If you’re in London on the 14th of April, please consider coming to support our incredible Earth Marchers as they make their way into London. Some of them have walked from as far away as Land's End, and deserve every bit of welcome we can give!
Marchers will be staying at sites around the edge of London over the night of the 13th, and on the 14th will enter London in earnest, converging for a welcome reception at Hyde Park.
The reception at Hyde Park will include speeches, music (details to come), dancing and food. Marchers and rebels alike are encouraged to set up tents to stay in Hyde Park overnight, ready to join the rebellion as soon as they rise in the morning!
We'll see you there!

Briefing Guide for Participants

This document provides practical information for anyone interested in joining the Rebellion in the UK. If you are an international group, please feel free to adapt this information for the rebellion in your own country.

This is it! From 15 April we hit the streets to demand emergency government action.

We are focusing on capital and major cities where the government and big business are based. Those of us unable to be in the capitals will take action in other localities.

We will block streets every day to build up pressure on the authorities. We’re committed to giving what it takes as everything’s at stake. We are here to Tell the Truth and Act as if it’s Real. Book two weeks off work from 15th April.

Civil Disobedience works when it’s disruptive, peaceful and respectful and undertaken on a mass scale. We don’t want to disrupt people, but our governments’ criminal negligence over 30 years leaves us no choice. If we had functioning democracies we wouldn’t need to. We’ve tried petitions, marches, letters, reports, papers, meetings, even direct actions. They’ve failed. Emissions continued to rise. Governments prioritise the short term interests of the economic elites, so we have to disrupt the economy to get their attention. To get our three demands met. To save all we love.

We need thousands of people to take to the streets, so spread the word. From the first night, we’ll start a wide diversity of cultural events – music, theatre, visual art, speakers, trainings. The more we do the more people we will attract. As more join, we will grow bigger, faster, and have a wider effect.

Action is now taking place all around the world. Join us. This is it! Extinction Rebellion.
UK Rebellion

From 11am Monday 15 April Parliament Square London

Keywords: Come to stay. Take two weeks off work. Bring a tent.


    The Action

    Non-Violent Direct Action

    Affinity Groups

    Police & Arrests

    Changes On The Day



    Additional Info

In the UK, thousands of rebels will peacefully block streets in Central London – where the UK’s politicians, media, people and money are concentrated until the government agrees to meet and seriously discuss the crisis with us. We invite people of whatever age or background to participate in this rebellion – blocking roads and standing up for our future. This is a community rebellion. Together we will stand together and support each other as we confront the government with our demand for decency and sanity.
The Action

At 11 am on Monday 15 April we are inviting you to gather in Parliament Square. We will take our message to the British Parliament and the Government asking for a meeting to seriously discuss our demands for emergency action. If there is no response we will set up camp in Parliament Square and several other key locations in Central London. Please bring a tent and food. This is a peaceful, alcohol & drug-free event.

If there is still no agreement to meet we will split into groups and sit down in numerous roads going into central London, effectively blocking road access into the centre of the city.

A programme will go live, welcoming all to join online. Londoners will be able to come down to the occupations and join the party.
What We’ll Create at Each Site

We’re currently planning and creating:

    Amazing visual art installations for each site, helping to Hold the Vision and generating curiosity – ‘you’ve got to go and see…’
    Music, theatre and other performances – starting with Big Public Performances at 6pm 15th April– not to be missed!
    Public Assemblies– modelling the Direct, Deliberative Democracies of Citizen’s Assemblies – a chance for us all to learn, share, deliberate…
    Tours and Actions spinning off from each site – bringing the Rebellion to other parts of London, guiding people to all our sites and to other key sites for learning and disruption.
    Themes – each Site will have a theme Holding the Vision of the 3 Demands and the world we’re creating.
    Some Days will also be themed – linking with particular partners, allies and movements. E.g. food on World Peasants Day e.g. fossil fuel free day when friends and allies from diverse movements will join us.

