Extinction Rebellion

Steve Heigham of Extinction Rebellion led an interesting session at the TRESAcic public meeting on 15th May.

Extinction Rebellion is an international movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience to achieve radical change in order to minimise the risk of human extinction and ecological collapse.

Extinction Rebellion has three main demands:

  1. Tell the truth. Government and media outlets must tell the truth and declare a climate emergency, because that is the truth.
  2. Act now. The government must start on actions that aim to bring emissions down to net zero by 2025.
  3. Go beyond politics. The government must create and be guided by a ‘Citizens’ Assembly’ to carry out these actions, in order to break the political deadlock of conflicting interest groups that has blocked all progress on the issue for a long time.
