Do you remember how in April 2019 Extinction Rebellion achieved a cultural breakthrough when they took over London for two weeks, were on the front pages of the news, and got the UK Government to declare a Climate Emergency?
Now in solidarity with Extinction Rebellion, Animal Rebellion will mobilise 10,000 animal advocates for a two-week Rebellion in London, beginning October 7th 2019.
Who are we?
Animal Rebellion is a mass volunteer movement that uses methods of nonviolent civil disobedience to end the animal agriculture and fishing industries, halt mass extinction and minimize the risk of climate breakdown and social collapse.
Why do we do what we do?
We have woken up to the climate and ecological emergency unfolding around us. We know it is of our making—which means we have the power, and responsibility, to stop it. Every day we know more about how we’ve reached this point.
Every day it becomes clearer that animal agriculture and fishing are leading causes of climate breakdown and ecosystem collapse.
Billions of land animals and trillions of fish are killed every year in an unjust and unsustainable food system that destroys rainforest, depletes our oceans, and cannot feed the planet. We know time is running out. That’s why Animal Rebellion is here—to help end these industries now and avert catastrophe.
Because we were all born into an unjust system not of our making, our demand and message is focused on changing the system. We don’t exist to ask individuals to go vegan, but to change the food system in its entirety. So while we welcome personal change, Animal Rebellion’s actions focus on system change and demands that call on the government to tell the truth, act now, and go beyond politics on the climate and ecological emergencies we face.
Help us make history! Even if you cannot stand with us in October in London - you can still contribute by donating to our fundraiser. Every contribution is vital and making a donation is a very useful way to participate!
Your donation will help us disrupt economic and political activity with actions leading up to the Rebellion as well as roadblocks, taking bridges, occupations and other escalating, non violent methods during the October Rebellion! It will also help us spread this movement globally.
Let’s write the pages of history together!
Join us, act now and support the Animal Rebellion.
