18 May 2019 | XR Folkestone Talk: Heading for extinction and what to do
Sat 18 May, 5-7pm
Public Talk | All Welcome
International Rebellion achieved a lot, but we still have a long way to go….and more exciting events and actions ahead!
Our aims are still clear: to pressure policy makers to take immediate urgent action on what is now the undeniable breakdown of our climate and ecosystems.
Human beings cannot survive without these two things; we need to halt our senseless destruction of them through immediate, far-reaching political and economic change.
The usual methods of protesting and writing letters have proven inadequate.
It’s time for civil disobedience and nonviolent direct action.
This talk will briefly cover climate and ecological science, what the impacts will be if humanity continues on its current trajectory of environmental destruction, what political and social changes are needed, and what you can do to get involved.
Our emphasis is on nonviolence. This is a peaceful, but powerful movement.
