Why We Act
Extinction Rebellion is an actions-led movement. We use non-violent, civil disobedience to do what is necessary to attempt to force the government and institutions to act on the climate emergency and bring about change. Our vision of change involves mass participation. Together we’re unstoppable.
What We Do
Anyone can plan an XR action as long as it is consistent with our Principles and Values. Our ‘How to Action’ Guide equips and empowers you to plan your own action. Actions take many forms; most are non-arrestable and every rebel can play their part, whatever you’re comfortable with. Keep an eye on local, regional and national actions that you can join on our events calendar.
Who We Need
Anyone and Everyone! We need you- whoever you are, however much time you have- to help build a powerful movement. If you are a concerned citizen then you are welcome to join a growing group of like-minded individuals ready to ACT NOW and Rebel for Life.
If you are planning to take part in non-violent direct action with Extinction Rebellion you must read and abide by our Action Consensus that includes our Rebel Agreement. We act in peace. We are all crew.
You can email our SW Actions regional team XRSWactions@protonmail.com– we would love to hear your ideas or link you up with local action teams in your area!
