Sgt. Rebel Says…join The Extinction Rebellion!
I made this character with stop-frame chalkboard animation to help raise awareness to the organisation the Extinction Rebellion who are trying to mobilise people from all over the world to demand their governments tell the truth about the severity of the situation and treat it as the emergency it is. We have to rise up and demand climate justice for all.
There is an international rebellion happening on April 15th. Be a part of it and let’s get the human race on a path towards a sustainable future…
This statement is from the Extinction Rebellion as to their intentions:
Civil Disobedience works when it’s, peaceful respectful, disruptive and undertaken on a mass scale. We don’t want to disrupt people, but our governments’ criminal negligence over 30 years leaves us no choice. If we had functioning democracies we wouldn’t need to. We’ve tried petitions, marches, letters, reports, papers, meetings, even direct actions, and emissions have continued to rise. Governments prioritise the short term interests of the economic elites, so to get their attention, we have to disrupt the economy. They have left no other option to get our three demands met, to save all that we love.
We need thousands of people to take to the streets, so spread the word. From the first night, we’ll start a wide diversity of cultural events – music, theatre, visual art, speakers, trainings. The more we do, the more people we will attract. As more join, we will grow bigger, faster, and have a wider effect.
Action is now taking place all around the world. Join us. This is it! Extinction Rebellion.
