UK, London, United Kingdom



hosted by

Extinction Rebellion Southwest Britain

UPDATE – Hundreds of banners are planned to be dropped across the whole UK. As far as we know this has never been done before. We want to document this FIRST and mark the launch of this rebellion by making a short film. If you can please check out this link, take some footage and upload it following the instructions.

For every action we need you to find a filmmaker… The filmmaker can be a professional with a film camera or just someone who is up for trying it out with a good smartphone (iPhone 11 or similar).

Once you have found someone they need to follow this link >>>>>> https://xruploads.co.uk/ to let us know what they’re covering and what footage to send us.


Mass banner drop across the UK plus fossil fuel themed actions.

The rebellion has started! Change is Now.

Across the UK we will begin this Rebellion with a visual show of our strength and solidarity as local groups, affinity groups and communities hang ALL their banners to Tell The Truth about the climate and ecological emergency. Our slogans may vary but our message is unified: we are Extinction Rebellion and we are here to ACT NOW.

This is our chance to show our messages big and bold, from villages to cities across the country. Our banners will signal the start of Rebellion and send a clear signal that we are unified and ready to rebel against a system that is killing us.

Actions planned on this day will have a fossil fuel theme so our message is coordinated, yet creative. This is an opportunity to highlight the breadth and depth of our dependence on fossil fuels, as well as local and regional issues and to reach out to other movements campaigning on different aspects of the climate and ecological emergency to show solidarity and support with their causes.

Local groups, affinity groups, communities and even regions are encouraged to think big, work together and start planning autonomously. Involve every aspect of XR in the planning (regen, wellbeing, arts, police liaison, etc, etc) and get your local media and messaging teams involved. Decentralised but unified across the UK in timing!

Keep checking back as this doc will be updated more with artwork files and press releases.


As part of the Fossil Fuel themed actions XR FAMILIES have organised a “FOSSIL FUEL PLAY-IN AND FEED-IN” – UK COORDINATED ACTION.

Join XR Families across the UK by organising your own feed-in on Aug 28th as part of a coordinated action to demand the government immediately divest from fossil fuels, and invest in a green sustainable future.

Breast and bottle-feeding mothers, with support of grandparents and other family members, will unite in love and a fierce refusal to stand by and watch as our children are sentenced to a bleak future.
