Piccadilly Circus, London, United Kingdom

hosted by

Extinction Rebellion UK

Extinction Rebellion Youth will gather at 11am Hyde Park Corner and make their way towards Piccadilly Circus, which is geographically at the heart of our rebellion, and which will become a key meeting point during the rebellion – forming the hourglass ‘X’ of the Extinction Symbol.

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.

This page provides practical information for anyone interested in joining the rebellion in the UK:
