Which is more scary?
Stepping out and blocking a road OR talking to someone about Extinction Rebellion
We need more people to start the journey you’re already on – learning, involvement and action.
The “Heading for Extinction” talk is designed exactly for this.
Probably the most effective way for people to hear about it, is for us to tell our friends, colleagues, acquaintances about it.
And, for many of us this can be as challenging as blocking a road (or more!).
And it may be as effective (or more!).
Are YOU up for the challenge?
Simply copy and paste the email text below into an email to people you know
(perhaps whether or not you think they would be sympathetic)
And as it’s online, anyone in the UK can join. In fact anyone around the world! (with consideration to the time difference).

There is a groundswell of climate issue pressure building for the radical changes and strategies we need the Government to put into action. Dabbling round the edges of climate change is beyond inadequate. Only heightened awareness, groundswell mobilisation across the country and forward planned actions and decisions can make a difference re what is inevitable if we stay passive.
