Members of The Marches Extinction Rebellion (XR) group disco-danced their way into Hereford on Saturday (29 August), bringing the message ‘We want to stay alive’ and urging people back the forthcoming Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill.

The Discobedience troupe strutted their stuff to the sound of The Bee Gees’ ‘Stayin’ Alive’ in High Town before moving on to the Old Bridge.

One of the co-ordinators, Kate Bull, said, “We’ve been practicing the routine together on Zoom throughout lockdown, and it was great to finally bring it out on to the streets. XR is always finding creative new ways to draw attention to the climate emergency, and the need for our leaders to act, as well as to affirm our love for life… and dancing!”

Extinction Rebellion is planning a series of protests as Parliament resumes sitting this week, to bring attention to the deepening climate emergency and asking all MPs to vote for the new Bill.
