- that the Government declares a Climate and Ecological Emergency, recognising the need for rapid transformation of the economic system.
- a Citizens’ Assembly, equipping our regions and communities with the resources and the authority to ensure a managed transition to an equitable post-growth society.
- that the Government enacts a comprehensive, legally-binding National Emergency Plan which phases out the extraction and import of fossil fuels by 2025, and prioritises restoration of biodiversity and the preservation of our natural environment.
International Rebellion Week
From Monday 15th April Extinction Rebellion will take to the streets of Belgium, and of cities around the world, to demand action. Our message to our governments is this:
We are facing an unprecedented global emergency. The science is clear; we have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown, and we are in the midst of the sixth mass extinction: an extinction of our own making.
It is time to act. Declare a Climate and Ecological Emergency now!
