‘Starting on October 7th, Extinction Rebellion groups across the world will gather in key cities to rebel.

It’s going to be huge.

Time is running out. Climate and ecological breakdown has already begun. Leading scientists and public figures (including the UN Secretary-General) have estimated we have as little as 18 months to turn it around.

The situation is urgent and we need to ACT NOW.

In the UK, we will peacefully shut down all roads into Westminster in Central London and nonviolently disrupt the government until our leaders agree to TAKE EMERGENCY ACTION NOW. Other nonviolent actions will target corporations, ministries and infrastructure that maintain our toxic system. You can stay up-to-date with plans at urlzs.com/RppA8 .’’ [This is a Google Docs link.]
