Join the rebellion in Barcelona

Our world is in crisis. Life itself is under threat. Yet every crisis contains the possibility of transformation. Across the world, heralded by the young, people are waking up and coming together.

Join Us

In 2020 we demanded change. In 2021 we begin building the alternative.

We feel what you feel – a concern for the future. We worry about the future of our youth, families and friends, our communities, our work and how daily life is going to change, all the wildlife and nature that is no longer here. An old story is ending, a new one beginning.

Join the Rebellion in June 2021

We need numbers! Together we can bring CHANGE!

The goals of the action week are:

1) To make visible the presence and the three demands of XR with an escalation of the disruption, in this case in the scope of the Catalan territory.

2) Put the climate emergency back on the political and media agenda.

3) Demand that the Generalitat set up a Citizens’ Assembly for climate at regional level, and call for action to be taken on reducing emissions.

This is your rebellion.

How can you join?

Remember: You do not need to take a disruptive role or legal risks to be part of XR. We need you to create art, help with logistics, external communication, coordinate between working groups and with other local groups, take care of your fellow rebels, spread the word at events and on the streets, give workshops and talks, network with other movements, elaborate our strategy, give legal support, organize our finances, elaborate guides, welcome new rebels… and much more!!

What happens during a rebellion?

We have fun.

This a people movement. It’s about friendship, love and moments. We fight and we dance. We perform art. And we have fun doing it.

We disrupt.

We promote civil disobedience and rebellion because we think it is necessary- we are asking people to find their courage and to collectively do what is necessary to bring about change.

Why is a rebellion necessary?

Our world is in crisis. Life itself is under threat. Yet every crisis contains the possibility of transformation. We need the government of Barcelona, Catalonia and Spain to treat this crisis like a crisis.

History has shown that mass “above the ground” civil disobedience in full public view has been the most effective way to create change. This means economic disruption to shake the current political system and civil disruption to raise awareness. We are deeply sorry for any inconvenience that this causes, but it’s the only real option we have.

Together, our rebellion is the gift this world needs. We are XR and you are us. 

Who will be coming to the rebellion?
