Thoughts with Anna: Next Global Strike

We will be joining the many locations across the world who are participating in the Global Strike on the 24th of September. The true power of protests comes from the people. We need you, in any form you please. There's not a single role that cannot be filled. From showing up on that Friday to … Continue reading Thoughts with Anna: Next Global Strike

Thoughts With Anna: New A6 Road

A road (the new A6 Road) is currently under construction (and parts are already completed) and it is being built across the Lough beg flood plain in Northern Ireland. This wetland is the habitat of countless creatures including precious indigenous species and is also the same land known as the birthplace of Seamus Heaney. Heaney … Continue reading Thoughts With Anna: New A6 Road

Thoughts with Anna: Burnout

Climate strike week 97 from Oxford, England. Something I'd like to talk about is the normalisation of burnout in activist spaces. In these photos, Kay and I look happy, hopeful and energetic. The reality is that while we were staying in a tree house at a HS2 Rebellion camp, we spent an evening crying and … Continue reading Thoughts with Anna: Burnout

SECA Conference

Myself and Kay school spoke at the SECA Conference today, which is in reference to QUB Sustainability. This is a copy of my section of our speech. QUB refuse to declare a climate emergency because it is seen as controversial, but we were reiterating how science is fact and therefore cannot be controversial. - Hello, … Continue reading SECA Conference

Poem 07

Metallic yellow tattooed across the skyline, Concealing old conflict from tourist's prying eyes. Tales of giants and leprechauns, Tales of kneecapping and pipe bombs. Pretty art made for Instagrammers to post, Reminders of hardship and loss for most. Memorials to stand and pose beside, Memorials that help us grieve with pride. 20 years on from … Continue reading Poem 07

Poem 13

(Originally published for The Bee Boxes) For me,  Conforming to an allistic society feels as if my brain and yours are Diverging parallels, Contrasting wavelengths, Contradicting perspectives.  Like thoughts hanging off branches, Forcefully picked Instead of naturally falling. Coerced to conform  To unspoken standards, And unseen scripts.  With time all the thoughts are taken, with … Continue reading Poem 13

Thoughts With Anna: Vote This CAP Down

Tomorrow will be the final vote on the CAP. We, the youth, are watching every move the European Parliament make as our environmental destruction will impact the rest of the world. If the CAP is not voted down tomorrow, it will mean it will be virtually impossible to keep to the Paris Agreement targets and … Continue reading Thoughts With Anna: Vote This CAP Down

Reviews With Anna: I Am Greta

A few weeks ago, I was one of the first people to watch the film I Am Greta, and I have been asked to review it. What can I say except wow? It was enlightening to see the beginnings of the Fridays For Future movement and it made me feel very hopeful seeing how far … Continue reading Reviews With Anna: I Am Greta
