Rebel without borders
Join the international rebellion
Begins 7 October '19
We are in the sixth mass extinction and we will face climate catastrophe if business goes on as usual. The Dutch government is not doing remotely enough to avert this. We rebel for life. For ourselves, for you, and for our (grand)children. From the 7th of October on, we will take it to the streets. In Amsterdam, Berlin, London, New York, Melbourne and many other cities worldwide. And for this we need all the help we can get.
JOIN REBEL WITHOUT BORDERS
Are you concerned about the climate as well? Then join us in Amsterdam. The action will be attended by a wide audience, from worried students to concerned grandparents. Everyone is welcome to join for either a few hours, a day or even for the full time until it ends. After 15 successful hours, the blockade at the Museumbrug was removed. We’ll therefore plan new actions every day throughout the city. Keep an eye on social media to know where and when you can join us.
Join the Telegram broadcast if you want to be updated on the practicalties of the Rebellion.
WHY ARE WE REBELLING?
We’re currently on a path of catastrophic climate change and mass extinction, instead of hitting 1,5 degree warming, we’re headed towards 4 degrees, which will greatly affect the lives of everyone and everything on the planet. Radical change is necessary but our government is not responding fast enough, read our demands below.
- TELL THE TRUTH about the climate and ecological crisis that threatens our existence and communicate the urgency for change.
- ACT NOW to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025 in a just and fair manner.
- LET CITIZENS DECIDE by establishing a Citizen’s Assembly which takes the lead on climate and ecological justice.
WHO IS EXTINCTION REBELLION?Extinction Rebellion is an international movement of people like you and me. The movement was founded in the UK in 2018 and now we’re active in 631 cities in 54 countries. We’re growing fast. We carry out peaceful, non-violent, disruptive actions to pressure governments into protecting all life on this planet.

We organise NVDA (Nonviolent Direct Action) trainings in different cities. You can check our events page to see which one is nearest to you. There will be NVDA trainings on-site but we highly recommended you to attend one beforehand. In any case it is highly recommended to join an Affinity group: a group of 4-12 people that have something in common, stick together during the action and give each other support throughout. You can join as an individual or as a group and get the required training by filling in one of the forms below:Individuals form
