What is extinction rebellion doing during the COVID-19 Coronavirus crisis?

We’ve already been thinking about the breakdown of society, because we are concerned about the climate and ecological emergencies. For humanity to survive these crises, we need to support each other and build strong community bonds. We need to be compassionate and supportive of our family, friends, neighbours and strangers in these difficult times.

Extinction Rebellion exists to protect life, both now and for future generations. Right now, we all need to prioritise public health, follow advice from scientists and doctors, and be mindful of the most vulnerable in our communities.

Mass public gatherings will not be organised by Extinction Rebellion until it is safe to do so. We are running online campaigns both for helping communities affected by COVID-19 and to keep demanding urgent action on the climate emergency.  Here’s one:

#AloneTogether

This calls for an evolution – not a shelving – of our rebellion. This is a time to remember what we are rebelling for – a thriving and just world of regenerative cultures that can weather crises, foster cooperation and look after each other on a global scale.  Check it out:
