XR newsletter #0 – 5/8 2018

First Extinction Rebellion newsletter is out! 🔥

WELCOME TO THE EXTINCTION REBELLION NEWSLETTER!

As we fall further and further into the climate crisis, the time for
dramatic action to try and change our course is now. Thank you to
everyone that recognises this and has come to one of our 18 talks and
workshops over the last few months. We are now scaling up the campaign
and introducing this regular newsletter to keep you all up to date on
what is going on.

UPDATES FROM THE REBELLION

The current heatwave is just the latest example of the effects of
runaway climate change. Record breaking temperatures across the global
[1], hundreds missing after a dam burst in Laos and expected
temperatures of almost 50C in Spain and Portugal this weekend. We
can’t let the conversation end here. The government must declare a
climate emergency and bring about immediate measures to end the use of
fossil fuels and drawdown the carbon in our atmosphere.

This is going to be the new normal, and even the new ‘cool’, unless
we do something about it. And we are!

Below are a series of talks and workshops that are planned in for around
the UK over the next few months- save the dates!

For those that want to start organizing with the rebellion we have set
up two conference calls, one on Monday at 7.30pm [3] and one on Tuesday
at 3pm [4] to explain about the different working groups, how you can
help out and answer any questions about the process.

(Links to join the conference calls are on the FB event pages)

For more information on the working groups and generally what is
involved with the rebellion please check out the ‘How to get involved’
[5] and ‘Briefing’ [6] documents.
