Further clarity on XRUK and the Beyond Politics party

Following actions this week at Amnesty, Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth and Christian Aid by the new political party, Beyond Politics, XRUK would like to restate that Beyond Politics are a separate organisation and not a part of Extinction Rebellion.  We also would like to be clear that Roger Hallam no longer has a formal role in XRUK.  We would also like to clarify that members of Extinction Rebellion are welcome to be part of other parties and groups but must not use XR resources for these purposes. It is clear that many are frustrated by what happened this week,…

Goodbye rebellion.earth. Hello extinctionrebellion.uk!

The Extinction Rebellion UK website has recently changed its domain from rebellion.earth to extinctionrebellion.uk. We hope this will make clear its role as the XR UK website, while distinguishing it from other national XR websites and the XR global site rebellion.global. Any rebellion.earth URLs will redirect correspondingly to extinctionrebellion.uk for the foreseeable future. If you use rebellion.earth URLs in your email signature, in communications or on websites, they will therefore remain active for some time, but we advise you to change to extinctionrebellion.uk URLs as soon as possible. If you have an @rebellion.earth email address, this will be unaffected…

Right now, our Government is bailing out big banks, big oil and climate destroyers with zero commitments to people and…
