September Rebellion

#CitizensDecide

1 & 15 September - The Hague

On the 1st and 15th in The Hague and from the 18th until the 21st of September in Amsterdam, we will take to the streets peacefully and corona proof. Join us!

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 allows citizens to decide on fair climate policy by forming a Citizen’s Assembly. This has proven to be an effective way to create strong policy; citizens from all walks of life decide on policy, with input from experts and unhindered by lobbyists or party politics.

A recent Citizen’s Assembly in France has delivered strong climate policy: France is incorporating combating climate change into its constitution, is creating legislation against ecocide and is investing 15 billion in the green transition. There is no more time to wait, the Netherlands need ambitious climate policy now.

  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.
