We are just getting started.
Give Monthly— Help us Growth in the UK and Around the World!
We need your help.
Extinction Rebellion (XR) is moving into its next phase and we need your help! Life on Earth is dying, we refuse to enter this apocalypse without doing all we can to unite, be the change that is needed and insist our governments step up.
Your monthly gift will help with essential costs as we plan and orchestrate the next phase which will culminate in mass rebellion starting April 15th 2019.
XR was launched at the end of October 2018 with the aim of sparking an international movement that would challenge Governments through the tools of civil disobedience. We are delighted with the progress made and the thousands of people who have become part of our network with our shared goals of:
The Government must tell the truth about the ecological emergency, reverse inconsistent policies and work alongside the media to communicate with citizens.
The Government must enact legally binding policy measures to reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2025 and to reduce consumption levels to deal with “ecological overshoot” (using too much of the planets resources).
We demand a Citizens Assembly to set the policy and initiate the changes, as part of creating a democracy fit for purpose.
Our first crowd funder raised over £115k and with this we were able to do some vital things including:
-pay for many art and logistics costs like printing leaflets, banner materials, kit
-support travel costs for thousands of people by subsiding coach travel to London
-support accommodation for those that needed it
-pay for office space and room hire in London so we could function as a network
-pay some people “volunteer living expenses” – no one gets a salary in XR but for those in vital roles unable to earn income as they put in vast amounts of volunteer energy, we make payments when we can so they can cover bills etc.
-20% of our crowdfunder goes to support growth outside the UK
We need to carry on doing these things, to carry on scaling up and organising in communities across the world. Everyone is vital to our chances of success and making a donation is one very useful way to participate.
Until we win!
