Extinction Rebellion taking bold action

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debateResearch

Abstract

While Brexit negotiations in the UK have dominated Australian news headlines in the last week, there has been less attention given to preparations for Rebellion Day and how protests played out in London on 17 November. Rebellion Day has been organised by Extinction Rebellion: a grassroots organisation that is spearheading a campaign of mass direct action and peaceful civil disobedience aimed at forcing government to address climate change. The movement is rebelling not only against government inaction in the face of climate change, but against the existential threat to our own existence.
