Extinction Rebellion


October 7th, 60 cities worldwide.

Full information about actions around the world can be found HERE:

Starting Monday October 7, for 2 weeks, Extinction Rebellion and allied movements will gather in major cities across the globe and continue to rebel against the world’s governments for their criminal inaction on the Climate and Ecological Crisis.

To Governments of the World, we declared a Climate and Ecological Emergency. You did not do enough.

To everybody else, rebel.

You are called on.

Something is happening. You know it is, you can feel it. You are called on to be part of it.

Because time is running out.
We’re on the brink of extinction
The governments are doing nothing.
Businesses are doing nothing.

It’s up to you now.

This isn’t a distant apocalypse. Scientists are telling us that we’re 18 months from a tipping point from which there will be no coming back.

It’s not going to happen to somebody else. It’s going to happen to you.

We must rebel.

You can’t look to us or Greta for this. You have to look inside yourself and rebel.

Starting on October 7th, for 2 weeks, Extinction Rebellion is calling an International Rebellion. Together, we will peacefully occupy the centres of power and shut them down until Governments act on the Climate and Ecological Emergency.

Leave your desk. Invite your boss. Walk out of school. Switch off the TV. Put down your phone. Get on the streets. And bring everybody.

You are called on. If you do one thing with your life, do this. Not later, now.

Respect existence or expect resistance.

? 1. SHARE THIS EVENT ON SOCIAL MEDIA. Even if you don’t post frequently, it’s one of the most effective ways to raise the alarm.

?? 2. LINK WITH YOUR LOCAL GROUP. These small units are vital to organising during the Rebellion.

?? 3. FIND YOUR ROLE. The rebellion is for everybody, not just those willing to risk arrest. We need cooks, admin legends, action designers, sanitation pros, financial whizzes, social media gurus, prominent spokespeople, legal observers, builders and fixers, musicians, logistics experts, and loads more to help keep rebels safe, organised and fed on the street. Explore roles here.

?? 4. DONATE. If you’re short on time but can offer money, donate to the Rebellion.


?? 6. BRING YOURSELF. This Rebellion needs everybody. If you think you have nothing to contribute, think again. Bring yourself. That will be enough.

See you on the streets.
