Who are Extinction Rebellion?
We are you! We are human beings – from all corners of the country and abroad, of all age groups, from all walks of life. And we are concerned about the future of our planet, for the sake of our children, our species, and all life on this planet.
Our government is failing to act on the ongoing ecological crisis. We feel that we have a moral duty to rebel, no matter our political backgrounds, because this world needs ACTION NOW.
History shows that peaceful civil disobedience is an effective way to bring about political and social change. Together we can build a world that meets the challenge of this climate crisis, finds the will and the means to transition to a sustainable society. We believe that such a sustainable future includes everybody; that it takes all members of society sharing in hope and access to decision-making to steer our future course well.
