Extinction Rebellion NYC
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. (Support the Rebellion Fund here!)

SPEAK THE TRUTH: In every conversation, every political action, every demand you make, tell the truth about the climate crisis. Don’t settle for anything less than zero emissions by 2025.
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:
Learn about our campaign for NYC to declare a climate emergency declaration and read draft declaration.
The scientists have spoken and the people are rising. In cities and towns across the world we are planting the Extinction Rebellion flag, showing the world we will not idly stand by while the earth burns. This is just the beginning. Join us!
