Extinction Rebellion: International Rebellion
April 15, 2019 - April 28, 2019
“This is an emergency. We have less than 12 years
Our way of life is breaking the natural world.
Our leaders have failed us.
On 15 April we are calling for a full-scale Rebellion to demand decisive action from governments on climate change and ecological collapse.
Learn more about our demands and values here:
Under our current system, we are headed for disaster. Catastrophic climate change will kill millions, cause food collapse, and render many more homeless. Mass extinction of wild species will lead to ecological collapse. Destruction of natural habitats will lead to genocide of indigenous peoples and the loss of our planet’s life support systems.
It’s not too late to change course – a better future is possible. But governments are consistently failing to take the urgent and decisive action that will save us. If the system will not change, then we must change the system. It is our sacred duty to rebel in order to protect our homes, our future, and the future of all life on Earth.
Hundreds of groups have organised and taken action in countries and communities throughout the world. Find and join a group organising near you:
If there isn’t one yet, start it. Bring together those who will rise up, and together defend a vision for a better world and a brighter future – one where life matters.
There is no greater cause than to protect life on this planet, our only home.”
