Extinction Rebellion

Extinction Rebellion's (XR) Spring Rebellion kicked off in Sydney with an occupation of the busy intersection in front of Central Station on October 7.

A colourful and dramatic 'Bee-mergency' action was held in Sydney's Hyde Park on October 8 — Day 2 of Extinction Rebellion's (XR) Spring Rebellion.

Extinction Rebellion activists blockaded Princes Bridge in Melbourne’s CBD for several hours on September 14.

Unsurprisingly, a debate has broken out within the relatively new Extinction Rebellion movement on the role of the police in society and, more specifically, the tactics towards police at protests.

As the climate crisis worsens, the fires that are currently raging across New South Wales and Queenslandse are becoming the new normal.

Three activists from climate change direct action group Extinction Rebellion (XR) have been convicted after being arrested at protests earlier this year.

They are the first activists to stand trial as a group from charges related to April’s ten-day International Rebellion occupation.

Patrick Thelwell, Peter Scott and Samuel Elmore were charged with offences including obstructing a highway and obstructing police.

Young people around the world are taking seriously the warning from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that genuine action is urgently needed if we are to prevent catastrophic climate change.

That is why they have initiated a global Climate Strike on September 20, just days out from an emergency United Nations climate summit, to pressure governments into action.

One of the surreal aspects surrounding Extinction Rebellion Western Australia’s (XRWA) Day of Declaration protest at state parliament on August 15 was the frantic efforts of The West Australian to poison public perceptions of the rapidly expanding movement.

Extinction Rebellion activists continue to hold disruptive actions around Australia.

Extinction Rebellion WA (XRWA) brought proceedings at state parliament to a halt on August 15 — dubbed “Declaration Day” — as about 500 people rallied outside while a group of XRWA activists delivered a message to Legislative Assembly members.
