Wow, what an incredible couple of weeks it has been, with ups and downs and lots of emotions. But whatever happened, we remained all crew and fully expressed our love and rage, XR style!
This post is looking back to look forward. We celebrate Lambeth rebels and their incredible involvement in this rebellion and share a few updates on what’s next.
Lambeth rebels are awesome
Our amazing rebels, old and new, have been busy making this rebellion a success and got involved with: designing and participating in high profile actions; drumming; art blocking; banner making and holding; speaking; doing outreach, deescalation, legal observing, wellbeing, action and arrestee support; designing flyers; subvertising advertising spaces, performing songs, music and dancing; and much more!
There is something for everyone in XR!
Here is a selection of pics highlighting what we have been up to:
- Rest up: it’s been an intense couple of weeks and we all deserve some regen time to come back refreshed and ready to tackle the next challenges together. Check XR’s post-rebellion guide to coming down to earth after the rebellion.
- Celebrate: we are planning a big outdoors gathering later this month or in October. Until then, we’ll have a social in the park next week and organise some meetings. Make sure you join our Telegram chat so you can stay up-to-date with what’s coming up.
- Connect: the best way to connect with us is by joining our Telegram chat. Please make sure to say hello if you are a new rebel so we can make sure you have all the information you need! Follow us on socials: Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Check out our website for updates, events and resources. Not on socials? No worries, drop us an email so we can make sure to keep you updated!
- Plan ahead: COP26 is coming and we are also transitioning to a new way of organising within our local group (check our blog post for more info). We are also keen on organising our own actions and local outreach. For all of this, we need YOU! So join our group chat and meetings to find out how you can get involved. We welcome everyone, just bring some love and rage!
See you shortly, beautiful rebels!
