I have mentioned a number of times that the G7 Summit is happening over this coming weekend in Carbis Bay, Cornwall. Everyone has now arrived and talks as well as various protests have started. Another film being shown is this one from children from Marazion School near Penzance and Stoke Climsland School near Callington. It, too, like Gee 7 which I gave you a couple of days ago, is very moving and really needs to be listened to by our leaders and by all of us.
Even before the G7 had sat down to begin their Cornish summit, Mount Recyclemore, a sculpture made of discarded electronic waste depicting the visages of the seven leaders, looked bound to be one of the stars of the show.
About 15 artists helped create the structure over a frantic six weeks at Rush’s scrapyard/studio in south London. Parts were then shipped down to Cornwall on lorries and put together in situ.”
We need to visit Sandy Acres Beach to see this. This afternoon we did one of our favourite walks along the cliffs at Godrevy. We had thought it might be blocked off but apart from the radar area and seeing army personnel, all was much as usual.
