    Rebel Daily 6: Climate CSI

    September 09, 2020 by Extinction Rebellion

    Hello rebels,

    Welcome to Rebel Daily #6!

    We hope you enjoyed catching up on the rest of the world’s action yesterday – today we’re back with the UK Rebellion.

    Tomorrow will be the last day of this wave of Rebellion, so if you’re dithering at all, come on down! Keep checking that London broadcast for the latest on what’s going on, and where.

    It’s been quite a journey so far. The plan is to go out on a note of connection and celebration before we all disperse; it may be a little while before we all meet like this again.

    Join the grand finale march on Thursday at 2pm, location tbc, which will conclude in some speeches and quiet reflection.

    But, it’s too soon for goodbyes just yet – there’s still a fair bit of rebelling to do. And, for this team, many stories of joyful and exciting action to cover!

    Animal Rebellion standing up for what’s right.

    Today’s issue is packed with action from days 7 & 8 of Rebellion. Read on to find out what Animal Rebellion has been up to in London and Manchester (spoiler: it involves the largest pig slaughterhouse in the UK and some creative lock-ons) and take a look at the remarkable voyage of Lightship Greta.

    Also, see the chalk-sprayed writing on the wall at BEIS, and catch up on the latest from Parliament Square and those incredible tree-borne rebels.

    Oh, and expect plenty of ‘Climate Crime Scene’ tape.
