How Change Happens

Reflections on Rebellion – How People Power can Take the World By Storm The recent documentary Rebellion tells the story of how Extinction Rebellion went from a vision to a global movement. This blog post reflects on the theory of change behind both Extinction and Animal Rebellion and how we can build transformative people power.  What if I told you that one book held the answers to achieving positive social change? Would you believe me? When I first picked up a book that claimed to do just that, I was sceptical. I was at a stage of my life where, after becoming aware of the scale of injustice affecting animals, humans and our planet, I was increasingly desperate for any[…]

Plant-Based Universities campaigners drop banners on 3 London universities highlighting climate crisis

Students from 3 prestigious universities have unfurled large banners and let off non-toxic smoke flares at key university locations in order to confront their institutions on their cafes and restaurant’s impacts on the climate. The students say they plan to remain in place for one hour before peacefully dispersing. Sofia Carolina Fernandes Pontes, 25, student at London Metropolitan has said “It’s simple, universities have to act on the climate crisis and that begins with their menus. We know that industries like meat, fish, and dairy are driving climate collapse, deforestation, and ocean dead zones. This is all whilst we produce enough to feed ten billion people, yet have hundreds of millions starving all over the world because of our woefully[…]

Students nationwide launch 100% plant-based universities campaign for sustainability

Students at over twenty universities across the UK are demanding 100% plant-based on-campus catering by the 2023-24 academic year, to ensure a sustainable future. Animal Agriculture contributes 18-23% of all greenhouse gas emissions and is the leading cause of deforestation1, says the UN2. Groups of students at over twenty UK universities are calling for a transition to 100% plant-based on-campus catering in a campaign against University complicity in the climate crisis. This campaign is supported by the climate and animal justice movement Animal Rebellion, who have previously taken direct action demanding a transition to a just and sustainable plant-based food system, most notably against McDonald’s by shutting down all four of their UK distribution centers in 2021.

For many of us, this is obvious – the evidence is clear. However, why do so many organisations and people still fail to make the connection?

What Is Non-Violent Direct Action And How Will It Make Us Win?

The civil rights, votes for women, the independence of India, the end of the Apartheid… If you remove direct action arguably none of these would have happened or certainly not as fast. We can learn from their successes.
