London Borough of Camden
Extinction Rebellion Camden
Members of Extinction Rebellion (XR) – like everyone else – live in a society with prejudices and biases – about race, class, disability, our understanding of the world and many more. However, in order to be a movement to fight climate change and environmental destruction without excluding people and to make sure we work towards a just transition globally we first need to work on ourselves.
To make sure everything we do takes oppression of certain groups and privileges for others into account, we at Camden XR are considering adopting an additional 4th demand – similar to XR US (https://extinctionrebellion.us/demands).
On Saturday the 7th of March we want to spend a day to discuss how to move forward on the way for XR Camden to adopt a 4th demand based on earlier discussions: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1_tOCGP0QsuUd0RXulqBgcUcp9Y_T6UtQvfVxah7sueo/edit
The exact location and programme will be published in the coming days. We are trying for an accessible meeting space and creating zoom access for at least some of the discussions. We have also reached out to XR families to see what the opportunities of providing child care are.
