As a movement, it is first and foremost our principles and values that bring us together – these are the basis of our agreed ways of working together. It is these principles and values that define our group culture and how we behave - some of which differentiate us from other campaigns. Anyone who acts within the principles and values is an XR sovereign rebel - this is autonomy in action! You don’t need permission to rebel.
