Extinction Rebellion Bury St Edmunds park pink boat on Angel Hill to raise awareness of climate crisis




Extinction Rebellion Bury St Edmunds are back in town and this time they've brought with them a bright pink boat.

The eye-catching dinghy will be parked up on Angel Hill until 2pm today, while other family-friendly activities are being held in the Abbey Gardens to highlight the climate crisis.

Organiser Robert Possnett, who painted the boat himself, said: "We're here today to raise awareness of the various things we have going on in the Abbey Gardens as well as of Extinction Rebellion in general."

The pink boat has become a symbol of the movement since one was parked in Oxford Circus during April's International Rebellion - another of which is due to start on October 7.

In the Abbey Gardens, the group are leading workshops on fabric printing, re-wilding gardens, singing and getting involved with the group.

Jasmine Canham, from Great Barton, who has been a supporter of the cause for a few months, said: "We're here to give out information, have a chat and enjoy a picnic while getting the word out there about what we do."
