G7: How to get involved
The G7 leaders of the world’s richest ‘democratic’ nations are meeting in Cornwall on 11-13 June 2021, and we’re going to call out their empty words with the theme “Drowning in Promises”.
The G7 Summit will play a crucial role in later climate negotiations this year. We need to press the G7 nations, observers and guests for immediate change and keep that pressure on all the way to COP26.
We are calling on EVERYBODY who can, to rise up and take action: UK, worldwide and online!
How you can get involved
Rebels across the UK, and around the globe, are planning actions and reactions to the G7; to expose the truth behind the rhetoric, and puncture the UK government’s claim to be world leaders on tackling climate change.
In Scotland – contact your local actions link or email email@example.com if you wish to join local or national actions in Scotland

Online: Pass the Mic
‘Pass The Mic’ solidarity action with rebels from XR Global South groups is a chance for us to show we can rebel locally as part of a coherent global tapestry of actions.
The Global South Uprising will take place on June 9th – when those at the frontline of climate crimes, in Africa, Asia and Latin America, will draw attention to the hypocrisy of the countries and companies causing catastrophe in their lands.
These voices are easily drowned out by slicker, well-resourced media , which is why frontline activists are reaching out to all groups in the global north with internet, devices and social media reach to ‘Pass the Mic’.
We call on hundreds of media-savvy rebels around the world to join in this simple, practical act of solidarity, amplifying the actions and messages from the global South throughout the global XR reach.