Sites will have:

    Learning Spaces – lots of interactive workshops, teach-outs, and inspirational speakers.
    Wellbeing Area– where we can support ourselves emotionally and physically.
    Kids’ Space– not a crèche – kids under 12 must be supervised.
    Activities Area: lots of games and activities – fun for all the family!. 
    Kitchens serving freshly prepared food
    Toilets and Washing facilities

Non-Violent Direct Action

We insist on nonviolence – the showing of respect to each other whatever our background and to the public and police. We are here to non-violently pressure the government to undertake action to protect the public and will not be distracted from this clear and singular aim.
Affinity Groups

An Affinity Group is a support group for doing actions. If you are not a member of an affinity group, please join a non-violent direct action (NVDA) training (information on the Extinction Rebellion Facebook Events page) where you can form or join one.

Before April 15th, affinity groups across regions of the UK will be assigned responsibility to block different areas of the city centre. They will make decisions on how best to do this themselves. They can decide to swarm – block streets until arrest looks possible and then move to a new location, or stay until they are arrested. Affinity groups will be asked which tactics they wish to adopt.
Police and Arrests

We will speak to the police to ensure that public safety is prioritised and to ensure any arrests are carried out in a civil and lawful way. XR will respond to such assurances by ensuring that police are treated with respect and everyone involved in the rebellion remains nonviolent in their actions and communications. Our opponent is the government not police officers.

If the authorities decide to move or arrest rebels we will sit peacefully on the ground – we will not assist or resist arrest.  We will then set up camp again at a pre-planned alternative site. If we are arrested and detained then, once released, we will return to blocking the streets. We will call on the general public to join us in this escalation of mass participation civil disobedience.
Changes on the day

Decisions on when and where to move locations will be made by Extinction Rebellion Action and Logistics teams on the basis of views from the people taking part and a strategic assessment of how to achieve our aims. The organisation of the camps will be based upon the organisation of small groups. One person from each group will meet together in various decision-making spaces so there is participation in the site organisation.

Those of us coming from outside London, where possible, will walk, cycle, train and bus to arrive by 9am on 15 April, to be ready to meet at 11am at Parliament Square.

However, if you would like to join the Earth March for their final leg, please join us in Richmond Park on the morning of Sunday 14. Stay tuned to the Facebook page for updates – more details to follow.


We are intending to occupy our street locations until the Government heed our cry of Rebellion. We need as many rebels as possible to camp out.

So come with your camping gear, and join the hundreds of Earth Marchers and cyclists who will have been camping on their way to London.   Bring tents, sleeping bags, ground-mats, headtorch, waterproofs, toilet roll & other camping essentials. Large bags of food and instruments are also very welcome. Please read through this guide:

Tents may get confiscated by police so free/cheap tents are available online, at festivals, car boot sales, charity shops, etc. Each Local Group is encouraged to bring as many tents as possible and let us know numbers.

Please note that taking part in the rebellion may result in arrest and all those taking part need to be aware of this. The most likely reason for arrests for sitting in the road is “obstruction of the highway”. This is a minor offense and if the authorities decide to take you to court you are most likely to get a conditional discharge or a small fine. For full information click here.

If you plan to camp, we strongly recommend arranging back-up accommodation. If you have friends and family in London, please ask them to host you, so we can all take breaks to ensure our Rebellion is sustainable.

If you can’t camp, please ask London-based friends if they can host you, or arrange accommodation yourself.  If you are unable to camp and don’t have contacts in London, we can help organise accommodation.

Click here to request/offer accommodation or any kind of indoor space in London for the rebellion Please complete this form by 31 March.

If you have a big tent/marquee/dome tent please get in touch.
Questions  and Answers on 15th April
What is the situation with Climate Change and Ecological Breakdown?

We are facing the extinction of millions of species including humans. Governments are allowing carbon pollution into the atmosphere faster than at any point in history. This is warming up the Arctic and the ice will be all melted in a matter of a few years, maybe this year. Once that happens there will be no cooling system for the earth, temperatures will soar and weather chaos will destroy crops. The result will be mass starvation and the breakdown of society. This process is one of many which are presently set to destroy our ability to eat and live as the global ecological crisis takes hold. Governments need to take emergency action now. It’s real. It’s happening.
What is Extinction Rebellion?
For thirty years conventional campaigning has failed to prevent a massive rise in carbon entering the atmosphere – an increase of over 60% and it is still going up. The rich and powerful want governments to delay taking action because they are making too much money from our present suicidal path which is going to destroy our livelihoods and kill our children. It is time to rebel. This is what Extinction Rebellion was set up to do – against governments all around the world. We demand the authorities tell the truth on the climate and ecological crisis, reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2025, reduce the use of natural resources to sustainable levels, and set up national citizens assembly to guide the government’s response to the crisis.
What is happening on the 15 April?

