Extinction Rebellion Scotland is part of an international movement that uses Non-Violent Direct Action (NVDA) to demand action on the global climate and ecological emergency.
OUR 3 DEMANDS
Issued by Extinction Rebellion Scotland as a Declaration of Rebellion to the Scottish Parliament and Scottish Government on 24th November 2018.
1. Tell the Truth
That the Scottish Government tell the truth about the climate and wider ecological emergency, acknowledge and reverse any policies that help drive the climate crisis, and commit to enabling a rapid and just transition to a sustainable and fair society.
2. Net Zero 2025
That the Scottish Government enact legally binding policy measures to reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2025, including by replacing a system based on accelerating consumption with one based on ensuring the wellbeing of all.
3. Climate Citizens’ Assembly
The creation of a Scottish Climate Citizens’ Assembly to oversee the changes, as part of creating a democracy fit for purpose and a society that cares for all.
