Location Details
Oakland's Lake Merritt by Athol Plaza
Join Extinction Rebellion, an international direct action movement, on Saturday, February 16, 2019 at 3:30 pm as we gather at Oakland's Lake Merritt by Athol Plaza for an opening ceremony and solidarity gathering!

In the spirit of grief, love, and compassion, we will gather to honor Earth and to affirm our commitment to rebel nonviolently against government inaction on climate change. The gathering is the first step in a series of XR events this spring as we build up to International Rebellion Week in April.

This event will include a climate ribbon ceremony, a silent march, art & music and amazing speakers – early commitments from Joanna Macy and Pennie Opal Plant. Please join us and join the rebellion!

A CANDLE: Please bring A CANDLE, one for each person coming. It may be windy, so we suggest a candle in a glass or a taper candle with an improvised shield - we trust your ingenuity.
GENERAL: This is an outdoor event, so layers, an umbrella and comfortable shoes, water, and your own snacks. We gather rain and shine.
KIDS: This is a kid-friendly event, though there will not be specific programming for children.
ART: We have created some inspiring art for this event. We encourage everyone to create your own additional signs, banners, puppets, etc - we love your style!
