XR ACT will be supporting the School Strikes for Climate global day of action on Friday 25 September. Our 'Discobedience' dancers and singers will be at the corner of Northbourne Avenue and Alinga Street in the city between 4.30pm – 5.30pm to talk to pedestrians and encourage passing cars to honk in support of climate action and against a gas-led economic recovery.

A mock funeral procession and ‘die-in’ will highlight the climate crisis threats to all life on earth. This ‘mourning ceremony’ will be held in Kingston between 12.30pm - 2.30pm on October 3. We will be calling on our governments to choose life and take immediate action on the climate crisis. Gas is a dangerous fossil fuel that will turbocharge the climate crisis and we demand zero emissions by 2025.

Learn more about XR ACT on 29 September in Turner between 7:30pm – 9:00pm. Please join us for this talk about the climate and ecological crisis and what you can do about it. Come and talk about the goals of XR and how you can get involved. We will briefly acknowledge the latest climate science and offer solutions through the study of social movements. We will also discuss how Extinction Rebellion is organised, our principles and values and our guiding philosophy. Everyone is welcome and there will be time to ask questions and discuss afterwards. Entry is free. Bookings are essential so we can ensure social distancing. More details can be found here.

Canberra’s peak hour car, foot, tram and bike traffic is in for a treat this Friday afternoon as Extinction Rebellion ACT takes to the streets to get down with climate action and to tell our governmen

Extinction Rebellion (XR) is a do-it-together movement. All our design and artwork can be used non-commercially for the purpose of planet saving. This does not mean creating merchandise for fundraising or sending XR a percentage of your sales. We do not endorse or create any merchandise and we will pursue and prosecute anyone who does. The Extinction Symbol was designed in 2011 by street artist ESP, who loans XR usage on the same basis:

Extinction Rebellion ACT acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land on which Canberra is situated, the Ngunnawal and Ngambri people. We wish to recognise and respect their continuing connection to the land and water, and the contribution they make to the life of this city and this region. Their sovereignty was never ceded. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging. We would also like to acknowledge other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who may visit this area.
