Extinction Rebellion (XR) hit the headlines late last year with their call for civil disobedience to draw attention to the climate crisis. Citing the suffragist, civil rights and other movements, they say that the time has come for similar tactics for the climate. Many movements have been successful when using peaceful civil disobedience, so they call on one and all to join them to demand that action is taken on the climate crisis.
The civil disobedience movement started in London in October 2018 but now has spread across all the continents of the globe.
There was a large ‘uprising’ in April, where over thousand, otherwise law abiding, people were arrested for blocking roads and infrastructure. Through that action, tens of thousands of people heard about XR, joined up themselves, and are now ready to take part in the next wave starting 7 October 2019.
If you’d like to volunteer with other Haringey people to help on the weekend, please fill out this short form:

Extinction Rebellion’s demands are simple – the government must:
1 – Tell the Truth
2 – Act Now and cut emissions to net zero by 2025
3 – Set up a ‘Citizen’s Assembly’ to lead government on climate issues, in recognition that our current version of democracy has failed to bring about the necessary action for a safe future.
XR is a global movement, visit their homepage here that gives details of the organisation and the actions that are being planned!
What we do in the next few months makes a massive difference for life on the planet. It’s our generation’s time to act and everyone is welcome; everyone is needed.
We hope to see you on the streets! 🙂
