Our house is on fire. This metaphora was used by Greta Thunberg to describe the severe state of our world – and evolved into reality since the Amazon rainforest is literally burning. (𝘈𝘯𝘥 𝘪𝘵 𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘥𝘰𝘦𝘴). Yet, still a lot of people are not aware of the dire situation of planet earth. And many others simply do not know what do about this crisis.
What a great reason to mark 𝐒𝐮𝐧𝐝𝐚𝐲, 𝟏𝟎 𝐍𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐦𝐛𝐞𝐫, 𝟏𝟐:𝟑𝟎𝐩𝐦 in your agenda!
On that Sunday, Extinction Rebellion Utrecht invites everyone to join our event during Le Mini Who? at Hof van Cartesius.
Our event is divided into two parts.
1) In the first part we will give a “Heading for Extinction (and what do about it” talk that explains a) the science behind the climate and ecological crisis we’re facing, and b) why Extinction Rebellion follows a strategy of mass civil disobedience to tackle the situation.
2) In the second part, we will give a short version of our Non-Violent Direct Action (NVDA) training in which you learn in fun ways techniques that we apply during our civil disobedience.
The event is for free and given in English.
Le Mini Who? is a spin-off festival of Le Guess Who?. It turns venues, cafes, art spaces and even a fire station of the fast-developing and creative area Cartesius into improvised venues for (mainly) Dutch underground acts to play. Come and catch a set by one of the unknown and talented bands, discover this part of Utrecht and enjoy poetry, performances and fine arts.
