Extinction Rebellion is a non-violent civil disobedience movement in the UK which demands of its government that it declares a climate emergency, communicates the crisis to the public and goes zero carbon by 2025.





Our wildlife is dying, our children are under threat. We must act now. Governments around the world must tell the truth and start preparing. We can act. We can change the course of destruction that we are on but it will take everyone to rebel and rise up.
