What’s the plan

Planning a Rebellion is a beautiful whirlwind of chaos right? But there’s really only 2 concepts to get your heads around…

  • Act Now because it’s too late – disrupt the City of London
    By focusing on the City, the Rebellion will target the root cause of the crisis, the political economy.
  • Crisis Talks – everyone’s invited to the table.
    If our leaders consider holding emergency talks so impossible, we will bring people together and do it ourselves. We will occupy spaces to listen and discuss the hard truths: what does crisis mean to you? How is it affecting your community? What can we do about it?

Crisis talks

Everyone will be invited to the table for our very own Crisis Talks where conversation is the game. Because power doesn’t want us to talk to each other, so we’ll make coming together in an emergency a revolutionary act! If our leaders consider holding emergency talks so impossible, we will bring people together and do it ourselves.

Come along to a crisis talk training session and find out how to run your own. Sunday’s at 5pm, register here.

Forming an Affinity Group

We want every rebel to feel ‘part of’ the Rebellion. If you want to find mates for the August Rebellion and be part of a small self contained unit that ensures the wellbeing of rebels then email: xrsw.agsn@protonmail.com

We’ll be happy to help you form your own Affinity Group or join an established one.

SW Rebels connecting in London

We’ve set up a number of Telegram chats to help Rebels arriving in London get into Affinity Groups and link up – there’s one for each individual day of the London Impossible Rebellion.

If you are in London on a particular day, join the individual telegram chat for that day. We’ll broadcast meeting places and times and help facilitate AG’s so you can be linked into the action on that day. If you are at the rebellion for multiple days, join multiple chats.

Questions? Email xrswactions@protonmail.com

Getting prepared

The best way to combat that anxiety is by arming yourself with knowledge so that you can make an informed choice.

No one should feel pressured into activism and everyone should feel prepared and understand the risks.
