Transition Bath and many other of XR’s allies and partners joined forces in Royal Victoria Park on Saturday 28 October for the XR Unite to Survive South West family-friendly protest. The aim of the event was to stand together in the name of social justice, climate action and protection of the natural world and to promote community resilience.
Transition Bath shared a stall with Bath Organic Group (BOG), whose community garden is at Lower Common West in Victoria Park. They were distributing food grown in the BOG garden, which had zero food miles and was completely organic, seasonal and fresh, including apples, peppers, squash and medlars.
In addition to the stalls, throughout the day there were workshops, speeches and musical performances and a lunchtime march through the city centre led by a huge band of drummers from Street Beats Stroud.
