Join the Extinction Rebellion Podcast for the #ElectionRebellion, pushing the Climate & Ecological Emergency to the top of the political agenda.

Hear about the Three Demands Bill, the hunger strikers, climate hustings, and our 12 days of crisis, including a severe weather warning from the future.

Featuring interviews with XR Sheffield, XR Hull and a special appearance from Emma Thompson.

Extinction Rebellion has three demands.

1) Tell the Truth - Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change.

2) Act Now - Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025.

3) Beyond Politics - Government must create and be led by the decision of a Citizens' Assembly on climate and ecological justice.

This is the Writers’ Rebellion: Are You Here For This?

The Extinction Rebellion Podcast is back to normal length; with an episode perfect to kick back to during the post rebellion regenerative period. It features a feast of stories and poems from the Writers' Marathon in Trafalgar Square, London (on the 11th of October, 2019).

From Salena Goddens’ call to action, to Philip Hoare’s face-to-face encounter with a whale, Owen Sheers' poem to his daughter in the womb, to Natasha Walter and Tom Bollough’s recollections of being arrested for Extinction Rebellion.

Oh, and there is also an interview with Booker Prize co-winner, and author of "The Handmaid's Tale" and "The Testaments", Margaret Atwood.

Other writers featured in this episode include: Ali Smith, Naomi Alderman, Anjali Joseph, Irenosen Okojie, Robert Macfarlane, Romesh Gunesekera, Simon Schama, and comperes Simon McBurney and AL Kennedy.

Extinction Rebellion have always had a controversial relationship with the police.
During the April Rebellion, there were chants of "we love you" and a practice of liaising with the police before actions.
During the October rebellion, this relationship became much more conflictual.
This episode tracks those changes and is a prelude to a more in depth podcast, coming this winter.

Speakers include Sian Berry (Co-Leader of the Green Party), George Monbiot (The Guardian Columnist), Rupert Read (Extinction Rebellion Spokesperson), XR lawyers, and XR disabled rebels.

700 health professionals have joined Doctors for Extinction Rebellion.

Why are these pillars of the community willing to take part in civil disobedience, risk arrest, and, for some, glue themselves to government departments?

Because, as the GPs in this episode of the Extinction Rebellion Podcast make clear, the climate and ecological emergency is also an impending public health catastrophe.

At the heart of October 2019's International Rebellion in London, as with any other rebellion, are Extinction Rebellion's (XR) Youth.

Listen to the day they marched to the Department of Education and demanded a curriculum that meets the unique challenges of this Planetary Emergency.

We then speak to Ruth Shallcross, from XR educators, about why she thinks the curriculum needs changing and what those changes might look like.

There is strong language in this episode.

Extinction Rebellion’s (XR) first demand is that the government and media ‘tell the truth’ about the climate and ecological emergency.

In pursuit of this, on Friday the 11th of October 2019, hundreds of XR activists descended on the BBC’s HQ at Broadcasting House in London.

In this episode, the Extinction Rebellion Podcast explores the motives of those activists and why pressure is growing on the BBC and all broadcasters and media outlets to radically improve their coverage of what the IPCC declares is an emergency.

It also features testimony from an ex BBC Radio 4 Producer, now XR activist.

One of 12 sites that was briefly held during the International Rebellion in London, Faith Bridge (formerly known as Lambeth Bridge) was co-ordinated by a multi-faith group of spiritual leaders, organisations, and citizens.

In this episode, we speak to those people; featuring a vicar from Leeds, a Pure Land Buddhist Priest, and representatives from Christian Climate Action, XR Muslims, XR Jews, XR Buddhists, and Earth Wisdom Tenders.

On Friday the 11th October 2019, from 5-9pm in Trafalgar Square (London), Extinction Rebellion will be launching Writers Rebel, an initiative to encourage writers to address the climate emergency in their work.

In this episode we first speak to Writers Rebel organisers and novelists, James Miller (who wrote Lost Boys and Sunshine State), Monique Roffrey (whose novel Archipelago won the OCM Bocas Award for Caribbean Literature), and Chloe Aridjis, (who wrote Book of Clouds, was guest curator at Tate Liverpool, and has been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship).

We then speak to feminist, academic and psychologist Susie Orbach, discussing what kind of stories suit our troubled times, and Pultizer Prize finalist Jonathan Franzen, around the fallout from his recent New Yorker piece.

On Friday, readers will include Ali Smith, Romesh Gunesekera, Robert Macfarlane, Naomi Alderman, Polly Stenhem, Simon Schama, A.L. Kennedy, Paul Farley, and Daljit Nagra.

The Extinction Rebellion Podcast is back with a series of podlets (mini podcasts) from October 2019's International Rebellion in London.

On Monday the 7th, Extinction Rebellion managed to take 11 sites across the city. Our first podlet is a snapshot of that - reclaiming the streets.

Hear from the people who were there and part of a speech by Weyman Bennett, from Stand Up To Racism.
