Dying for climate action

This is the companion article to Extinction Rebellion Hastings and St Leonards. Mark Hutchinson from Shendao Silent Films attended the three die-ins on Saturday (18 May) organised by Extinction Rebellion (XR) – and has generously shared his photos of the event.

WHY DO WE NEED TO REBEL?

We will not be led quietly to extinction by the elites and politicians. Conventional campaigning has failed. Carbon emissions have increased by 60% since scientists first warned of ecological collapse in 1990.

We will work together with love, compassion, honour, resilience and peace, using non-violent civil disobedience, in the spirit of all those who fought for our freedoms before us.

We call on every one of you, regardless of your political beliefs, to join us in fighting for the survival of life on earth.
