ), cutting Pollution and Congestion. ‘No injuries’, so no Ambulances or Hospitals needed and no problem parking around Schools.

The Government are about to allow E-Scooters on to our Roads, so this needs to be implemented as soon as possible, because children will be injured and killed if we don’t do this straight away.
