#LoveAndRageSydney

CBD – Sydney NSW | Saturday December 19 | 2pm Hyde Park Fountain

We waited until it is safe and now the time has come to bring the climate crisis back into focus.

Welcome to the Festival of Love and Rage taking over Hyde Park in Sydney on Saturday 19th December, 2PM Hyde Park Fountain! 

A defiant, beautiful act of civil disobedience blocking the streets to demand climate action. Designed by all of us, our festival of rebellion will stop the city to celebrate the things we love about our beautiful world, and rage against the things that are actively destroying it.

We are gathering as a coalition of diverse voices to state that we’ve had enough! Our leaders in politics, in the media, in profit-driven corporations need to hear us cry ‘We want to live!’

It is time to act. You know that business as usual is failing as usual – it doesn’t matter who you vote for, what petitions you sign, what social media posts you ‘Like’ or ‘Share’. 

We need to rebel.

In real life. 

For Life’s sake.

Civil disobedience is the last resort we can turn to, when our system is not able to change fast enough. It is a normal part of democracy when our political systems no longer look after our needs. It is how we rise up and reset things. Women’s rights, civil rights, worker’s rights – all have been won by people standing up, sitting in and locking on when it counted.

This is YOUR Rebellion – We welcome rebels from all over our beautiful state of New South Wales to unite in the heart of Sydney and occupy Hyde Park and the surrounding streets. 

Together we will bring life and colour, music and dance, love and rage! We will turn this destructive system of buying and taking, into one of giving. We will turn the emphasis they put on our individual actions, into a demonstration of collective action!

What will you give to the Festival of Love and Rage?

Some ideas:

  • Can you risk arrest? Will you block a road to make the festival happen?
  • Can you bake a cake? Can you bake 10? Tick the box for ‘Rebel Chef’
  • Got a clean 20 litre water container you could fill and bring along?
  • Do you have a performance you can offer?
  • Will you be there, but prefer to watch from a distance? Why not be a ‘Legal Observer’?
  • Can you paint a banner, make a flag or placard showing your thoughts and feelings?

SIGN THE PLEDGE NOW to confirm you will be there on the day and receive all the details.

Keep in the loop and be as involved as you want to be. If we keep doing the things we’ve been doing, we’ll keep getting the same results, on a trend to climate catastrophe. Let’s support each other to step up and build this Festival of Love and Rage!
