xr-Launceston is the XR (Extinction Rebellion) town group for Launceston in Cornwall. We are part of the North Cornwall area group.
Our first action, pictured above, was the Declartion of Rebellion on 7th September 2019.
We are a new group, just getting organised. Several of us are planning to be in London from 7th October and others are engaged in support activities and outreach around Launceston and Cornwall.
Whether or not you can get to London in October there is plenty to do here in Launceston and Cornwall. Start to Act Now by filling in the form at https://actionnetwork.org/forms/xr-launceston-signup-form
Once you have filled in your name and address and email and postcode and any other details you want to give make sure you have checked the GDPR agree button (or we can't contact you - and what would be the point of that?). You will get a welcome email from XR-Cornwall and start to get the occasional news emails from XR-UK, Cornwall and Launceston. You'll also get an individual email from one of us letting you know ways to get involved here.
FInd Us in Real Life
We gather once every two weeks on a Thursday evening - at present at 7:15pm in the back room at the Bell Inn, Launceston. Do pop in and join us. We are also planning a regular Extinction Cafe - dates and times tba (dreckley) and other events - watch this space or sign up for the email news.
Find Us in the Nooks and Crannies of the Inter-web-network-thingy
There is this web page, and there may be more stuff appearing on this website as and when we get round to it
We have an Instagram account - xrlaunceston - and when someone volunteers to set one up and run it we may also get a Facebook Page and Twitter account - could this be you?.
We have a secure email account xr‑firstname.lastname@example.org and various secure private messaging and discussion tools used for internal discussion
If you would like us to do an introductory talk about the science behind the ecological and climate crisis and the reason XR exists (the talk is titled "Heading for Extinction?") then get in touch. If you can gather a dozen or more people who'd like to find out more then we can provide speakers and help with venues etc.
We are planning various events for those unable to get to London - join us and find out more.
What are you waiting for?
Time is running out
