Extinction Rebellion (XR) will hold a ‘Requiem for a Bee’ this Saturday to raise awareness of the loss of biodiversity in Hackney, with protesters planning a funeral march running between Clissold Park and Abney Road Cemetery Gate. See previous story.
The protesters are currently planning to gather at 1pm on Saturday at Clissold Park Cafe, and proceed to Abney Road Cemetery where they will lay a coffin and wreaths “as a public act of grief for the red girdled mining bee.”
