Extinction Rebellion UK
Extinction Rebellion’s 1st demand is that the “Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change”. With the BBC HQ just up the road and in the epicentre of our planet-damaging consumerism, we will tell the truth about the severity of the climate and ecological emergency, as the Government and media are failing to. Through dancing to DJs, discussions, circus and art, we will create a sea in the centre of the junction of Oxford Street and Regent Street as we rise like the oceans.
This is one of the locations that will be blocked during International Rebellion and International Rebellion UK – Shut Down London! beginning 15th April.

From Monday 15 April, Extinction Rebellion is taking action on the streets of cities all over the world – from Auckland to Accra, Mexico City to Vancouver – over multiple days to demand that governments take necessary action on the global Climate and Ecological Emergency.
We will peacefully block traffic around the clock. This will be a full-scale festival of creative resistance, with people’s assemblies, art actions, stage performances, talks, workshops, food and family spaces.
