XR Madison at Ride the Drive

Grass bike

Yes, your eyes do not deceive you.  It is a bike covered in growing grass.  Our Extinction Rebellion (XR) Madison group took part in Madison’s Ride the Drive, Sunday, June 2.  The sign, if I remember correctly, says, “Needed Now, Grassroots Activists for Climate Change.”  It got attention for sure.  One of our members had this idea and put it together . . . and everyone wanted to see it and take a picture.  It was a great way to bring people in so we could talk to them about the climate crisis.  We were able to get some new members.  Our group is new so it will take some time to build our numbers up for some direct actions in the future.
