Get involved with STOP AQUIND events and activities!
From the moment news broke about the Aquind Interconnector project we have come together as a community through a number of different STOP AQUIND events and activities. See below for our upcoming opportunities to get involved and see what we have been up to.
Upcoming Events & Activities:
Pop-up Petition Picnic at Bransbury Park on Sunday 25th July
We are having a Pop-up Petition Picnic at Bransbury Park (that is set to be carved up with the Aquind Interconnector route) now on the 15th August from 1pm to 4pm (date changed from July) near the skatepark. All are welcome! We are looking forward to meeting more members, have a chat, raising awareness, and collecting signatures for the Stephen Morgan MP petition. Find out more HERE and you can download and print out the form HERE.
Please bring your own drinks, and food.
SIGN STEPHEN MORGAN MP’S PETITION!
Portsmouth South’s MP, launched his public petition at our Walk the Route event. He hopes to collect up to 5,000 signatures in a petition to Parliament to stop the implementation of the Aquind interconnector project. A public petition led by an MP requires physical signatures. It can’t be done online or scanned and returned by email, but we are sure you feel strongly enough to go the extra mile to ensure our voices are heard! Find out more HERE and you can download and print out the form HERE.
If you haven’t got a printer don’t worry, we can help get a form to you or you can sign at some shops, libraries and other spaces. Check on our Facebook group or Instagram for updates on where to sign and contact us if you need help.
