London, London, United Kingdom
This is a climate and ecological emergency… A life or death situation.
The government is leading us to mass suicide by refusing to deal with our addiction to fossil fuels. It is an act of duty to create disruption to wake up the population to reality.
If we allow carbon to be put into the atmosphere we raise temperatures and melt the arctic ice, create weather chaos, the collapse of food production, and mass starvation. This process is well-advanced and leading us toward extinction.
It’s physics. It’s real. It’s happening now. And if we don’t force governments to act we will all die. Not just all the people on the news in far away places but here in London too. This includes you.
From 15 April, Extinction Rebellion is coordinating a non-violent rebellion in London to demand a government response. If our government refuses to seriously discuss our demands we will have no choice but to create disruption on London’s transport systems.
Unlike many politicians we will stand by our actions and are prepared for any legal consequences. Because in this, our darkest hour, we know that love requires action and duty requires sacrifice.
We sincerely apologise to all those who may suffer as a consequence of this disruption. In any other circumstances we would never dream of doing such actions. But we are where we are. We can wait no longer. This is now the most important thing in the world. We cannot but act and invite you to join us.
For all information email: firstname.lastname@example.org. The authorities have been told about this action as part of a plan to make sure the actions are carried out peacefully and safely.
