Dear Readers, can you feel the excitement in the air? In case you haven’t seen it on the news media (and chances are good you won’t), #ExtinctionRebellion activists are busy rebelling this week. In 60 major cities in the UK, Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South America, Mexico, and the United States, people are gathering to shout, dance, sing, glue themselves to heavy objects, do performance art, and whatever else they can think of to tell global governments to STOP INVESTING IN AND SUPPORTING FOSSIL FUEL GIANTS. NOW. Our global house is on fire, and it is a CLIMATE EMERGENCY.
Here is a news segment from Democracy Now! which interviews Dr. Gail Bradbrook, one of the co-founders of Extinction Rebellion. It’s a great segment to watch, especially if you aren’t familiar with XR’s basic philosophy and three foundational demands. Because climate heating is really happening, and governments can no longer simply pay lip service to the world’s citizens. We are demanding Real. Action. Now.
Here are links to XR’s website, for all the latest news, inspiring videos and amazing photos of what is happening in the streets of our world this week. The People are Awake! Shouting! And Fearless! https://rebellion.earth/2019/10/09/xr-unchained-day-2-of-rebellion/
Get inspired and involved. To change our world, it takes everyone and that means YOU!!
