Is it legal to hold a vigil?
As long as you aren’t obstructing people when you sit in vigil, you have a legal right to protest and you should have no issue with the police. Extra rules may apply during coronavirus.

Do I have to be a member of Extinction Rebellion to attend?
Definitely not! All are welcome, especially those who haven’t joined actions before.

Do I have to be religious/good at meditating/engaged in activism to attend?
Definitely not! All are welcome. If you struggle to sit still for long periods, do shorter sits and maybe some slow walking. Do bring a fold-up chair and/or cushions if you want to be more comfortable.

Can I vigil from home?
Yes! We have a team organising online vigils – sessions will take place on Sundays at 7pm and Wednesdays at 9 am beginning with offerings from different faith traditions on Sunday 27th September at 7pm. Please join us. Email melanie@earthvigil.co.uk for the Zoom link.

Where are there currently vigils happening?
We know of ongoing vigils in Malvern and possibly Westminster, with more to follow. We’re working on a list – do get in touch info@earthvigil.co.uk if you have information about a current vigil.

How can I help?
Apart from organising local vigils, do let people know about us. The power of these actions always depends on whether they are talked about or not. If you feel inspired by Earth Vigils, talk to people and share photos etc. on social media.

If you have any other questions please do let us know and we’ll add them to this page.
