Extinction Rebellion: Nonviolently Hitting Our Stride

| Resist!

As we approached the first weekend of the October Rebellion, it was humbling and inspiring to see that rebels showed no sign of slowing down.

In fact, day 5 was marked by a series of exciting milestones: XR Dublin had their first arrests; XR Israel reached a new level of direct action, as rebels glued themselves to the National Stock Exchange in Tel Aviv; and Aussie rebels pioneered the delightful new concept of Civil Disco-bedience.

Hunger strikers in Rome met the Environment Minister yesterday.

While some sites have been cleared of permanent roadblocks, rebels stayed resilient everywhere: hunger strikers in Italy entered their fifth day, and declared their intent to continue until the Italian prime minister agreed to meet them. Rebels in Australia were undeterred by their government’s plans to fast-track laws targeting protesters. While in Paris, rebels withdrew from Chatelet but only in order to later reappear in a yet more disruptive location!

Day 5 also featured beautiful instances of solidarity between human beings facing the same fate: in Paris, the Yellow Vests supported XR actions, in spite of police attempts to set the groups at odds; and in Buenos Aires, rebels came out to support the native Argentinian population on the Last Day of Free Peoples, which has been celebrated since before the start of the Spanish invasion of the Americas in 1492.

In the words of a rebel in France: ‘each in our own way, but ultimately together.

That is how we will win.

    It seems clear that ALL THESE XR’s are under a delusion!

    I would really like to know what they’re really READY TO CHANGE, first with themselves, then to try with the rest of Umankind!

    Climate Change!

    Freedom of Speech Tricks!

  • Thanks for a hint.
    But they do not publish some of my comments with direct links to documents of funding this kind of Kyoto Protocol prolongation promotion. I think this their customer restriction.

    Also, is it possible to insert imges?

    The neocolonial movement “Extinction Rebellion (XR)” acts in concert with space aliens. It may seem at first glance. In fact, the “Extinction Rebellion (XR)” acts together with well-known hoaxers.

    This week we were proud to work in collaboration with the WOMAD Festival and Extinction Rebellion (XR), who asked us to create a 300ft XR logo at the WOMAD Festival site to highlight food security issues surrounding climate change.

    Images can be posted and if no other links are in the text it won’t go to pre-censorship.

  • Thanks for info. I will try it next time if this site will spread Colonial Climate Change Propaganda again (for the glory of Kyoto Protocol prolongation next year).

  • it works
