Extinction Rebellion London
The “Future is Here” site is now on Trafalgar Sq and focusses on the many solutions already present in society
As part of the XR International Rebellion Week, there will be talks about things we all can do already, and typical XR trainings like NVDA and deescalation trainings.
“The Future is here” hosts XR Families with lots of children’s activities, XR Film, XR Scientists, XR Future Democracy and several local groups (Islington, Bromley, Lambeth, Oxford, Sutton, Wandsworth).
Come to our welcome tent to get oriented !
READ ON to get a grasp of what XR is and why this event is happening:
To the British Government, In April we declared a Climate and Ecological Emergency. You did nothing.
To everybody else, rebel.
See you on the streets of Westminster, Monday 7 October 10am.
We can’t continue with climate breakdown and ecological destruction…It’s time for all of us to respond to the climate and ecological emergency.
WE NEED #EVERYBODYNOW
Join us at the ‘The Future is Here’ site on the Mall near Trafalgar Sq. We will showcase and explore the positive choices, innovations and community connections we can and must make in our society in order to turn climate and ecological collapse into an opportunity for a better world.
Expect family-friendly activities and workshops, dance and live performances. Get your voice heard at one of our People’s Assemblies.
The answers are already here. The creativity is here. Will you be there?
Help us create the change we need by being part of the biggest event of mass civil disobedience the UK has ever seen!
Bring your ideas, your friends, your kids, your colleagues, your parents. Bring your pot plants, musical instruments, solar inventions, or just your curiosity.
If not now, when? If not you, who?
WE’RE HERE TO STAY – UNTIL OUR CASE IS HEARD
In the UK, Extinction Rebellion will peacefully shut down all roads into Westminster in Central London and non-violently disrupt the government..
We will be camping and holding the site for as long as possible – every day we stay makes our case more urgent to the Government. So, make as much time in your calendar as you can, and add your voice to our growing movement.
Our site will work alongside the other sites in Westminster, to be held by XR groups from different regions and allied movements.
The Answers Are Here
The truth is we have tried and tested most of the solutions to climate and ecologically destructive practices. The truth is our current society is mainly ignoring most of them. This site will showcase these positive choices.
The Creativity Is Here.
Everybody must act now to make the change that is necessary. The creativity that is required isn’t mainly creating the solutions; it is applying them at mass scale rapidly. As Einstein said “a new type of thinking is essential if mankind is to survive and move toward higher levels.”
The People Are Here
This is an issue beyond politics; it is transcendent of current divisions. We all share this one home. We are all part of this one ecosystem. All communities must act together to mitigate the catastrophe, adapt to the inevitable changes and regenerate nature.
