Gather at Scot’s Quay – Moved the Planet along ?

Chris Hussey

Saturday 24th September saw a gathering of folk in the fields adjacent to Scot’s Quay to mark 45 years of Resurgence magazine and local support for the international 350.org event Moving Planet .   In line with Satish Kumar’s famous multi-thousand mile walks in pursuit of peace – Transition Constantine organised a walk  from the village down to Scot’s Quay – ably led by children from the school carrying flags they had made earlier in the week.  The Gather event included a number of musicians and bands, tree listening, charcoal buying, natural paint making, and dance – all leading up to a session with Satish Kumar being interviewed by Leo Hickman of the Guardian – on Satish’s wide ranging and inspirational thoughts over the last 45 years.  During the afternoon everyone took part in creating two large scale human banners for 350.org – shortly to appear on the Moving Planet website.
