the rebellions back
23 - 8 -2021
During the pandemic we've been told this government follows the science. Unfortunately this doesn't seem to be the case with climate change where our government has continuously ignored the science. We as concerned citizens can not allow this to continue and our voices to be ignored.
Welcome to extinction rebellion guildford
Hello and welcome to Extinction Rebellion Guildford, We are a group of like minded and caring individuals coming from all walks of life with the aim to help protect our planet. Over the last few years our government and many of our newspapers have tried to tarnish us and this goal, unbelievably so. Our message is simple, that we need to listen to our scientists and to wake up to the harm we have been causing to our planet, and we need to start doing something about it.
If it's your first time here then we're very happy you've found us. Please take some time to have a look over our website, see what we do, what values we hold, and think how you may like to get involved in. There's a role for everyone !
We currently have meetings via Zoom every few weeks on a Thursday evening, but hopefully this will be in person soon !
To see what we are up too on a regular basis the best way is to sign up for our weekly newsletters as well as joining our Telegram App group, please go to the events page for more information.
We are in a climate and ecological emergency. The United Nations has declared that we have as little as 10 years before we pass the point at which climate breakdown becomes irreversible - if we don't act immediately.
Once we pass this tipping point, there is no return. The food supplies that we rely on, the land that we farm and live on, the air that we breathe, and the water that we drink are all under threat.
This existential crisis threatens every man, woman, and child on the planet. Yet rather than protect the people they were elected to serve, politicians cave to the pressure of lobbyists and corporations, granting licenses for further oil exploration, approving plans for airport expansion, and failing to enforce legally binding limits on air pollution.
Our governments have failed to uphold our fundamental right for a secure future on this planet.
Rather than allowing a few billionaires to become immeasurably richer whilst the world hurtles toward destruction, our governments must stand up for humanity and make the necessary changes to ensure the survival of not just our species, but of all life on earth.
Extinction Rebellion will no longer tolerate government inaction.
The future of our planet, the future of our children, and the lives of our brothers and sisters in the global south are under threat.
OUR 3 DEMANDS:
1. TELL THE TRUTH - the government must declare a climate emergency, and act according to this truth, by reframing all future policy decision to be appropriate to the emergency we find ourselves in.
2. ACT NOW - to ensure that the UK is carbon neutral by 2025. This is a very difficult task. The alternative is extinction of almost all life on earth and collapse of human civilisation.
3. instruct CITIZENS ASSEMBLIES - after 30 years of inaction, it is clear governments have failed us. We therefore demand that citizens assemblies be formed so that we as the public can decide how to tackle the climate emergency, and so that we can ensure the UK government finally starts acting in the best interests of those they are elected to serve.
