SOUTH EAST UK

Welcome to XR Berkshire

You are invited to join us - Everyone, and every part of everyone, is welcome!

It is time to act. We use people power to demand urgent action from our Government.

Conventional approaches of voting, lobbying, petitions and protest have failed because powerful political and economic interests prevent change. Our strategy is therefore one of non-violent, disruptive civil disobedience – a rebellion.

Historical evidence shows that we only need the involvement of 3.5% of the population to force change – in the UK that’s about 2 million people.

Our meetings are the perfect first step to finding out more. Look for a Local Group near you and go to their social media for meeting dates or to send them an email. If you don't have a local group near you and are thinking of starting one, are interested in volunteering or would like to get in touch more generally, email [email protected]

LIVE UPDATE ❗️ REBELS BLOCKADE AMAZON FULFILMENT CENTRES UK-WIDE ON BLACK FRIDAY

In a mammoth decentralised action, rebels are making a stand against one of the world’s biggest companies, its exploitative business model and the system it represents by blockading 13 of Amazon's fulfilment centres the length and breadth of the UK.

Aiming to disrupt up to 50 per cent of Amazon's Black Friday deliveries, today over 300 rebels are calling out how people and planet, together, are being degraded by billionare-run corporations and the Governments that allow them to run rife - trapping us in a web of toxic consumerism, forcing workers into low pay and precarity, and destroying the natural world.

❄️ COME ON DOWN! It's cold out there and the rebels locked on & hanging from structures need your support! Come on down to your nearest action site in - bring some food, hot water/hot drinks, fleeces & blankets! List of sites at bottom of message.

❌ CANCEL YOUR AMAZON PRIME. Consider boycotting this exploitative company which dominates our transactions, if you feel you can afford to. Together, we can send them a message.

🎨 TAKE ACTION. Get out on the street to spread the word on Amazon's Crimes - graffiti or fly-post your local Amazon locker.

Well done everyone. Amazon is a really good place to target. The damage that they do.

Thank you for what you're doing! So impressed.

From 5am this morning 26th November 2021, #ExtinctionRebellion has blocked a total of 15 Amazon fulfilment centres in the UK, Germany and the Netherlands on Black Friday, the major global discount day. In the UK, people from all across the country are taking part, with 13 blockades in #Doncaster, #Darlington, #Newcastle, #Manchester, #Peterborough, #Derby, #Coventry, #Rugeley, #Dartford, #Bristol, #Tilbury, #MiltonKeynes and #Dunfermline. These sites account for just over 50% of Amazon deliveries in the UK.

A rebel explains:
“I am taking action because business as usual is killing us. Every year millions of people are encouraged to go out and buy environmentally damaging items and abide by the system of capitalism. Amazon is one of the many corporations which are accelerating the climate crisis and causing huge amounts of waste and greenhouse gas emissions, as well as providing awful working conditions and contracts for their employees. Our actions and consumption in the global north is impacting the lives of the global majority who are disproportionately already.”

#BlackFriday. An invented festival of gross consumerism, a buying frenzy of obscene proportions. #Amazon, and corporations like it, play a huge role in the destruction of our world. We cannot progress to a fair and just society while these companies continue to lie about their environmental impact and harm the people working for them. They are a part of the wider political and economic system designed to produce ever more growth at the expense of the natural world and of people everywhere.
