Extinction Rebellion

Thousands of climate activists are taking direct, disruptive action across Australia as part of Extinction Rebellion's international week of rebellion.

The following open letter, signed by more than 250 academics at Australian universities, was released on September 20.

The science has long been in on the climate emergency, yet despite this governments have signed off on Adani’s coalmine in Central Queensland, with five or six more set to follow if it goes ahead.

This immediate threat has led Queensland to become a flashpoint for climate activism in recent months. 

Local community garden organiser and waste educator Amy Warne explains why she is part of Extinction Rebellion.

The day after the May 18 federal election, as people were reeling from the unexpected result and taking time to regroup, the initiators of Extinction Rebellion WA hosted a picnic at the Hilton Harvest Community Gardens near Fremantle. One hundred and fifty people attended and, while there was some licking of post-election wounds, what dominated was a sense of hope and determination.
