ACT NOW – REBELS
We are unprepared for the danger our future holds. We face floods, wildfires, extreme weather, crop failure, mass displacement and the breakdown of society. The time for denial is over. It is time to act.
Conventional approaches of voting, lobbying, petitions and protest have failed because powerful political and economic interests prevent change. Our strategy is therefore one of nonviolent, disruptive civil disobedience – a rebellion.
Watch a video of Heading for Extinction and What to Do About It – a talk created by Extinction Rebellion to 1) really wake us up to the fact that we’re facing a emergency, and 2) show us what we can DO about it. Have a kleenex, a hanky, or a good friend handy, but also be ready to take step #2:
Reach out. It can be overwhelming facing the crisis we’re in by ourselves. Right now, XR America is in the formative stages, but starting in April we hope to have mobilizers available throughout the country for talks and trainings, ready to help you start or join a chapter, or get involved with mobilizing yourself! Then we’ll have built up our numbers and will be ready to hit the streets when the coronavirus has subsided and it’s safe.
