Thus, thousands of common people are rebelling for life. It is time to give power to the people and demand citizens assembly to ensure that we treat this as a crisis and ensure we keep fossil fuels in the ground! Let’s be adults, take responsibility in a respectful, non violent, disruptive and self-sacrifice action. Join us the 7 October, from the early morning!

This occupation is intended to last for the duration, although the reaction of the police, and therefore the duration of the blockade, remain uncertain.

Squares and boulevards will be taken over by citizens assemblies, permaculture workshops, children’s entertainment, concerts, conferences, collective cooking! We intend this occupation to be inclusive and family- friendly, welcoming parents and children, the young and the old.

The occupation will be divided in two zones. The first one will be focusing on issues such as food autonomy, agriculture, access to water, soil pollution, and the second one will be centered around overfishing, oceans of plastic, and intensive farming.

Title: XR – Aufstand gegen das Aussterben: Start 07. Okt Berlin

When: 7th October 

Time: 10:00 UTC+02

Where: Extinction Rebellion Berlin, Germany

Details: Life on Earth is experiencing an unprecedented global crisis: Scientists agree – we face flooding, forest fires, extreme weather conditions, crop failure and the collapse of societies. The time of denial is over. It is time to act.

Politics and conventional approaches to political engagement, such as voting, lobbying, petitions and demonstrations fail to address this crisis. History shows us a promising, democratic means to bring about social change: nonviolent, civil disobedience.

From the 7th of October we will block cities through an international rebellion and thus halt everyday routines that destroy our livelihoods. We will be thousands embarking on non-violent civil disobedience so that the government can finally respond appropriately to the climate crisis.We will rebel together in streets and squares and remain there- peacefully, creatively and colorfully. Be part of it!

Detail: Extinction Rebellion Italy has been doing actions throughout Italy during the last months.

Our leaders continue to act as if it’s business as usual, and our ‘trusted’ institutions willingly ignore the crisis we are in. They are not doing their job, so we must.

We declare Rebellion from October 7th that civil disobedience in Rome will kick up a gear for Rebellion Week. Italian rebels will descend on the Italian capital over the period to take part in actions, hunger strike, critical mass, party on the streets and disruptions every day.

Our local groups are planning a variety of actions, workshops, and talks with one aim: bring people to Prague for two days of national actions from 10th to 12th October.

October 10th – 12th – National Rebellion

On October 10th at 16:30, we will set up our gallows in Prague’s busy Namesti Republiky. Rebels from all over the Czech Republic will take their place on the ice, with their necks in the noose. One message – Extinction Rebellion is a nationwide movement of people who know that the climate and ecological crisis is so serious that our own  necks are on the line.

Friday October 11th has been christened ‘firecracker Friday’, our aim is to have a variety of actions across the city in Prague to ‘wake up’ the public and the media. We will start and end with swarming teams active in multiple locations and during the day we will remind some powerful institutions about their responsibilities. We will be asking the public broadcaster, Česká televize, to ‘tell the truth’ about the climate crisis and fulfil their promise to the public about providing appropriate information about emergencies and the state of the environment. We will be asking major energy company, ČEZ, to consider the consequences of continuing their business as usual and to ‘act now’ to reduce emissions. Finally, our XR Families group will do a die-in to remind people of the fragility of the small creatures and insects and how much our children rely on them.

On Saturday 12th October, we will bring Extinction Rebellion to life on the iconic Wenceslas Square. We are holding a legal demonstration to give people a taste of our movement with speeches, performances, talks, and workshops. We are also planning our first major act of nonviolent civil disobedience. With over 100 people willing to risk arrest so far, we are being ambitious about our target and intend to bring traffic to a stop.

