South Yorkshire Climate Alliance and Extinction Rebellion Sheffield will be attending one of the biggest climate protests the UK’s ever seen, in London from Friday 21st April to Monday 24th 2023.
It’s expected that 100,000 people will surround Parliament to protest the multiple crises of our time including climate change, biodiversity loss, war, fuel poverty and the cost of living crisis.
Come and join us!

Seats are still available on our coaches for Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd April. Pick ups from Paternoster Row and Meadowhall coach park.
Both coaches will leave Paternoster Row at 7am on and stop at Meadowhall at 7:20am, before travelling to the Houses of Parliament.
Both are day returns. They’ll leave London at 6.00pm, from Victoria Tower Gardens South, Abingdon St, Millbank, London SW1P 3JA, arriving back at Paternoster Row via Meadowhall around 10.30 / 11pm.
Fares: different levels according to what you can afford- we trust you 🙂
£10/ £20: these are subsidised to enable those on lower income to travel*
£30: to cover costs
£30 + donation: please consider adding a donation to subsidise others and enable us to offer transport to as many folk as possible
Free tickets are available to those unable to afford any of the paid tickets. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request one if this is the case.
All fares are returns. You can use the coach just to get to London but you still need to pay the return fare. Please think carefully about using up capacity if you are only travelling one way.
The final Sheffield Climate Singers practice will be held at 1.30pm on Sunday 16 April. See the Singers’ WhatsApp group for details of the rehearsals and the songs: chat.whatsapp.com/J3HZds8EIka5TCUdeEVu5v
The final arts workshop will be held at KIAC on Tuesday 18 April between 6-9pm. KIAC – The Kelham Island Arts Collective – is in the Lion Works at 40 Ball Street, Sheffield S3 8DB.
The XR Accommodation Team is aiming to provide a safe space for anyone in need, who otherwise would not be able to come to London, and where we can rest and regenerate after a long day’s protest. Current options are: camping, indoor accommodation (in e.g., church halls, mosques, community centres, warehouses and sports halls), and Human Hotel (sharing a bed or floor in an XR rebels’ home). To request help follow the link Transport and Accommod… | Rebel Toolkit (extinctionrebellion.uk).
The overall programme for the four days is here: extinctionrebellion.uk/the-big-one/programme/
We are encouraging everyone from South Yorkshire to attend the People’s Picket outside the Department for Transport on Horseferry Road, SW1P 4DR at 11.30am on Friday 21 April to support our Better Buses South Yorkshire campaign.
