Climate Change Flash Mob Birmingham 21 Sept 2009
Time: Monday, Sept 21 at 12:15 PM
Venue: Victoria Square
Place: above the fountain, Birmingham, ENG, United Kingdom
Host: Richard Fern
We are asking you to join us and bring an alarm clock, a mobile phone and a sense of profound silliness. You may also wear nighttime fancy dress. Everyone sets their alarm clocks or mobile phones or similar for 12.18. At 12.17 everyone raises their set alarm clocks (mobile phones or similar) and arms in the air. A polar-bear-suited conductor will then lead them to sway their hands from side-to-side while chanting tick-tock-tick-tock for one minute. At 12.18 everyone’s alarms will go off and everyone will wave their arms and alarm clocks in the air shouting ding-a-ling-a-ling (imitating an alarm). Please note: Jumping up and down like a complete nutter is not necessary or compulsory. However, flashmobbers should feel empowered to express themselves and their prevailing mood. Then everyone phones the Prime Minister (on a number to be provided) to offer words of gentle and loving encouragement. This will be a fun family-style event. Bystanders should feel included, not threatened. So please be nice – even to Gordon B. Disperse - 12.30. Participant equipment: Everyone to bring an alarm clock and mobile phone (with an alarm) or similar. Everyone to be encouraged to wear nighttime clothing – pyjamas, nightshirts, dressing gown, etc.
