Extinction Rebellion’s 3 demands
1 - TELL THE tRUTH
Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change.
2 - ACT NOW!
Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025.
3 - BEYOND POLITICS
Government must create and be led by the decisions of a Citizens’ Assembly on climate and ecological justice.
