Three Core Demands - Day Three of 12 Days of Crisis
A series of actions will take place in Brighton around Extinction Rebellion's three core demands:
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.
ACT NOW: Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025.
BEYOND POLITICS: Government must create and be led by the decisions of a citizens' assembly on climate and ecological justice.
