This Wednesday, July 5, 400 non-violent activists entered the construction site of a future Engie Gas Power Plant, during the early evening hours.

This action is necessary to prevent overproduction of oil on a planet that is far past its limits already. The action, carried out by Code Rouge-Rood, is a coalition of 25+ groups from students, Extinction Rebellion, scientists, and other frontline climate activists.

This action was necessary not only because of the dire straights of the planet, but the political gridlock around social and climate justice. The activists are merely staking their claim to a right to dignity, and a habitable planet.
They were soon surrounded by helicopters and police, but their numbers were too great to be easily removed. Instead, police kept a distance and watched. This action draws the publics attention to the fact that the government is already overlimit on emissions with the current power plants in place - if built, this plant would make the problem much greater. The existence of the power plant project undermines the Belgian populations goodwill and sacrifices they’ve already made.

Code Rouge-Rood states that clean and renewable energy at low cost can only be achieved by regaining control over production from the hands of giants like Engie. They seek to socialize the energy sector, to give their population control over their future and how their money is spent.
This was day 1 of a 5 day planned action.


The Pink Boat Reigns Supreme Over Fossil Criminals at the Ffos y Fran mine

The mine is to be shut down.

It was only two weeks ago that the Pink Boat of Extinction Rebellion sailed back into action - to confront the Ffos-y-Fran coal mine in Wales. After a few tense days of actions, which included occupations, temporary blockades, and marches, the point had been made loud and clear.
The UK government was either on the side of the people, or the coal mine which had been operating illegally for a number of months. This week saw what looks like the conclusion of this case - as according to the BBC, “An enforcement notice giving Ffos-y-Fran opencast mine in Merthyr Tydfil 28 days to stop extracting coal came into effect on Tuesday.”

Four civil disobedience activists (including one rebel) blocked the road to the Burning Man festival. It generated hundreds of media stories.

Another rebel glued his feet to the floor of Arthur Ashe stadium and stopped a US Open semi-final game for 49 minutes. It generated thousands of media hits worldwide, inserted the topic of climate emergency where it is least seen - the sports pages.

Would you like to be a part of this new wave of climate actions, where a small number of brave people can make a big impact?

Come learn from these two rebels. It's not hard. It just needs a bit of pluck, a bit of creativity, and a straightforward message.
