WELCOME TO THE INTERNATIONAL REBELLION
Starting on October 7th, Extinction Rebellion groups across the world will gather in key cities to rebel.
It’s going to be huge.
Time is running out. Climate and ecological breakdown has already begun. Leading scientists and public figures (including the UN Secretary-General) have estimated we have as little as 18 months to turn it around.
The situation is urgent and we need to ACT NOW
In the UK, we will peacefully shut down all roads into Westminster in Central London and nonviolently disrupt the government until our leaders agree to TAKE EMERGENCY ACTION NOW. Other nonviolent actions will target corporations, ministries and infrastructure that maintain our toxic system. (You can stay up-to-date with plans at urlzs.com/RppA8)
In April and July, we sounded the alarm with disruption across the nation. None of our demands have been met. So now, we must confront the elites who profit massively from driving us all headlong towards extinction.
We will rebel for as long as it takes for our government to wake up and realise the death sentence they are giving our young people. Not to mention the loss of biodiversity and the countless species that are being pushed to the brink of extinction through our failure to act.
Respect existence or expect resistance.
Tell your friends, your kids, your parents, your cousins, your neighbours, your neighbours’ cousins, your workplace acquaintances, and even that stranger at the bus stop.
We ALL need to stand up for our future.
Help spread the word and get involved:
1. SHARE THIS EVENT on social media, even if you’re not a frequent poster, it’s one of the most effective ways to raise the alarm.
2. GET PLANNING and get linked into your local group, these small units are vital to organising during the Rebellion. rebellion.earth/act-now/local-groups/
And this is not just for people willing to risk arrest. There are all sorts of roles that are vital to the Rebellion and keeping rebels safe, organised and well-fed on the streets.
3. START THINKING ABOUT YOUR ROLE. We need savvy cooks, admin legends, action designers, sanitation pros, financial whizzes, social media gurus, prominent spokespeople, legal observers, super-practical builders and fixers, musicians, logistics experts. And loads more. Explore our groups at rebellion.earth/act-now/resources/ (More info to follow)
4. DONATE. If you’re short on time but could give money, donate to the Rebellion at rebellion.earth/donate/.
This Rebellion needs everyone. If you think you have nothing to contribute, think again. Bring yourself, and that will be enough.
See you on the streets.
