Organisers pledge to reschedule planned Extinction Rebellion meeting in Sudbury after sudden cancellation due to emergency
Organisers of a planned Extinction Rebellion meeting in Sudbury last week have promised to reschedule the event as soon as possible, after it had to be cancelled at the last minute due to an emergency.
A public talk, entitled Heading for Extinction and what to do about it, had been scheduled to take place in the Friends Meeting House in Friars Street last Tuesday evening.
It had been set up by Sudbury residents Laura Johnson and Theresa Munson to enable members of the public to discuss the current issues of climate change and potential solutions with representatives of the Extinction Rebellion social movement.
Despite a strong turnout, the organisers were forced to cancel the event at the very last minute, after the speaker had to be urgently called home as a result of a close family member being hospitalised.
Theresa apologised for the sudden cancellation and thanked everyone who had come along, stating they were still able to discuss some of the issues with a number of attendees.
“We stayed and spoke to everyone who arrived and several people assembled in the pub for a chat afterwards,” she said.
“I feel it only right to pass on our thanks to everyone who turned out on a miserable night and to just confirm that we will definitely reschedule the meeting as soon as we can.”
The organisers previously stated they hope to build support for the establishment of an Extinction Rebellion branch in Sudbury.
