Eartha is my latest Spirit doll. She embodies the Earth element and is timely ready for the International Rebellion, that Extinction Rebellion has started today in London.
I knitted her with local yarn, grown by sheep who graze freely in and round Ashdown Forest, hand-dyed by me using chaga mushroom.
Her dress is made out of handspun Nettle yarn. Her hair is made out of hemp, her flowers are knitted with some bits of scrap yarn given by my mum years ago.
She embodies Sacred Activism, through reconnecting with the Earth, Nature – including all her inhabitants – and her sustainable, local, natural resources which are freely available to us.She invites us all to take a stance. To take part in the rebellion in anyway we can, to protect the natural world before it is too late…
Eartha wants you to join the Rebellion movement and to be the change.
Visit Extinction Rebellion website, subscribe to their newsletter, read, inform yourself and see what you can do to help…
Today they have started ongoing peaceful protests throughout central London. There will be similar actions in many big European cities this week. The point is to show that a lot of us do care about climate change and the state of the planet. We need to show that we are fed up with governments, politicians and all the bullshit they are feeding us.
Change will come from the people. The politicians have too many invested interests in the current status quo to engage in any real change.
You can choose to join the gatherings at the various locations in central London or decide to go on a Pilgrimage for the Waters, from Tower Hill to Westminster Abbey, as a peaceful act of resistance to educate yourself about these sacred ancient resources that are mostly forgotten and unused…
Eartha along with the trees, the bluebells, the forests, its inhabitants and all the ecosystems on earth need your help.
Thanks from Eartha & I.
