A Look back at Rebellion Week

62 Rebels arrested in NYC demanding CLimate Emergency Declaration at NYC City Hall

Thank you to all the Rebels who came out to demand the NYC government declare a Climate Emergency. We are making history with people all around the world as we take action in the face of climate change. We have more events planned for this week, so come and take part in the Rebellion! Go to facebook for more pictures.

In NYC on Wednesday April 17th, hundreds rallied at City Hall, took part in Citizen Assemblies, and wrote their messages on the sidewalk to the NYC government. 60 Climate Rebels took over the roadway of the Brooklyn Bridge, shutting it down for over 45 minutes, as 2 Rebels scaled the traffic lights and hung a banner to demand NYC declare a Climate Emergency. All 62 were arrested and have been released with court dates set for June.

On the heels of the UK’s Declaration of Rebellion, London declared a climate emergency and aim of carbon neutrality by 2030. We don’t think NYC should take a back seat to any city and certainly not one across the pond. Here’s what we’ve got in the works:
