CLIMATE CHANGE AND WHY WE SHOULD PANIC
July 02, 2019 by XR UK Video
Video animation, voiced by Keira Knightley.
British Academy Film Award and Academy Award nominee, Keira Knightley, OBE, has come out in support of Extinction Rebellion.
Keira has lent her voice to defend the climate and tell the truth in a new, short film that summarises the crisis from how we got here, and what we must do now.
The animation shows why government must enter crisis mode and choose a different path than the one we are on because it will lead us to extinction.

Keira joins Emma Thompson, Stephen Fry, Paloma Faith, Radiohead and all other people who know that we are facing an unprecedented global emergency.
Notes to Editors:
We are unable to contact Keira for interview.
Extinction Rebellion UK’s demands are:
- Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change.
- Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025.
- Government must create and be led by the decisions of a citizens’ assembly on climate and ecological justice.
