The Extinction Rebellion Podcast is back with a series of podlets (mini podcasts) from October 2019's International Rebellion in London.
On Monday the 7th, Extinction Rebellion managed to take 11 sites across the city. Our first podlet is a snapshot of that - reclaiming the streets.
Hear from the people who were there and part of a speech by Weyman Bennett, from Stand Up To Racism.
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 create and be led by the decision of a Citizens' Assembly on climate and ecological justice.
