Ranger drives through Burning Man Blockade and violently suppresses climate protectors

The group blocked a main thoroughfare using a trailer, lock-ons, and banners with the words “Burners of the World, Unite!“Abolish Capitalism”, and “General Strike for Climate”.
   From the Seven Circles press release: William Livernois, a scientist with Scientist Rebellion. “Scientific discoveries have given us so many opportunities to change trajectory from the impending climate crisis but the momentum of fossil fuels has barely slowed even as we all begin to feel the effects. Please listen to our warnings and join us, we desperately need you to bring about the change that is possible,”

   A day after the action, Holley, Declare Emergency and XR NYC supporter told the Daily Rebellion, “I was part of a peaceful blockade protest demanding Burning Man festival ban private planes and single use plastic and return to their communal, anti capitalist roots. The Nevada Rangers drove through our barricade, shouting “I’ll take you all out” and endangering the lives of those chained down. Then the ranger pointed a gun at me, threw me to the ground and slammed my head against the road.”



In Solidarity, Will Regan

“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!”
