Quote from Peter, arrested on the scene. “My name is Peter, I’m 33 years old, I’m being arrested for allegedly breaking a section 12 order.

We were given a section 12 order on a separate street. And that’s the only street it should apply to. There is a specific location needed to be given when the order is in place. We then entered the road at a separate location, a different road, and I was arrested using the previous order. This is an illegal arrest. I’ve done nothing wrong. The police are using intentionally vague language to arrest protesters (like me).”

This is part of an ongoing campaign by Just Stop Oil to have marches of protesters moving through the streets at multiple locations across the UK. The protests have been successful at keeping the pressure on the establishment to answer to the climate crisis. A typical day can have 4-5 teams of 10 or so marchers making their way through the streets with banners and orange vests. The risks continue to mount as the police crack down, but the protesters don’t seem to be deterred, and new JSO supporters join their ranks daily.

September 28th, 6:30-7:30, EST

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.

“What are our responsibilities at this time? Because of the fossil fuel industry, we are facing horrors of a magnitude never before experienced in our existence. Our government continues to lead us to the edge of no return. We must stand up and defend ourselves. No one else is going to do it. It must be us, if we want to live.
Our methods must be disruptive, and they must be nonviolent. Our actions are evidence-based, credible, and we have a plan. The only thing missing at this point in time is YOU!”
