In our first episode since April's International Rebellion, the Extinction Rebellion podcast discusses the future.

Extinction Rebellion has three demands.
1) Tell the Truth - Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change.
2) Act Now - Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025.
3) Beyond Politics - Government must crate and be led by the decision of a Citizens' Assembly on climate and ecological justice.
