Extinction Rebellion’s (XR) first demand is that the government and media ‘tell the truth’ about the climate and ecological emergency.

In pursuit of this, on Friday the 11th of October 2019, hundreds of XR activists descended on the BBC’s HQ at Broadcasting House in London.

In this episode, the Extinction Rebellion Podcast explores the motives of those activists and why pressure is growing on the BBC and all broadcasters and media outlets to radically improve their coverage of what the IPCC declares is an emergency.

It also features testimony from an ex BBC Radio 4 Producer, now XR activist.

You can view Extinction Rebellion’s three demands here.

With thanks to Morgan Dicks for his Climate Emergency Public Service Broadcast.
