'Escaping the Holocaust'
- the account of Rolf Harding's early life & escape from the holocaust.

If we are to change to a low carbon, low resource use, low waste economy, we have to take people with us at all levels of society. We can't tell people how to live their lives; that doesn't work and builds resentment and opposition.
The non-violent approach of the Extinction Rebellion campaign has its attractions and could achieve this change if handled well...
Extinction Rebellion is an international apolitical movement which intends to utilise non-violent resistance to avert climate breakdown, halt biodiversity loss, and minimise the risk of human extinction and ecological collapse.
Extinction Rebellion has 3 demands in the UK:-
1. TELL THE TRUTH - Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate emergency and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgemncy for change.
2. ACT NOW - Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025.
3. BEYOND POLITICS - Government must create and be led by a Citizens' Assembly on climate and ecological justice.
When carrying out Extinction Rebellion protests and demonstations etc., the organisation expects its members to follow the following set of priciples:-
  1. We show respect to everyone - to each other, the general public and to the government and police.
  2. We engage in no violence, physical or verbal and carry no weapons.
  3. We wear no masks - we hold ourselves accountable for our actions.
  4. We bring no alcohol or illegal drugs.
  5. We take responsibility for ourselves, we are all crew.
