XR SA Crafternoon

Sunday June 2nd 12:30 AM – 4:30 PM

An afternoon for all of us to get together, and for crafting and hanging out to decorate the rebellion!

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

1

The Government must tell the truth about the climate and wider ecological emergency, reverse inconsistent policies and work alongside the media to communicate with citizens.

2

The Government must enact legally binding policy measures to reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2025 and to reduce consumption levels.

3

A national Citizen’s Assembly to oversee the changes, as part of creating a democracy fit for purpose.
