EXTINCTION REBELLION

Climate Change is real & its threat is growing every day

Who are Extinction Rebellion? They are an international movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience in an attempt to halt mass extinction and minimise the risk of social collapse.

They want the government to 1. TELL THE TRUTH about climate change, its damaging effects and how we are at the edge of societal and environmental collapse, 2. ACT NOW both governments and rebels, to show that we consider this a national emergency and 3. GO BEYOND POLITICS moving beyond the politics that have so far held us back, and into listening, dialogue and towards unity and action. XR want a citizens assembly.

1. TELL THE TRUTH

2. ACT NOW

2nd video, explaining how we need to ACT NOW, both as rebels and what we want from the government

3. GO BEYOND POLITICS

Going beyond politics really talks about how we want a citizens assembly, to bring the people away from the elite 1% and back into the hands of the people

What is a Citizens assembly?

The 3rd demand of XR is to GO BEYOND POLITICS and create a citizens assembly....but what is it?

A citizens assembly is a group of people from all walks of life and backgrounds, chosen at random like a jury, and is run by an independent organisation (separate even from extinction rebellion).

They would investigate the issues in depth, consider evidence presented to them, view the issue from all sides, question and discuss in small groups and make a unified decision about how to move forward.

This would be REAL DEMOCRACY! A new direction for the country, for the people, by the people. It would take the power from the hands of the elite 1% and put it back in the hands of the people where it belongs.

Universal Basic Income (UBI)

Universal basic income refers to regular cash payments made to the population with minimal or no requirements for receiving the money, in order to increase people's income

Basic Income is a big idea.

It has the potential to transform our society and provide security for everyone in the UK. But to get it right, we can't rely on academic papers and pilots alone.

That's why we're launching a national listening campaign to find out what people think about basic income and how it could work for us all.

Whether you're new to the idea or have heard about it before, we're inviting you to join the Basic Income Conversation.
