XR Scotland protestors in Scottish Parliament hanging up banner saying Climate Emergency


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 non-partisan 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.

  1. We show respect to everyone – to each other, the general public and to the government and police.
  2. We engage in no violence, physical or verbal, and carry no weapons.
  3. We hold ourselves accountable for our actions and do not hide from the legal consequences.
  4. We bring no alcohol or illegal drugs.
  5. We take responsibility for ourselves; we are all crew.

XR Scotland People’s Assembly Outcomes

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.

In April 2020, a small group in Edinburgh kicked off XR Scotland’s Strategy Process. Throughout summer 2020, over 70 people from across the movement met to offer their reflections on some key questions.

The outcomes document details the outcomes of all this hard work and how it can be taken forward to implementation.
