The Day the Music Declared: Extinction Rebellion welcomes music industry’s declaration of climate and ecological emergency
July 12, 2019 by Extinction Rebellion
What a great day it is to see Music Declares Emergency launching, with some of the biggest names in the music industry signing up. We’re really excited to see the music industry come together to declare climate and ecological emergency.
Radiohead, Foals, Nadine Shah, Hot Chip, Chrissie Hynde, IDLES, Gilles Peterson, Alt-J, Bernard Butler, Beth Orton, Carleen Anderson, Ezra Furman, Coldcut, Tom Odell, & Bonobo are just a fraction of the artists who have signed up so far.
Their declaration calls for systemic change and demands that governments tell the truth and act now to reverse biodiversity loss and reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions.
On top of that, the signatories which include industry giants like Sony Music UK and Festival Republic, acknowledge the environmental impact of music industry practices and commit to taking urgent action.
Extinction Rebellion are looking forward to having music bring us together for the next major phase starting October 7. Music powers the Rebellion!
