WWF occupation! Yesterday we with @wtfwwf1 and @xryouthsolidarity ended our occupation of WWF's HQ after a four days
To find out why we opted to occupy the WWF HQ check out the posts on @wtfwwf1!
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.
from sleeping in hammocks attached to vehicles in the middle of roads, to learning how to pitch a tent with pegs into concrete… 💤⛺️
- 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.
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)
The fab people at the Resilience Project are training 12 young people, in pairs, to run their own 8-week resilience programmes through their Resilience Residential, a nature retreat in Sussex (July 19-23rd). Designed by youth campaigners, if you want to develop skills that boost our resilience, climate campaigns and mental health, go check them out.
Today (22/5), 3 Youth Activists have joined in an Animal Rebellion action, blockading the distribution centre for McDonalds in Hemel Hempstead

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”
An @xryouth.bath rebel has been arrested as part of today's #RO1, where hundreds of people took to solitary protest against the governments lack of action against the climate crisis. Will YOU be a bystander in this emergency?
The second reading of the new Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill was passed on March 16th by the Conservative government. This Bill currently awards the police new powers to clamp down on protests they deem “disruptive”. It introduces new powers for policing demonstrations and makes huge changes to public order legislation to allow police to criminalise anyone using civil disobedience and direct action tactics.
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).
