Propagation Clipping: Extinction Rebellion on Mobilizing Mass Dissent
Please enjoy this week's clip with Extinction Rebellion!
Extinction Rebellion has become the biggest civil disobedience campaign in modern British history.
In this podcast, Ayana speaks with three core members of the mass movement, a response to governmental inaction towards our climate and ecological crisis.
Since their establishment in May 2018, Extinction Rebellion has made headlines, demonstrated nonviolent civil disobedience involving thousands of civilians and have successfully encouraged the UK parliament to declare a climate and environment emergency.
We hear from Liam Geary Baulch, Jasmine Salter, and Linda Doyle as they uncover the importance of non-violent movements for climate momentum and the key to navigating public awareness, and criminal charges, while unpacking how regenerative culture and people’s assemblies create inclusive and democratic groups which work against ecofascism – towards a more democracy-focused political agenda.
Artist, activist and one of the key players in launching Extinction Rebellion, Liam Geary Baulch has been creating national actions with the movement since 2018 along with Stop Killing Londoners, one of Rising Up’s earlier campaigns on air pollution. Former architecture student, Jasmine Salter left school to become involved in climate activism. She is one of the Regenerative Culture co-ordinators who focuses on action well-being and has helped build support networks throughout Extinction Rebellion’s actions. Linda Doyle is a social psychology master’s graduate, and one of the coordinators of Extinction Rebellion’s UK national citizens’ assembly team.
