Climate Truth Now, which had to be postponed due to heavy rain, will now be held on June 10! There will be disruption and civil resistance during this day, which will start at 10am in King George Square.
Nonviolent civil disobedience is at the core of Extinction Rebellion’s philosophy because climate breakdown has commenced, resources are depleted, a mass extinction event has begun, THE EMERGENCY IS NOW, the time for action is now.
XR uses civil disobedience to force change from those in power. Our power is in our numbers on the street, in our organising, in our labour. Without disrupting profits and the status quo, nothing forces those in power to change. Unjust laws, unjust power systems, must be broken and changed.
On the 10th of June we will bring this city to a stand still once again. We will meet in King George Square and take to the streets from there. Come prepared to occupy space and to resist.
Check our legals information closer to the date or on https://www.actionreadyqld.com/ for more on what to bring/not bring and how to get prepared to stand your ground in protest.
This action will take place on the unceded land of the Yuggera and Turrbal people. XR Meanjin acknowledges their sovereignty and ongoing resistance against the destructive forces of capitalism and colonialism which are fuelling the climate and ecological crisis.
