Extinction Rebellion (or XR for short) is an international movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience in an attempt to halt mass extinction and minimise the risk of social collapse.
Our members, here in the King’s Lynn and West Norfolk area, support the aims and methods of Extinction Rebellion.
We are promoting mass “above the ground” civil disobedience – in full public view. This means economic disruption to shake the current political system and civil disruption to raise awareness. We are deeply sorry for any inconvenience that this causes.
We are about political change, not personal change (although we welcome both).
We are completely nonviolent, our actions are done in full public view, and we take responsibility for them. The Extinction Rebellion Action Consensus outlines how we work together on actions.
There are other groups across the country which represent different types of people. Some in our local group are part of these groups:
