Extinction Rebellion Tests The Limits Of Public Protest

SNIPPET:

Here is its stated agenda:

֍ We have a shared vision of change — creating a world that is fit for generations to come.
֍ We set our mission on what is necessary — mobilizing 3.5% of the population to achieve system change — using ideas such as “momentum-driven organizing” to achieve this.
֍ We need a regenerative culture — creating a culture which is healthy, resilient and adaptable.
֍ We openly challenge ourselves and this toxic system — leaving our comfort zones to take action for change.
֍ We value reflecting and learning — following a cycle of action, reflection, learning, and planning for more action.
֍ Learning from other movements and contexts as well as our own experiences.
֍ We welcome everyone and every part of everyone — working actively to create safer and more accessible spacesWe actively mitigate for power — breaking down hierarchies of power for more equitable participation.
֍ We avoid blaming and shaming — we live in a toxic system, but no one individual is to blame.
֍ We are a non-violent network — using non-violent strategy and tactics as the most effective way to bring about change.
֍ We are based on autonomy and decentralization — 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 RisingUp!

Well we see how this works out... climate change is now up there as a regular, standard item in all the news and current affairs programmes in the UK now...

but there is an orchestrated campaign in the tabloid press to label XR extremeists, hippies, unemployed, snowflakes... plays into standard UK narratives about who are the 'bad guys' with an election surely coming soon

"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win” Gandhi

If XR has advanced the marker from being ignored to a smear campaign they have jumped step 2 and reached step 3 in a 4 step process. Not bad for an organization so young.

True.

(if quoting Gandhi, there's an alternate history story by Harry turtledove, 'the last article' in which Gandhi faces off against the 3rd Reich you should read)

Agelbert > egriff5514
👍 Thank you for bringing this up. I looked it up and am posting the salient points below.

Though picturing a grim outcome, it is quite applicable to the XR struggle to save humanity from the 🦕😈🦖 Hydrocarbon Hellspawn crazies, who have no moral compass whatsoever.

"The Last Article" (1988), is an alternate history short story by Harry Turtledove. The story describes a Nazi invasion of India and the reaction of the Germans to the nonviolent resistance and pacifism of Mohandas Gandhi and his followers.

Gandhi assumes a moral equivalence between the Nazi and British imperialists, naively dismissing reports otherwise; the story makes clear that this is a lethal mistake stemming from Gandhi's reluctance to entertain the idea that his moral and ethical assumptions are not shared in common among all  human groups. Loyalty is explored as a powerful but amoral force.

The Last Article

It is my view that XR's non-violent resistance can be successful IF, and only IF, the movement succeeds in bankrupting the Hydrocarbon Hellspawn. The profits the polluters make are used to retain tyrannical power through the purchase of politicians. If there is no money to purchase politicians, a viable biosphere centered approach to governing is possible. 🎍

Otherwise, the polluters will cling to their power and resort to soul crushing ☠️ murder and 🏴‍ mayhem, even as the biosphere degrades further.

When people are dying in large numbers from Catastrophic Climate Change and 🦕😈🦖 Polluter backed Government tyranny, only a miracle can prevent the masses from rising up violently.

When you are challenging a power structure that eschews ALL ETHICAL CONSIDERATIONS, the only non-violent action that works is to hit them in the wallet.

If the polluters do not see the wisdom of saying goodbye to their profit over planet modus operandi, the following is inevitable:


 The 🦕🦖 Hydrocarbon 👹 Hellspawn Fossil Fuelers DID THE Clean Energy  Inventions suppressing, Climate Trashing, human health depleting CRIME, but since they have ALWAYS BEEN liars and conscience free crooks 🦀, they are trying to AVOID   DOING THE TIME or   PAYING THE FINE! Don't let them get away with it! Pass it on!   
Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart. Ps. 97:11
