COP26 REBELLION

The United Nations COP26 in Glasgow this November 2021 has the stated aim of โ€œuniting the world to tackle climate changeโ€. Yet at the previous 25 United Nations Climate Change Conferences since 1995, world leaders have repeatedly failed to deliver on this.

โ€œStop killing usโ€ is the message from XR Global South groups already suffering the most catastrophic consequences of climate change. We must also provide a voice for the world's millions of species and future generations who cannot speak for themselves.

XR will continue demanding immediate action to tackle the climate and ecological emergency in the run up to, during and beyond COP26.

Join us. Together we will tell these leaders to listen.

NOTE: Extinction Rebellion is a 100% non-violent civil disobedience movement aimed at nothing less than radical system change. Our rebellion is fueled by our love for humanity and for all life on earth.

What is the United Nation's COP26 Climate Summit?

350.org: https://350.org/

This November, world leaders from nearly 200 countries will meet in Glasgow, Scotland, for the 26th UN climate talks (COP26). It will be the most significant climate summit since the Paris Agreement was signed in 2015.

It will not magically solve the climate crisis, but pledges made there can take a critical step towards ending the fossil fuel era once and for all.

To understand what is at stake, watch and share this video that explains in simple terms what COP is all about.

COMMON DREAMS: Fossil Fuel Lobbyists Have Larger Presence at COP26 Than Any Single Country: Report

"That means the oil and gas industryโ€”the principal driver of the [climate] crisis that COP26 was ostensibly convened to tackleโ€”unofficially has a bigger delegation at the conference than Brazil, which has the largest national presence at COP26 with 479 representatives."

COMMON DREAMS: First Draft of COP26 Decision Text Slammed as 'Love Letter' to Fossil Fuel Industry

"The London-based Environmental Justice Foundation blasted the draft text as 'a love letter' to the fossil fuel industry, with CEO and founder Steve Trent warning in a statement that 'without a fossil fuel phase-out, 1.5ยฐC is well and truly dead, taking with it countless lives, whole cultures, and entire nations.'
