Operation BIG BIRD: an XR Dance Party in Westminster


06 December 2019
10:30 - 13:30


Parliament Square, London, United Kingdom



hosted by

Extinction Rebellion London

You know it. We know it. But, do they?

It’s time to join the #ElectionRebellion and bring the truth to the politicians’ doorstep on 6th December.

Our giant, 4m tall ostrich – Big Bird – has had his head in the sand for too long.

We will march with him through Westminster, stopping at each of the main party’s HQs, bringing colour, joy, music, dance and humour with us.

On Friday 6th, come rain or shine, we bring a message to the politicians and the people that they won’t forget in a hurry:
Any political party that does not prioritise the climate and ecological emergency has not earned the right to govern this country.

We demand that politicians get their heads out of the sand and sign our Three Demands Bill.


WHEN: Friday 6th December, 10:30

WHERE: Come to Parliament Square to meet Big Bird and get warmed up!

DRESS CODE: We want to make an impression! We will dress smart – satirising lazy depictions of rebels thus far – and bright – remembering our creativity and colourful spirit.
Think brightly coloured suits / colourful clothes with a smart blazer etc.
