FREE THE PRESS – part of an Uprising Weekend!


27 June 2021
11:00 - 01:00


London, Unιted Kingdom, London, United Kingdom



hosted by

Extinction Rebellion UK

In 2020 we stopped the presses for one day, raising the alarm on a broken media held hostage by 4 billionaire crooks… ten days later, Rupert Murdoch had a private meeting with Priti Patel.

Now, we have Patel’s Policing Bill pushing to further criminalise protest, demonise travellers and embolden a violently prejudiced police force… and we have a mainstream media that is little more than the establishment’s mouthpiece, twisting the narrative, and greenwashing the climate emergency

Our democracy is under immediate threat.

Petitions aren’t gonna win, but they are a good way to show how many of us there are, and get Murdoch quaking in his boots before we turn up at his doorstep. Start your action by signing the petition:

Then, join us in London on 27th June as we demand a press that is fit for purpose, a democracy that serves the people, and a country that is united against hate & prepared to face the challenges ahead.

🤸 Expect speeches, music and art.
🤸 Expect to be challenged, informed and inspired.
🤸 Expect radical truth, powerful love and the solidarity of a shared fight.

Expect the unexpected. 🤸

This will be part of a weekend uprising in London, where we will join together with other movements and demand the change we need. If you can, plan to be in London for Saturday 26th too – we’ll be part of a cross-movement national demonstration, joining the dots between our struggles and setting the scene for us to target the press the next day.

And on Sunday 27th June we will #PullTogether to FREE THE PRESS from corrupt, billionaire ownership.

More details coming soon. Watch this space!
