FIGHT FOR LIFE

We are in the middle of an Ecological crisis. Our course is set for mass species extinction, and societal collapse. Our future looks bleak and our children are not safe.

Change to avert the worst of the disaster is still technically and economically possible. It involves envisioning and building a world which is ecologically and socially just.

This is an emergency situation – action is urgent.

Our Government isn’t acting in accordance with what science and history tells us. Therefore our Government is criminally negligent.

We have a moral duty to rebel, whatever our politics. History shows us that peaceful civil disobedience is an effective way to bring about change.

Our lives have meaning when we follow our conscience and fight to protect what we love. We ask others who feel the same way to join our peaceful Rebellion.

OUR DEMANDS

01 Tell the truth

Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change.

02 Act Now

Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025.

03 Beyond Politics

Government must create and be led by the decisions of a Citizens’ Assembly on climate and ecological justice.