We are starting a rebellion against the British Government for criminal inactivity on the climate and ecological emergency. We are going to central London and will sit down and block streets each day and all day until the government agrees to meet with young people to seriously discuss our demands for emergency action. We are prepared to be arrested and detained. If we are released we will return to blocking the streets until the government responds. The rebellion will start at 11 am Monday 15 April in Parliament Square London. See Extinction Rebellion social media for daily gathering and assembly points after Monday.
Why are you rebelling?

Look at it this way. You go to the doctor and she tells you have cancer. You have a choice – do nothing and you will die – or radically change the way you live your life and have a chance of surviving. It the same with climate change – except with one big difference. If you don’t change your children will die as well – and all the human race – everyone will be gone forever. That’s what will happen if we don’t act. We must rebel until the government takes the emergency seriously.
Why arrests?

We don’t want to be arrested but are prepared to do so to highlight the total emergency we now face. Being arrested shows how strongly we feel. We are prepared to lose our liberty to wake up the public and the government. Previous great movements for change broke the law, and involved mass arrests and imprisonment. This is how we won our rights in the past. There can be no radical change without disruption and sacrifice. This is the only we can challenge entrenched political power. It’s just the way it is. We are over standing by and letting our world be destroyed. We are now doing what is most effective – mass civil disobedience.
You are just going to upset people. How will that create change?

Yes, we will upset people and yes this is how to create change. There are three main ways to create change. You can do conventional campaigning – send emails, give donations to NGOs, go on marches. We have tried that for 30 years and it has been a total failure – that is why we are in our dire state today. You can choose violence – that causes disruption and gets attention but destroys democracy and the relationships which we need to respond effectively to the crisis. The third option is mass participation in civil disobedience. We create mass disruption but through our respect to the authorities, we keep open the channels of communication needed to resolve the crisis. This is not a pretty process and is not meant to be. People do not change the habits of a lifetime through information and persuasion. They have to get upset and mad at you. And then some, enough change, because they know deep down you are right. As Gandhi said – first they ignore you, then they laugh at you then they fight you then you win. We are ready for the fight because we need to win.
What will you do if the government agrees to talk to you?

We specifically want three things – that the government and media come clean with the public and tell then the truth on how dire things really are, that they transform the economy and society to get us to net zero carbon emissions by 2025, and lastly they set up an independent national citizens assembly – of ordinary people to deliberate what specific policies are needed to reduce carbon emissions. We are democrats  – we believe the people of the country have a right to decide their future – not the politicians who have been corrupted by the influence of the rich and powerful. We will decide whether we are to live or die. That is why we are rebelling.
Will emergency vehicles be able to get through?

The authorities will be fully briefed on this action allowing opportunity for rerouting. Ambulances will have access to the blockade zones.
Okay, so how do I join?

Come down to Parliament Square 11 am 15 April. Come to stay. This is the most important thing in the world right now. So let’s do it. If you are unable or unwilling to participate in the action please consider supporting us via funding or volunteering on our back-office support teams.

All people who join the space will be required to take part in a short briefing which will explain Extinction Rebellion principles, rules, and practices. A written briefing will be handed to all participants.

April 20, 2019

Large fire activity continues in the Southern Area where 10 large fires are burning. Firefighters continue to work on the Black Bridge fire in Colorado. Twelve large fires were contained last week.

