We cannot carry on like this. The system is killing us.

The Government is failing to keep us safe. They ignored the warnings about coronavirus and now they’re ignoring warnings of a 4˚C world from their official Committee on Climate Change. A 4˚C world could mean billions of human deaths – with racially marginalised communities, and those in the Global South on the front line.

We need action. Now.

Without drastic action, Earth’s temperature is on course to rise by a terrifying 4°C by the end of the century. That amount of heating would make some parts of the world impossibly hot for people and animals to live on. Sea levels will rise, and could flood the homes of hundreds of millions of people, eventually submerging some countries completely.

On 1st September, the Rebellion returns to the streets of the UK

As MPs return from Summer recess, we will demand that Parliament begin the process of putting 'The Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill' into law, which would make a Citizens' Assembly a fundamental part of Government for the first time in UK history.

The Rebellion will not just be focused on London though. Welsh Rebels will join us in Rebellion by causing disruption in Cardiff, with rebels in the North and Scotland formulating plans as we speak.

We invite everyone who is sick of the lies, injustice, inequality and harm, to join us - and to donate to help this rebellion win.

We are at an intersection of global crises.

Climate, COVID-19, racial injustice – all are symptoms of a toxic system that is driving us to extinction – a system built on economic inequality, extraction, the destruction of nature, and exploitation

Enough is enough.

We have an opportunity NOW as we emerge from the pandemic to build a better world, but business-as-usual is fighting to regain its hold. We can’t let that happen!

Donate to help us grow local groups, train and support thousands of rebels right across the UK - and create the powerful rebellion we need to win.

We know times are hard. Thank you for what you can give.

With love (and rage),
