Animal Rebellion

International Rebellion – UK Action – Continues 7 October 2019

In partnership with Extinction Rebellion, Animal Rebellion will mobilise 10,000 animal advocates for a two-week Rebellion in London, beginning October 7th. We will take part in nonviolent civil disobedience to demand system change, and make sure the need to end animal farming and fishing, and transition to a plant-based food system is central to this conversation. 

We are partnering with Extinction Rebellion because they are growing more powerful every day. We believe that this movement is the route to ending the industries of animal farming and fishing and achieving justice for animals, because we know that climate catastrophe and ecological collapse cannot be averted while these industries continue to exist.

Reclaim the Power Action Camp

Reclaim the Power (RTP), the UK-based direct action network, are back this summer with an action camp: Power Beyond Borders.

It takes place in the South East of England from the 26-30 July. For the past few years RTP has been best known for its anti-fracking activism, particularly targeting Cuadrilla’s Preston New Road site in Lancashire.

Fracking in the UK looks to have been stopped before it got started. That’s why RTP is expanding its focus. Power Beyond Borders will target both new gas infrastructure and the Tory government’s hostile environment policy, says The Ecologist.

The  mass action camp will equip you to get involved in a way that works for you.

The camp will be at a secret location in the South East of England, within reach of London. We will let you know exactly where nearer the time.

It is family-friendly with a kids space with activities, toys, books and games for children.

International Rebellion UK – Shut Down London!

Our leaders have failed us. It’s time to rebel – and have a damn good time doing it.

Climate breakdown and ecological collapse threaten our existence. Another world is possible, and it’s just within reach. It’s going to take everything we’ve got to get there. So we’re pulling out all the stops and rising up in a full-scale Rebellion against this twisted system to save ourselves and the natural world from extinction.

Meet at Parliament Square at 11am on Monday 15th of April. Come to London to stay – this is not a one-day march. Book two weeks off work, or go on strike. Think festival, arrange to stay with friends or bring camping gear. We will be blockading the city, engaging in civil disobedience, taking direct action, and joined by amazing acts will be performing at sites to be revealed closer to the time.
