It feels weird that the G7 Summit is taking place in my home county of Cornwall.
It feels even weirder that I am not there.
Because there is so much to protest about.
And we may not have the right to peaceful protest for much longer as the Government attempts to bring in the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill, 2021.
Even though we didn’t manage to get there this time, it is heartening to see the imaginative banners, slogans, sculptures and singing being broadcast from Cornwall by Extinction Rebellion amongst others.
Carbis Bay is a beautiful place and this is the most beautiful time of year. If we don’t want these wonderful things to be damaged beyond repair, the G7 leaders must act rapidly and decisively to halt climate catastrophe. As individuals we can contribute by changing our lifestyles, but only government policies are capable of bringing deep change swiftly.
So whether you are in beautiful Cornwall or not, do pray that our leaders open their ears.
