Our Institutions Are Killing Us
What a strange and tragic time we find ourselves in.
Ecosystems are collapsing around us, with up to 90% of species on this planet at risk of extinction(1). Climate breakdown is already killing or displacing those of us on the frontlines, while headed for the rest of us in the coming decades. Without massive action, catastrophe looms over us all. It is a tragic, grief-inducing state.
Meanwhile, the systems around us hum along as if nothing is happening. Banks continue to funnel hundreds of billions of dollars into the perpetrating industries, emissions continue to hit records highs, and governments continue to allow this tragedy to unfold.
Put simply: Our institutions are killing us.
So many of us see the situation, but feel powerless and disconnected. With Extinction Rebellion, we believe only through joining together in mass non-violent civil disobedience, disrupting business as usual en-mass to change consciousness, do we have a chance.
Join us in the streets on February 7th.
In joy, love, and courage, we will demand that our institutions tell the truth by declaring climate and ecological emergency.
And this is just the beginning. We ask you to join us off the streets to build the relationships, community, and regenerative culture needed to change our damaging systems, ensure a just transition, and to weather the coming storm together.