Title:Medzinárodná rebélia

When: 7th October 

Time: 08:00 UTC+02

Where: Bratislava,Slovakia

Details: It is more than clear that Slovakia needs to significantly reduce its carbon emissions. Yet, our government acts (or rather doesn’t act) as if we still had plenty of time to do so. Therefore, we need to take the destiny of our country (and our planet) into our own hands. We need our government to act, to tell the truth and to set reduction of carbon emissions as its top priority. Our rebellion starts on 7 October by swarming in the city centre and will continue throughout the whole week by other direct actions and accompanying programme, then, by the end of the week, we will participate in international rebellion in Prague and on 19 October we are planning to perform a blockade. By doing so we are joining ten of thousands of rebels around the globe who are only exercising their right of civil disobedience. Together we rebel against the system that is wrong.

AFRICA 


SOUTH AFRICA


CAPE TOWN

Title: International Rebellion Weeks

When: 7th October 

Time: 00:30 UTC+02

Where: Extinction Rebellion South Africa

Detail:  To open our week of Rebellion we plan to visit media houses with the declaration and an urgent call to action. According to Afro-barometer there is an unacceptably low level of climate literacy in South Africa. Our media has not been honest with us about how serious the situation is. We demand that in the public interest the truth about the unfolding crisis be properly addressed by our media. There are parts of the country that have not seen rain for years already. Leading academics have been warning us about the situation and the need for change. There are increasingly obvious societal issues related to the environment all around the country. We are tired of seeing misinformation, there is no debate about what is happening or why. We must unite behind the science for the sake of the people of South Africa before it is too late.

The media houses may be beholden to the corporations paying for advertising and planning more profits but this is not business as usual. Each one of the people working in these companies is also part of the web of life and has a responsibility to speak out on behalf of all the life that cannot speak for itself.

We see our government continue to be involved in enabling resource extraction at the expense of the people and the land. Communities around the country suffer the terrible impacts of pollution for the benefit of companies making profits for shareholders far from SOWETO or Mpumalanga.

There are still people living under tin shacks. Each year has been hotter than the previous year and the changes seem to be speeding up. Do you not believe people should be warned about exponential heating given that most South Africans don’t have air conditioning?

We will not continue to live in these circumstances, we will act now to avoid panicking when it is already too late.

NEW YORK

Title: Global Rebellion

Direct action in multiple locations

When: Starting Oct 7

Where: Battery Park

Time: 9:30 EDT

Details: The Global Rebellion, which will begin on Monday morning, October 7th, seeks to demonstrate to government at all levels that business as usual cannot go on. Actions by Extinction Rebellion are expected to take place in over 60 cities around the world. Extinction Rebellion’s logo, consisting of an hourglass within a circle, symbolizes our awareness that time is running out. We simply don’t have time for denial or incrementalism, because the crisis is now! Even in countries that call themselves democracies, conventional demonstrations and rallies are often simply ignored by those in power. So we intend to create a worldwide disruption that can’t be ignored. 

Numerous actions will take place during the week of October 7th, focusing on institutions whose decisions greatly impact the climate crisis. Among the themes of these actions will be finance, media, education and culture. Traversing the city during Rebellion Week will be a mobile boat that Extinction Rebellion has christened “Vaquita.” It is named for an almost extinct porpoise, native to the northern part of the Gulf of California. The fact that the boat has been given the name of an endangered but not yet extinct animal symbolizes our message: that humanity is in trouble as a species, but there is still hope. The boat will be decorated with, among other things, the flags of nations whose populations are endangered by rising seas and other effects of climate change.

When: Oct 7-11

Time: Starting 14:00 EDT, continuing 8:00 EDT – 21:00 EDT

Where: Washington Square Park

Details: Beginning at 2:00 PM on October 7th at Washington Square Park, Extinction Rebellion will launch Rebel Fest, which exemplifies the importance of what we call Regenerative Culture. This has been defined as a way of life that is “resilient and healthy and can propel us into a new future and a different society to the toxic one we live in at the moment.” At Rebel Fest, Extinction Rebellion and its supporters will create the community we want to have and the world we want to see. This will involve, among other things, nonviolent direct action training, art-making, yoga, meditation and a “climate café.” On Wednesday, because children particularly require regeneration, given the psychological stress engendered by the climate emergency, there will be numerous family-friendly events and activities.
