XRACT - in the time of Covid 19



Our first demand is to #TellTheTruth.


The truth right now: the coronavirus (Covid-19) is here, it’s dangerous, and mass public gatherings increase the risks on the most vulnerable people in our society. That is why we are cancelling all planned events until further notice (or proceeding virtually).


Rest assured, we are working on creative alternatives during this crisis. In particular we will aim to have meetings and trainings online. Keep an eye out on this website or our facebook page for updates.


As the coronavirus crisis rapidly progresses, let’s reflect on what’s coming if we don’t radically change the way society works. This is what a last-minute global response to an existential crisis looks like, things are likely to get far worse. Mayhem in airports, flights cancelled, people stranded, sick people abandoned on ships, supermarkets empty, no toilet paper, no hygiene products, health systems overwhelmed - this is only the beginning. But this is our chance to show how humanity can support each other at the time of crisis.


Our excellent global regen team has developed a useful resource in response to Covid-19: https://docs.google.com/…/1l18xoacLVw1rWnxiVS-q6_xzcPp…/edit


Let’s listen to the scientists. Remember what’s at stake. Act out of love, not fear. Look after the most vulnerable around us. Take care of each other until this virus abates.


Then rebel.

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.
