The Extinction Rebellion Podcast is back with a special, soaking up the atmosphere from 2019’s Glastonbury Festival.
We start with Sir David Attenborough’s Sunday afternoon appearance on the pyramid stage, praising the festival for going plastic free!
Then, we move to Thursday afternoon, where the XR procession ended with a mass assembly of the Extinction symbol.
From the park stage, you can hear rapper Dizraeli and the Kichwa Amazonian Shaman, activist and Wisdom Keeper, Kurukundi.
Then, after his appearance at the speakers forum, we spoke to political economist, writer, and coordinator of the Rapid Transition Alliance, Andrew Simms.
Finally you can hear journalist Sue Wheat’s interview with Glastonbury founder, Michael Eavis.
You can view Extinction Rebellion’s three demands here.
Listen to our fourth Extinction Rebellion podcast, ‘Looking Forwards’, featuring an interview with the architect of the 2015 Paris Agreement, Christiana Figueres, here.
With thanks to Sue Wheat.
