We are a small group of rebels now known as the Tufton 3 (Clare Farrell, an XR Co-founder, Prof. Rupert Read, author of ‘Parents for a Future’, and Jessica Townsend, co-founder of Writers Rebel). We were arrested for criminal damage at an Extinction Rebellion demonstration outside 55 Tufton Street, at which many luminaries from George Monbiot to Mark Rylance and Zadie Smith had spoken.
The action drew attention to the opaque and nefarious practices of the right wing think tanks located there. Most egregiously, Tufton Street is home to the Global Warming Policy Foundation, an institution that has worked tirelessly to undermine public confidence in climate science, and to delay and dilute meaningful policy changes on climate. We must now go to court and have our case heard in October 2021.
This fundraiser is hoping to help cover our legal fees, and any excess will be donated to XRUK and Writers Rebel.
We are so grateful for any support folks can offer, see you on the streets again soon!
