Tue Oct 1st: Technology Help Session

7:00-8:30pm, Sumac Centre, 245 Gladstone St, Nottingham NG7 6HX

How do you make your phone secure for the rebellion? What are Telegram, Signal and Proton Mail? How do you use them and why does it matter? What’s the problem with good old phone calls?

If you’d like help with any of the technical side of being an XR member then come along to one of these sessions.

No question or problem is too small. If you’re asking, then you can bet at least 10 other people will have the same question, so please do ask.

We’ll spend a short while going over XR’s recommendations for secure communication. Then we’ll provide a workshop to help get you up and running, so bring along your phone. Maybe some ear plugs as well… there’s bound to be some swearing as we grapple with everyone’s technology!

Remember, this is not just to protect yourself, but the whole rebellion. An unsecure phone could give the authorities the information they need to disrupt an action.

Here are a couple of guides from XR for those who can’t make one of the sessions:



Thu Oct 3rd: Pension Fund Protest

9am, County Hall, Loughborough Road, West Bridgford, Nottingham NG2 7QP

Nottingham Extinction Rebellion will be outside County Hall at 9am on Thursday 3rd October to protest against the County Council’s refusal to stop investing in Fossil Fuels.

This is the AGM of the Nottinghamshire Local Government Pension Fund. Despite calls from hundreds of pension fund members and the City Council the County Council that manages this multi-million pound fund, refuses to sell its investments in fossil fuels that are driving global warming.

This will be a fun, noisy, disruptive protest to make it clear that their behavior is unacceptable. Come with your voice and other things to make a noise!

At 10.30 you can also join us in the public gallery for the AGM itself where the fund managers will be fielding over 20 questions from Extinction Rebellion.
