Brief Description of Society Activities
We are the Newcastle branch of the international grassroots movements Extinction Rebellion. We focus on furthering the demands of XR which are to get the government to tell the truth about the climate and ecological emergency, set a target of net-zero emissions for 2025 and create and be led by the decisions of a citizens' assembly on the climate crisis.
We use a method of non-violent civil disobedience to achieve these aims and bring the climate crisis to the attention of the public. We put pressure on those in positions of power, including Newcastle University, to bring about change.
We will participate in demonstrations and outreach to help inform the public using the most relevant and up to date science available
This is no longer just a fight to save our planet, it's a fight to save ourselves. We need you - whoever you are, however much time you have - to help build a powerful movement. You're fighting for your future and the future of life on Earth.
Meeting Days, Times and Venues
Our next meeting will be held over zoom on Sunday 1st November. Please join our Facebook group where more details will be posted closer to the time.
