Extinction Rebellion is an international apolitical network using non-violent direct action to persuade governments to act on the Climate and Ecological Emergency.
We have three demands in the UK:
1: Tell the truth
Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change.
2: Act Now
Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025.
3: Beyond Politics
Government must create and be led by the decisions of a Citizens’ Assembly on climate and ecological justice.

Chalk Streams in Crisis
We have recently been informed that a House of Commons debate on theChalk Streams in Crisis dossier has been scheduled for next Monday, 22nd July. For this to have an impact we need to ensure that local MP’s are aware of the issues and that they attend and engage with this debate. We have contacted all the MP’s with Chilterns chalk streams in their constituency.
How can you help? Contacting your MP about this issue as soon as you’re able as the time scale is very tight
You can find out who your MP is and how to contact them here. There is a standard letter on our website for you to download .
Spread the word – please help to raise the profile of the Chalk Streams in Crisis. Look out for our tweets on this @Chilternstreams. Across the Chilterns we are suffering a drought, yet hardly anyone is talking about it. Please help us to change that.

There Is No Planet B!
We are facing an unprecedented global emergency. Life on Earth is in crisis: scientists agree we have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown, and we are in the midst of a mass extinction of our own making.
