Painting the streets to bring the message home
January 12, 2024 by Extinction Rebellion
Seeing out the old and bringing in the new with a celebration of colour – only this time it wasn’t with fireworks: all over the UK rebels took to the streets to paste posters, stick stickers, spray chalk stencils, do a bit of tweaking to some adverts, and much much more creative action to get the XR message out there: We know what is happening, the media, our political leaders and the corporates are lying to us, so we must REBEL FOR TRUTH.
Climate and ecological breakdown has begun, and we must stand strong and sound the alarm.
Thank you to each and every single person who took part in painting the streets throughout the holiday season and into 2024.
