Protest Climate Change

Protest climate change now. It is almost a civic duty for anyone who cares about people & the planet. Join millions of determined people around the world.

Across the world, climate protest has been led by young people. Most notably Greta Thunberg, who decided to strike from school every Friday and protest outside the Swedish Parliament, calling for action on climate change.

We have now reached the stage where many of us believe protest must include civil disobedience. This response is in proportion to the increased threat now posed by global warming.

350.org

One of the first international climate groups leading the protest against climate change was 350.org The goal of 350.org was to keep carbon dioxide (CO2) to 350 parts per million — the safe concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere.

Extinction Rebellion

The largest global group to arise in more recent times has been Extinction Rebellion (XR) which was founded in 2018. Extinction Rebellion has by necessity adopted a more urgent approach to protest based on principles of civil disobedience.

Asked the question ‘why rebel’ the XR website gives the following answer “We are in the midst of a climate and ecological breakdown. We are facing an uncertain future – our world is in crisis and life itself is under threat. Now is not the time to ignore the issues; now is the time to act as if the truth is real. The science is clear. We are in the midst of a mass extinction of our own making and our governments are not doing enough to protect their citizens, our resources, our biodiversity, our planet, and our future.”

XR is encouraging people to sign up to their newsletter and to also protest climate change by joining XR in the nation in which they live.

Protest climate change today

The clock is ticking and time is running out. Please protest climate change where you live and take political action to help humanity avoid the pending climate catastrophe.

Elections are a crucial part of avoiding the most dire aspects of the climate catastrophe. Voting for change means supporting the candidate with the best climate policy … every time!
