Join the Big Tree March & Rally ! Saturday 14th November, Sheffield City Hall at 11am,…………………………………………….. ACTION required!
So as she says, get your banners ready! AND your GREEN jackets, jumpers, and frocks! :
Sheffield Tree Action Groups (STAG) is holding a Tree March for the Trees of Sheffield. Meeting on the steps of Sheffield City Hall this Saturday, 14th November at 11am! ALL are welcome to this peaceful rally!
We are marching in protest at the continued unnecessary felling of healthy trees across Sheffield. Marching from the steps of City Hall to the steps of Town Hall to hear speakers, before forming a circle of green around the Town Hall.
Professor Ian Rotherham and Professor Nigel Dunnett will be speaking. Ian is an expert on a range of environmental issues, and well known to many of us. Nigel is an expert on creating healthy cities, through design. This will be an exciting opportunity to hear from them both, at this important time for our city.
Sheffield City Council continue with their smoke and mirror game playing. Fox’s ‘transformation’ of the city will leave many in a concrete wasteland – asset stripped of heritage, ecosystem wealth and beauty. Well established, healthy trees felled and ‘replaced’ with high failure saplings.
Come and show your support AGAINST this. AGAINST the permanent environmental degradation that is happening to Sheffield PLC!
See you 11am at Sheffield City Hall this Saturday….
Don’t forget – Bring your kids! Bring banners! Bring GREEN jackets, jumpers, and frocks!
Afterwards you may wish to join us free for the afternoon sessions of the strongly urban ecology conference – A Life in Ecology – about Sheffield’s global ecological figure ‘ Dr Oliver Gilbert’ – the person who put the urban River Don and urban habitats firmly on the map.
The event is in the Norfolk Building of Sheffield Hallam University, only 5 minutes from the Town Hall Steps.
Please let us know in advance if you wish to join us for free for the afternoon. firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0114 2724227
