"You may well ask: 'why direct action? Isn't negotiation a better path?' You are quite right in calling for negotiation. Indeed, this is the very purpose of direct action. Non-violent direct action seeks to create such a crisis and foster such a tension that a community which has constantly refused to negotiate is forced to confront the issue. It seeks to dramatize the issue that it can no longer be ignored"
-Martin Luther King
RT-P are a bunch of local activists that believe there are people here, in Plymouth, who are concerned, willing to understand and to take action about the Climate emergency we are living in.
Like the rest of the Rising Tide network, we work voluntarily taking direct action against the root causes of Climate Change and providing popular education on this matter.
We also organize creative actions as a local ART NOT OIL group: www.artnotoil.org.uk.
If you would like to get involved with Plymouth-RT, get in touch!
