16 Feb: Street activism 'Down with Dairy'

Street activism helping people to go dairy free. We’re going to hand out free samples of dairy alternatives and give out leaflets. We might wear some masks too. If anyone wants to help with the technology we might show video footage too! See the Surge website for more information about the realities of dairy.

If the weather is awful then we might just hand out leaflets and shorten the event.⁣

Mini review on the Cube of Truth in Hebden Bridge

On Saturday 25 January, Cube of Truth came to Hebden Bridge for the first time. Cube of Truth is a form of street activism devised by Anonymous for the Voiceless in Australia and now takes place all over the world.

It was a very interesting day and many conversations were held with people who had viewed the footage from the film “Dominion” shown on the screens held in the Cube.
