We want the government, corporations and media to focus
on the Climate and Ecological Emergency.
We have Three Demands…
TELL THE TRUTH
go beyond politics
We use non-violent direct action
And follow 10 Principles and Values
To get the people in power
To listen to the science and act with the urgency we need.
Are you ready Join the Rebellion?
Nottinghamshire Pension Fund Divestment Take Action Now to bring attention to the continued investment in fossil fuels and refusal to divest
Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill We have formed a group to work on this cross-organisation campaign
Sherwood Library Planning Objection We are calling for an environmental assessment to be carried out in alignment with the City Councils own 2028 Charter
THIS IS AN EMERGENCYWe are unprepared for the danger our future holds. We face floods, wildfires, extreme weather, crop failure, mass displacement and the breakdown of society. The time for denial is over. It is time to act.
Conventional approaches of voting, lobbying, petitions and protest have failed because powerful political and economic interests prevent change.
Our strategy is therefore one of non-violent, disruptive civil disobedience – a rebellion.
Extinction Rebellion, or XR for short, is an international organisation run by volunteers, who try to prevent the worst from the ongoing climate and ecological crisis. We need emergency action from our governments to safeguard our future.
XR Nottingham is getting bigger and stronger. We’ve highlighted the climate crisis on the streets of Nottingham, joined rebellions in London, have good relationships with other local campaign groups and some local politicians.
But time is short and there is so much to do.
