Extinction Rebellion April 21st-24th London – The Big One
The invitation is for everybody to Unite to Survive at ‘The Big One’ – a four day action from April 21st to 24th, where people from all groups and movements, not just XR, will gather throughout Westminster and at the Houses of Parliament. More than 70 organisations are supporting The Big One – including Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth and PCS Union.
The events are family friendly, accessible and welcoming, creative and engaging.
The streets will be transformed with People’s Pickets outside government departments and a diverse programme of of speakers, performers and workshops, with plenty of colour and culture. There will be art and music, talks from experts, places to listen and engage, and activities for the kids.
- Friday 21st – Unite to Survive. Westminster is filled with flags, banners and people.
- Saturday 22nd – Earth Day. An enormous, celebration & family-friendly march for biodiversity!
- Sunday 23rd – Running Out of Time! The Big One coexists with the London Marathon.
- Monday 24th – Choose Your Future. Parliament returns, the demand is delivered.
Come when you like, leave when you like, and stay for as long as you can.
Every single person makes us collectively more powerful, and makes our voices harder for the Government to ignore. Just imagine what thousands of us working together could do. We can make this the biggest climate protest ever held in the UK – something that is talked about for generations. We can bring about change. We can turn the tide. But first, we need to show up.
