Extinction Rebellion Scotland’s rebellion uses non-violent direct action to persuade governments to act justly on the climate emergency.
Our rebellion is founded on apolitical principles and values. XR Scotland’s actions are done in full public view and we take responsibility for them.
Our principles and values
Anyone who takes action in the name of Extinction Rebellion Scotland must follow our core principles and values.
The Rebel Agreement
All Rebels are asked to follow our basic Agreements. They provide a basis for trust so that both Rebels and the public know what we can expect from each other.
- We show respect to everyone – to each other, the general public and to the government and police.
- We engage in no violence, physical or verbal, and carry no weapons.
- We hold ourselves accountable for our actions and do not hide from the legal consequences.
- We bring no alcohol or illegal drugs.
- We take responsibility for ourselves; we are all crew.
We are here together until the Government acts on our three demands for necessary action on the climate and ecological emergency. This code aims to help us attract the many people we need to make this movement effective.
