WHY ARE WE REBELLING?

We are moving towards irreversible, catastrophic climate change and mass extinction. Instead of 1.5 degrees of warming, we are heading for an increase of 4 degrees according to the climate experts of the United Nations. This has drastic consequences for all life on this planet. Radical change is needed, but politics are failing.

We demand that the government starts taking the climate and ecological crisis seriously, and acts now to do what is necessary to ensure a safe future.

 

  1. TELL THE TRUTH about the climate and ecological crisis that threatens our existence and communicate the urgency for change.
  2. ACT NOW to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025 in a just and fair manner.
  3. 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 1050 locations in 62 countries. We’re growing fast. We carry out peaceful, non-violent, disruptive actions to pressure governments into protecting all life on this planet.

With the Earth Parade, we will be visiting Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht, The Hague and Nijmegen during the week of April 9-16. These five cities will organize legal demonstrations where rebels and non-rebels can meet, regenerate and participate in all kinds of activities in a safe and responsible way. Within the corona measures there will be a great program with panel discussions, workshops, musical performances, speeches, and much more! The full program can be found on the Facebookpage per town: 10 April - Utrecht / 11 April - Amsterdam / 13 April - Rotterdam / 14 April - Nijmegen / 16 April - Den Haag
Due to corona, Earth Parade activities that cannot take place in-person can be attended online in the form of a Digital Festival on April 17 and 18! This online platform features a wide variety of panels, art, music and workshops to regenerate, connect, learn and rebel. There is a cinema, music lounge, safe space and XRCafé to catch up with all your XR friends. It's a great place to get to know our movement (better), so invite everyone you know to our collective closing of the Spring Rebellion! See the full program here!

Running an action as big as this involves a lot of logistics, we need to rent toilets, arrange sleeping spots, buy food and drinks, create art installations and arrange a multitude of other things. Supporting us financially is highly appreciated.
