CLIMATE activist groups from across Britain will take part in a “Regional Rebellion Day,” campaign group Extinction Rebellion (XR) announced today.
The group is planning peaceful non-violent protests for Saturday December 15 to put pressure on local councils to declare a climate emergency and reduce carbon emissions to zero by 2020.
XR’s Larch Maxey said their regional groups are “rising up” to face this emergency.
“Throughout the UK and the world we are seeing people coming together to take peaceful action, to demand that there is an emergency response to what we face,” he said.
“Rebellion for the our future and our children’s children’s futures is an idea whose time has come.”
The action builds on XR’s launch in October and its quick growth through a series of acts of civil disobedience from road blocks to super-glueing themselves to a government department building.
In total, more than 150 people were arrested out of hundreds of activists willing to risk prison by engaging in the protests.
