XR newsletter #2 – Rebellion day

Rebellion Day
November 17th
In accordance with our conscience and as a clear duty to our children; our communities; this nation; and the planet; we are going to rebel against this criminally negligent government.

Our government’s abject failure to protect citizens and the next generations from the prospect of unimaginable suffering brought about by climate breakdown and social collapse is no longer acceptable.

We will no longer stand idly by and allow the destruction of all we love.

We are raging against this madness and our hearts are breaking.
We have a right and duty to rebel in the face of this tyranny of idiocy – in the face of this planned collective suicide.

We are going to act and in acting together we will overcome.

Assemble around Parliament for an act of mass civil disobedience. The day is part of a series of escalating non-violent direct actions which will be taking part in London from the 12th November.

Don’t forget to also promote the Declaration of Rebellion on Oct 31st

Can you give financial support to the Extinction Rebellion/RisingUp?

RisingUp! and the Extinction Rebellion will have many costs over the coming months including art materials, banners, fliers, personal expenses etc. The Rebellion needs a lot of funding to start in several places across the UK at the same time and to continue into 2019. Indeed, the scale of the Rebellion could be limited by the amount of money available.

If you would like to support the Rebellion financially, a regular standing order would be perfect (as would one off donations). Standing orders or money transfers should be made to our Triodos Bank Account (Sort code: 16-58-10 Account No: 20737912) in the name of Compassionate Revolution Ltd (the holding company for Rising Up!).

Alternatively, if you’re a PayPal user (or more comfortable with PayPal), PayPal payments can be made to info@risingup.org.uk
