Extinction Rebellion London

East London Rebels have been planning an East London Uprising – and now it’s time for you to get involved!

We are calling on East Londoners to join this weekend of play, protest and education on July 12th, 13th, and 14th that will feature arts, music, talks, workshops, guerrilla gardening, a march, performances, the famous XR skeleton march, solutions area and non-violent direct action across East London.

Together we’re creating a treasure-trove of creative and participatory activities which will bring our message on climate and ecological breakdown home to East London. Throughout the three days of family-friendly events, you can learn about the climate crisis, attend art workshops and trainings, and come together with other East Londoners to enjoy music and food in a mindful way.

This community event is an open invitation to EVERYONE who lives locally or in London to join us. Together we can change our world by reclaiming our streets and public spaces back!

To make all of this happen, we need you. There are lots of ways you can get involved and every contribution is treasured. We’re looking for yogis, gurus and wellbeing people to run free classes. We’d love musicians, artists and creatives to perform or share their skills. If you’re a storyteller, cook, gardener or poet, come and share your vision of a greener East London. If you fit this bill, then drop in on your local borough group meeting or email xrhackney@gmail.com.
