Join a community ‘Paint by Numbers’ in St Werburgh’s!

Come and paint-by-numbers with Adblock Bristol on Thursday 15th September, to join a European week of action against advertising for airlines and airports.

Adblock will be painting in a beautiful artwork by artist Soofiya that celebrates local activism against Bristol airport’s greenwashing and planned expansion. We’ll be at the community arts board next to Chaya Veggies from 2-7pm, feel free to drop by anytime – remember to wear paint-friendly clothing.

We’ll have paints, ladders, brushes, vibes. All welcome. Drop us an email if you’d like to know more!

This week Adblock have also delivered an Open Letter to Bristol’s mayor, Marvin Rees, to ask the council to introduce a low carbon advertising policy. Other cities around the world have banned adverts that fuel the climate emergency, such as those for airlines, holidays abroad, SUV cars and fossil fuel companies – we think it’s time Bristol followed suit. Agree? You can take action by writing to your local councillor and sharing the letter on social media.

Join the Subvertisers International week of action against climate-wrecking aviation advertising from 10-17th September. Check out the action toolkit.
Above: Bristol airport greenwash. A High Court hearing in November will see local activists from BAAN take the airport to court over its expansion plans, which are incompatible with the climate emergency. The airport claimed to be the first carbon neutral airport in 2021 – without including emissions from flights, or from vehicles traveling to and from the airport, in its calculations.
