Extinction Rebellion Evening Rush Hour Action
Start: Monday, September 23, 2019• 3:30 PM
End: Monday, September 23, 2019• 5:30 PM
Join Extinction Rebellion in a fun direct action to bring awareness to the climate emergency and have an introduction to non-violent civil disobedience. We welcome your participation at either a low or no level of arrest risk. We welcome all people, please come to one (or both) of our events on 9/23 and join the rebellion to ensure our own future!
The climate emergency is real and we must speak the truth and act as if the truth is real. Extinction Rebellion is a movement based on non-violent civil disobedience to bring about the rapid social change needed for our own survival. Extinction Rebellion U.S. also demands a just transition that prioritizes the most vulnerable people and indigenous sovereignty; establishes reparations and remediation led by and for Black people, Indigenous people, people of color and poor communities for years of environmental injustice. Our goal is to participate in and grow our non-violent civil disobedience until the government cannot ignore our demands, and it then fills its obligation of the social contract that the government should protect its people from harm and death.
This event is for the 9/23 afternoon (3:30pm) action. There is a separate action at the same location on 9/23 in the morning at 7:00am.
