Many XR Derby people are uncomfortable with risking arrest and high profile actions. XR’s strategy is now around mass participation and outreach, with a series of events leading up to having over 100,000 people on the streets of London in the spring next year.
Now is the time to get involved and support XR, without any pressure to get arrested. The focus is on outreach and creating a mass movement. It will be near impossible for the government to oppress or ignore peaceful protest at massive scale.
There is an occupation festival of resistance 10th to 13th September, disruptive actions on October 14th, and a mass action (100,000+) in spring 2023. Bus tours and other momentum building phases in between.
