What is Extinction Rebellion?

Extinction Rebellion (XR) is an international movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience in an attempt to halt mass extinction and minimise the risk of social collapse. Our strategy is rooted in evidence, following the principle that disruption is needed in order to be noticed, to change the conversation and achieve systemic change.
Find out more on the XR website.

Anyone can join XR by getting involved in your local group or joining Rebellions - sign up here.

XR's Three Demands

"1. Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change."

"2. Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025."

To find out more about what needs to be done, visit the Climate and Ecological emergency training

"3. Government must create and be led by a Citizens' Assembly on climate and ecological justice."
