Join XR Scotland’s new water group
October 27, 2023
A new water-based group, XR Scotland Orcas, is taking to the seas to act for a better future for our planet and our communities.
In July, for Climate Camp Scotland’s summer camp at Grangemouth, kayakers dodged police patrols and accessed Hound Point Terminal to take a message to Ineos to stop profiting from poverty and pollution. Hound Point Terminal is where Ineos exports oil out of Scotland making a fortune for its tax-avoiding, climate villain owner, Jim Ratcliffe. Meanwhile, residents living around the Ineos plant are blighted by pollution and struggling with food and gas bills.
Earlier in the year, Orca kayakers joined the UK-wide Wave of Resistance against the Rosebank oil field. The Wave saw XR Scotland, Friends of the Earth Scotland, Surfers Against Sewage, Sea Shepherd UK and Greenpeace UK, come together to save our seas and stop Rosebank.
Who are the Orcas?
We are a small group of activists looking for kayakers, paddle boarders, sailors across Scotland – anyone who can take to the seas, to join us. We need your help and enthusiasm!
Our actions are not about taking risks as we take a safety-first approach. Nor are we just about actions. There is a friendly, regenerative side to the Orcas as we train and connect with nature. It’s awe-inspiring taking to the water and being part of the very environment that we are trying to save for future generations.
We would love to hear from you if you want to get involved with the Orcas. Get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can you help us?
So far we have relied on generous donations to buy equipment to get us started and onto the water. Now we want to bring more people together to take the Orcas to the next level. Your donation today will help us with training costs and equipment.
Thank you – we really appreciate any support
Love from XR Scotland Orcas
