F2: Support for the eXtinction Rebellion campaign
Young Greens support the ongoing eXtinction Rebellion programme of non-violent direct action and civil disobedience in demanding immediate action on the threat of human-made climate change and ecological destruction.
Young Greens believe that the interlinked processes of human-made climate change
and ecological destruction pose the largest existential threats to our global
ecosystem and society. We also recognise that current national and international
efforts will be insufficient in tackling these problems and that our government
must be pressured into taking radical action.
We, therefore, state our unequivocal support for the current eXtinction
Rebellion (XR) campaign of mass civil disobedience through means of non-violent
direct action (NDVA), which demands legally-binding policies to reduce net UK
carbon emissions to zero by 2025 and greater international co-operation on a
sustainable global economy.
