Extinction Rebellion Cambridge Youth

On 16th February, XR Cambridge and XR Youth Cambridge will bring the city to a halt with a week-long roadblock if the institutions of Cambridge do not meet our three local demands on climate and social justice.

The Demands:
– The University of Cambridge must cut ties with the fossil fuel industry.
– Cambridge City Council must hold a Citizens’ Assembly on Climate Justice.
– Cambridgeshire County Council must work with other relevant regional authorities to provide a plan for a just transition away from an inadequate transport system reliant on fossil fuels.

The effects of the climate and ecological emergency are falling more heavily on disadvantaged and marginalised communities around the world, including in the UK. Any attempt to address the climate crisis must seek to bring justice to these communities.

We’re inviting Rebels from all across the region (and beyond!) to join us. We need people, skills and enthusiasm.
