Last week, the Climate Change Committee (‘CCC’), the Government’s own climate advisers, released another staggering report on the Government’s utter inaction. It warned the Government to start preparing for a 4˚C warmer world, a future implying the loss of billions of lives, with marginalised communities and those in the Global South impacted most.
How many more alarm bells do we need? We cannot carry on like this.
While no one could’ve predicted 2020 would turn out this way. It is no coincidence we face multiple crises all at once. Climate breakdown, Covid-19, racial injustice, economic inequality – all are symptoms of a toxic economic system that is driving us to extinction.
The Government is failing to do what’s necessary to keep us safe. They ignored the warnings about coronavirus, now they’re ignoring warnings of a 4˚C warmer world, with any hopes of a green recovery rapidly slipping away.
We cannot carry on like this. This system is killing us. We want to live.
And that’s why we need to bring the Rebellion back to our streets. From 1 September, we will peacefully blockade the UK Parliament in London until they act on the climate emergency, passing our 3 demands into law.
28 AUG & 01 SEP | London, Wales, The North, Scotland
Beginning on 1 September, the Rebellion will return.
On that day the UK parliament starts re-sitting after the summer: but we’re not going to let them back in until they agree to start anew with justice, care and life at the heart of it.
From the 1st we will peacefully blockade the UK Parliament in London until they promise that the first thing they’ll do is pass our 3 demands into law. We’ll keep the blockade going for as long as it takes, so take two weeks off work starting from the 1st.
The Rebellion will not just be focused on London though. Welsh rebels will join us in rebellion by causing disruption in Cardiff, with rebels in the North and Scotland formulating plans as we speak. More on this coming soon.
In order to build pressure towards the blockade, there will beCountdown to Rebellion starting 28th August with local groups around the country invited to cause high impact disruption in their own regions, to gather and galvanize rebels in readiness for action and to warn the Government that the Rebellion is coming!
If we stand a chance of making this historic Rebellion successful we need to grow the movement bigger than before. This Rebellion belongs to all of us so if you haven’t already, join a local group and start using our mobilisation methods to help grow the movement.
