We Demand:

These demands only represent XR US. They are still in the process of development.

 

1

That the Government must tell the truth about the climate and wider ecological emergency, it must reverse all policies not in alignment with that position and must work alongside the media to communicate the urgency for change including what individuals, communities and businesses need to do.

 
 

2

The Government must enact legally-binding policies to reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2025 and take further action to remove the excess of atmospheric greenhouse gases. It must cooperate internationally so that the global economy runs on no more than half a planet’s worth of resources per year.

 
 

3

We do not trust our Government to make the bold, swift and long-term changes necessary to achieve these changes and we do not intend to hand further power to our politicians. Instead we demand a Citizens’ Assembly to oversee the changes, as we rise from the wreckage, creating a democracy fit for purpose.

 
 

4

We demand a just transition that prioritizes the most vulnerable people and indigenous sovereignty; establishes reparations and remediation led by and for Black people, Indigenous people, people of color and poor communities for years of environmental injustice, establishes legal rights for ecosystems to thrive and regenerate in perpetuity, and repairs the effects of ongoing ecocide to prevent extinction of human and all species, in order to maintain a livable, just planet for all.

JOIN THE REBELLION

Extinction Rebellion US Local Groups listed here are autonomous and are not vetted.

Anyone can start an XR group as long as they agree with the four demands and principles. Because we have all been socialized in a society rooted in oppression, any group can become a microcosm of the larger society and it takes hard work to develop a healthy regenerative culture where we share power and lift each other up.

If you are initiating a local group know that you must organize and bring in as many people as possible, while developing conflict transformation practices to deal with conflicts as they arise.

If you are part of a local group and experience abuse or other serious problems, and you don’t feel adequately supported to deal with the issue locally, please email the XR US national team so we can support you however we can: xr [at] extinctionrebellion dot US.
