Extinction Rebellion Nova Scotia



Extinction Rebellion Nova Scotia

...is part of an international effort that started in the UK in the fall of 2018 and is now active across Canada and worldwide.

  • Our governments are failing to protect us. Current policies are gassing the planet and stealing our children's future. To safeguard human survival, we must end all supports and investments in fossil fuels and transition to net zero carbon emissions as quickly as possible.
  • Peaceful, non-violent direct action and civil disobedience are effective ways to force governments to take notice: think Martin Luther King Jr, Gandhi, the Suffragettes.

WE DECLARE:

INTERNATIONAL NON-VIOLENT REBELLION AGAINST THE WORLD’S GOVERNMENTS FOR CRIMINAL INACTION ON THE ECOLOGICAL CRISIS
WE DEMAND:
  • GOVERNMENTS TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT THE ECOLOGICAL CRISIS
  • WWII-SCALE CLIMATE MOBILIZATION FOR ZERO EMISSIONS & DRAWDOWN BY 2025
  • PARTICIPATORY DEMOCRACY TO OVERSEE THE CHANGES
In February 2019 we will make a Declaration of Rebellion in Nova Scotia followed by acts of Non-Violent Direct Action across the province, by people like you and me. An International Rebellion Week will take place 15-21 April 2019 and follow-up actions until our governments tell the truth about the climate crisis and declare a state of emergency.
