Extinction Rebellion Nottingham is inviting concerned citizens and Rebels to protest outside the Eastcroft Incinerator site. This is part of the nationwide ‘Stop the Burn’ campaign https://www.facebook.com/stoptheburnUK/
>> Bring yourself, bring a friend and bring a placard!
>> Wear all red or all green: ‘Code red for humanity’ and ‘No to greenwash’.
>> Meet 8.45am on Clarke Rd (https://maps.app.goo.gl/jnD8qCeDSrvA7QQSA)
Nottingham City Council continues to promote the Eastcroft incinerator as ‘green’, despite its 2028 carbon neutral commitment. Meanwhile, Nottinghamshire County Council has begun approving a monstrous new incinerator on the site of the Radcliffe-on-Soar power station. Both bodies have declared climate emergencies and we demand that they stop incinerating and honour these commitments.

Information about incineration
🔥 50+ new incinerators will be in operation in the UK by 2030, doubling the nation’s incineration capacity and locking us into an additional 10 million tonnes of CO2 emissions per year.
🔥 Incinerators emit toxic pollution and generate greenhouse gases.
🔥Incinerators are often located in areas home to our poorest and most marginalised communities.
🔥 Burning waste undermines efforts to transition to a circular economy.
🔥 Incinerators are poor value for taxpayers’ money.
🔥 The UK must quickly transition to a zero-carbon, zero-waste circular economy.
💚 This campaign demands… An immediate stop to the construction of new incinerators, a ban on burning plastics by 2025, an incineration tax and public reporting of all incineration emissions.
