Extinction Rebellion South Australia

We are a local group of Extinction Rebellion (XR), which is a decentralised, politically non-partisan movement that uses non-violent direct action and civil disobedience to persuade governments to act justly on the climate and ecological emergency.


We must rise up to ensure action is taken on the climate and ecological emergency, avoiding the next mass extinction event. Step into courage and join with us.
We are in the middle of a climate and ecological crisis. Our course is set for mass species extinction, and societal collapse. Our future looks bleak and our children are not safe.Change to avert the worst of the disaster is still technically and economically possible. It involves envisioning and building a world which is ecologically and socially just. This is an emergency situation – action is urgent. Our Government isn’t acting in accordance with what science and history tells us. Therefore our Government is criminally negligent.We have a moral duty to rebel, whatever our politics. History shows us that peaceful civil disobedience is an effective way to bring about change.Our lives have meaning when we follow our conscience and fight to protect what we love. We ask others who feel the same way to join our peaceful Rebellion.

Our Demands
01 Tell the truth: Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change.
02 Act Now: Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025.
03 Beyond Politics: Government must create and be led by the decisions of a Citizens’ Assembly on climate and ecological justice.

We are you! You are welcome to join us and participate, you don’t need our permission, as long as you agree to follow the core principles and values of Extinction Rebellion.
1 WE HAVE A SHARED VISION OF CHANGE: Creating a world that is fit for generations to come.
2 WE SET OUR MISSION ON WHAT IS NECESSARY: Mobilising 3.5% of the population to achieve system change – using ideas such as momentum-driven organising to achieve this.
3 WE NEED A REGENERATIVE CULTURE: Creating a culture which is healthy, resilient and adaptable.
4 WE OPENLY CHALLENGE OURSELVES AND THIS TOXIC SYSTEM: Leaving our comfort zones to act for change.
5 WE VALUE REFLECTING AND LEARNING: Following a cycle of action, reflection, learning, and planning for more action. Learning from other movements and contacts as well as our own experiences.
6 WE WELCOME EVERYONE AND EVERY PART OF EVERYONE: Working actively to create safer and more accessible space.
7 WE ACTIVELY MITIGATE FOR POWER: Breaking down hierarchies of power for more equitable participation.
8 WE AVOID BLAMING AND SHAMING: We live in a toxic system, but no one individual is to blame.
9 WE ARE A NON-VIOLENT NETWORK: Using non-violent strategy and tactics as the most effective way to bring about change.
10 WE ARE BASED ON AUTONOMY AND DECENTRALISATION: We collectively create the structures we need to challenge power. Anyone who follows these core principles and values can take action in the name of Extinction Rebellion!
