On September 21, 2020, Extinction Rebellion (XR) America rebels across the United States took to the streets in one-day actions around the theme “We Want to Live!” We demanded that our local governments tell the truth and sound the alarm about the climate catastrophe destroying our beautiful Earth and extinguishing our children’s futures.
These Acts of Rebellion were small, but their purpose was Movement Building. We aim to:
⇒ Wake people up from business as usual through disruption or dramatic acts
⇒ Communicate that THIS IS AN EMERGENCY
⇒ Show we mean business and attract new rebels to participate
⇒ Practice our Nonviolent Direct Action Skills
⇒ Build relationships with our fellow rebels
⇒ Get more and more people ready to participate in future, organized MASS civil disobedience that will pressure our governments to accept our Demands