Weather: A passing weak cold front will bring a slight cool down to the warming temperatures across the West on Friday and more showers to the Northern Rockies. The high pressure ridge will weaken as it moves off into the Great Plains. Another low pressure system will drop south across northern California and the Great Basin on Saturday and Sunday. Pockets of critical fire weather conditions will be possible along the Mexican Border as the passing system creates breezy conditions with low humidities.  High pressure with warming temperatures will return to the West Monday and Tuesday as the low pressure system weakens and moves into the Plains. Another weak cold front will move into the Pacific Northwest and Northern Rockies on Wednesday and Thursday and will flatten the ridge. This will produce shower activity along the front (with lightning), and breezy conditions across the Great Basin. In Alaska, low pressure over the Interior will create scattered showers as it slowly drifts west toward the Bering Strait by Sunday. As this occurs, a drying trend will ensue as high pressure builds in from the Yukon Territory.

Antarctic Icecap Arctic Icecap

Arctic sea ice extent for March averaged 14.55 million square kilometers (5.62 million square miles), tying with 2011 for the seventh lowest extent in the 40-year satellite record. This is 880,000 square kilometers (340,000 square miles) below the 1981 to 2010 average and 260,000 square kilometers (100,400 square miles) above the lowest March average, which occurred in 2017.

The Bering Sea, which had been nearly ice free at the beginning of March, saw gains in extent through the middle of the month. However, those gains were short lived as extent dropped sharply during the last week of March. The Bering Sea typically reaches its maximum ice extent in late March or early April. This year, the maximum occurred in late January and was 34.5 percent below the 1981 to 2010 average maximum. These late-March sea ice extent losses in the Bering Sea accelerated the decline of total Arctic sea ice extent. By April 1, Arctic extent was at a record low for that date.

Other signs of spring are emerging. A substantial amount of ice retreated in the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Sea of Okhotsk, as well as in the Barents Sea. Late in the month, small areas of open water were observed in sea ice fields from the University of Bremen, particularly near the shores of the Laptev and Kara Seas, the Sea of Okhotsk, and off of northwestern Alaska.

The Nuclear Threat is VERY REAL!
  At Camp, I use a back-mounted 'pancake-styled' Geiger counter
with a 2" detector screen
, (heavy-lined circles on map). It's an
ONYZ NX-10 Geiger counter. I am near Tucson, AZ (not shown).

The "Santa Ana" easterly winds are starting.
This means a bump in my downwind CPM count!
We'll watch and see! Nano-sized, radioactive,
& other
nuke contaminants, are carried in the dust of
the desert floor region surrounding the

radioactive "waste" depository region, nearby Carlsbad,
New Mexico, the source. W.I.P.P. had a major release
around the time of Valentine's Day,
2014. Successful detection of dangerous radioactivity
is from noticing CPM up ticks of normally benign natural
 background radiation. A bump in
, sounds
the alarm! Radioactive Cs-137 is dangerous if ingested or
 inhaled. It is a short-lived radioactive nuke-fission waste
(lasting 300 yrs = 10 x 28 yr half-life) - a co-product
 with Pu-239 (
the deadliest poison known to humankind),
in the
fissioning process of Uranium-235 (that produces
 incredible heat used to convert liquid water to steam)! So,
when my
Geiger CPMs double or triple in number, I know
that many dozens
of other nuke waste crap like Pu-239
IS THERE! W.I.P.P. is in southeastern NM, near TX.

Today, I read 43 CPM (Counts Per Minute). "Mineral Lab"
produces the Background Radiation Map, in Prescott, AZ and
19 CPM from a Geiger counter with a smaller side-mounted
detector screen (light-lined circles), 2-3 times less sensitive, than
with the
ONYZ NX-10 back-mounted detector! > > More here

"Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of
Changing the World" by
Anand Giridharadas

Billionaires Are the Lethal Monkey on the Back of the
American Public
- Audio Interview* (30 mins) ~ Bob Scheer's Truthdig

"Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing the World"–to my mind, this is an inside view of a new ruling class. I don’t think I’m exaggerating. It’s a world that–you have all the watering holes, the TED conferences, the Aspen, everywhere else; you’ve been there, you’ve been there as a journalist for The New York Times for about 12, 15 years. You studied at some elite institutions, you worked at the Aspen Institute. And what we meet in this book are people who are into a great exercise of delusion, that they can make out like bandits and still be Robin Hood. Is that not the deal?
