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.


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.

The thing that makes Extinction Rebellion so exciting and rewarding to be part of is that we don’t “just” turn up on the day of the protest, march down a road and then disappear again. Before, during and after our rebellions, there are 1,001 things that you can do to contribute to the rebellion. This rebellion won’t organize itself, it’s a joint effort. Any skill set is of use: Technician, artist, project manager, mum — you name it! So join your local group, or mail to, and we'll help you on your way!

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.
