up to you now.
This isn’t a distant apocalypse. People all over the world are suffering and dying right now. Whole species are going extinct. And it will only get worse. The time to act is now.
It’s already begun to happen to others. Next, it will happen to you, and everybody you love, too.
We must rebel.
You can’t count on us or Greta to do this for you. You have to look inside yourself and rebel.
Starting on October 7th, for 2 weeks, Extinction Rebellion is calling an International Rebellion. Together, we will peacefully occupy the centres of power and shut them down until governments act on the Climate and Ecological Emergency.
Leave your desk. Invite your boss. Walk out of school. Switch off the TV. Put down your phone. Get on the streets. And bring everybody.
You are called on. If you do one thing with your life, do this. Not later, now.
Respect existence or expect resistance.
