FOSSIL FUELS ARE SPILLING THE BLOOD OF OUR CHILDREN

Yesterday XRY targeted the fossil fuel industry and the government’s funding/subsidising of it by visually depicting the harm it is doing to young people. the futures of the youth are being gambled for the sake of profit and oil, yet we have little decision making power; we are paying and will continue to pay the price for the greed of a few and we have had enough.

we got a lot of attention with these so we just thought we'd clear a few things up

- acab stands for 'all cops are bastardised' (by the system), which means that each individual who joins the police force joins and comes to represent a system built on oppression.

THE #ImpossibleRebellion IS HERE!!

we started gathering at trafalgar square to hear speeches before marching to st martins street / garrix street, where we came across a massive pink table in the road reading “come to the table” - people are currently on top of it, as well as locked on to the legs and there is also a van with someone from xr youth locked underneath it (more on this soon)

Today (22/5), 3 Youth Activists have joined in an Animal Rebellion action, blockading the distribution centre for McDonalds in Hemel Hempstead

Located approximately 18 feet off the ground, these young activists said the following “McDonalds embodies every argument there is to go plant based. We’re doing this for the animals, the planet and the people. Animal Agriculture is the 3rd biggest emitter of Greenhouse Gases worldwide and we are here to urge McDonalds to transition to a plant based menu by 2025”

Quick toolkit for some practical steps to oppose the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts bill

The second reading of the new Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill was passed on March 16th by the Conservative government.

Have you realised how society sees nature as something to be conquered and dominated in order to exploit and profit from its resources? 💪🌲💰

The report by the Independent Panel of Experts investigating WWF’s role in alleged human rights abuses committed in protected areas under its aegis, published by WWF on 24 November 2020, found that the conservation organization repeatedly fell short of meeting its human rights obligations over years in multiple countries

[...] failing to adequately prevent, respond to and remedy multiple allegations of murder, rape, torture, and severe physical violence committed by WWF-supported ecoguards against indigenous peoples and local communities (IPLCs).
