Extinction Rebellion is an international movement which aims to persuade governments to take action on the climate and ecological emergency facing the planet. Extinction Rebellion aims to achieve this through the use of non-violent direct action. In the UK, Extinction Rebellion has three demands for the government.
1. Tell the truth
The government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency,
working with other institutions to communicate
the urgency for change.
2. Act now
The government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions
to net zero by 2025.
3. beyond politics
The government must create and be led by the decisions of a Citizens’ Assembly on climate and ecological justice.
