The Rising Clyde #11

The Rising Clyde #11

22 Jan 2021

Dear friends,

Welcome to 2021, and to the Rising Clyde #11, our first edition for an exciting new year! Be sure to subscribe to our joint Coalition Calendar to stay up to date on our events. As it is also Burns Night soon, tune into this edition’s soundtrack to get you in the mood for our upcoming Coalition Social.

We can’t wait until November for Action on Climate Justice. This Spring, 27-28 March, we will come together again for From the Ground Up #2: Take Action Now.

Due to the difficulties of school closures and another national lockdown in the United Kingdom, we have extended the deadline for submissions until 31st Jan 2021 for all UK & European contributors.

International allies from the global south are invited to attend our International Assembly on 4th February to discuss potential topics, and can submit contributions until 15th February. 

For more information, check out our website or submit a session here!

Get involved!

As we look into the new year, there is lots to be done!

  • On Monday, 25th January, Migrants Organising for RIghts and Empowerment (MORE) is organising the first session on why Climate Justice is Migrant Justice. Please forward the flyer below and this submission form to any refugees, migrants and asylum seekers that might be interested!
  • Join the Political Strategy Working Group meeting on Tuesday 26th December at 7pm for a policy discussion on Net Zero.
  • The Comms Working Group is meeting weekly, with the next meetings on Thursday 28th at 3pm and Wednesday 3rd February at 3pm.
  • After that, the Mobilisations Working Group are meeting on Wednesday 3rd at 6:30pm to plan a Glasgow-based action during COP26.
  • On Thursday, 4th February, we are inviting all of our international allies to join us in our next International Assemblies, at 9am UTC and at 4pm UTC. Please forward this invite to all your international networks, and contact Global Solidarity if you’re able to help out.
    And lastly, we’re warmly inviting you to come to our Coalition Social on Friday, the 29th January, 7:30pm, where we will hold an informal Burns Night – bring your favourite song or poem, cook some haggis and down it with your favourite Whisky/Irn Bru, or just come to sit back and chat! Everyone welcome, join here!
