Love The Planet – Scrap Trident

Posted on by

Love the Planet logoOn Sunday February 14th, Valentine’s Day, we will declare our love for the planet (and of course all its inhabitants) and demand that Trident is scrapped. The activity you choose can be varied, creative and fun. It can be as simple as a bit of leafletting or standing with a banner for an hour, it could be holding a street stall or running a public meeting, or putting up posters around the town, dropping a banner from a local landmark or some witty graffiti. Use the Valentines theme to hand out paper hearts, dress up and play some romantic music, the possibilities are endless. And you can work in an existing group or get together with a few like-minded folk or just do your own thing. And as it’s a Sunday maybe think of some different places where people gather than the usual spots. Let us know what you are planning by contacting us on Facebook or through this website.
