*** Meet at speakers corner in front of Parliament at 7:00 where we will present our demands to the Government. From there we will march to 1 William Street at about 8. We encourage everyone to arrive as early as possible. We have a permit to assemble at 1 William Street from 7:30 am until 2:00 pm. This will be our basecamp for speeches, music and a kids space with face painting and activities.
On the 6th of August 2019 the city of Brisbane will see hundreds of Non-Violent rebels orchestrate a shut down of the business as usual of central Brisbane. Everyone is welcome as long as you abide by our ten principles and values. Click link below – https://extinctionrebellion.nz/about/principles-and-values/
We acknowledge that this action and the rebellion will take place on the stolen land of Turrbal and Jagera peoples of Meanjin, now so-called Brisbane. Their sovereignty was never ceded.
The 6th mass extinction of earth is already underway.
The Climate Crisis is already affecting lives and destroying ecosystems. Government and Industries are continuing the destruction of our only planet. We accept that this disruption will affect peoples day to day lives as our Rebellion must happen to disrupt the business as usual of a system that is accelerating the existential threat to all of earths species, including humans.
We have a permit to assemble at 1 William Street from 7:30 am until 2:00 pm. This will be our basecamp for speeches, food, music, welfare and a kids space with face painting and activities.
Meet at speakers corner in front of Parliament at 7:30 am and we will march to 1 William Street. We encourage everyone to arrive as early as possible.
So book a day or two off, get to your local meetings, make your banners and flags, practise you instruments and get ready to take part in rebellion day. Non-violent civil disobedience is morally and materially functional – it is the only option we have left to force the change that may just save us all from extinction.
Please make your own events for carpooling / planning meetings / trainings / and affinity groups on the day.
