It is clear that the political system has completely failed us – it shows a total lack of urgency and is backing policies based on wishful thinking.
Scientists made clear the implications of continued carbon emissions in 1990, CO2 in the atmosphere has since increased by 60%. You might say then, that those who govern us intend to kill our children and are presently engaged in a crime against humanity. In any democratic society, citizens have not just the right but also a duty to rebel against tyranny.
From the 31st October, citizens of this country will commit repeated acts of disruptive, non-violent civil disobedience. There will be mass arrests.
We demand the UK government; declare a state of emergency; take action to create a zero carbon economy by 2025; and create a national assembly of ordinary people to decide what our zero carbon future will look like.
We are willing to make personal sacrifices. We are prepared to be arrested and to go to prison. We will lead by example, to inspire similar actions around the world. This requires a global effort but we believe it must begin in the UK, where the industrial revolution began.
We will not be led quietly to annihilation by the elites and politicians. We will fight their genocidal behaviour with honour, resilience, and peace, in the spirit of all those who fought for our freedoms before us. We call on everyone, regardless of your political beliefs to join us in fighting for the survival of our nation and for the survival of life on earth.
