NEWSFLASH: XR Global Hunger Strike – London | We Need You Tomorrow | Extinction Rebellion

Extinction Rebellion

Nov 18, 2019

“We need as many people as possible to come to the headquarters of all the political parties tomorrow to support us”, Larch Maxey called out as he stood in the cold night air outside the Labour Party HQ on November 18th.

On Nov 14th Extinction Rebellion UK hand delivered letters to each political party, requesting a filmed meeting with party leaders to ask for their support for the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill, the ‘#ThreeDemandsBill’. If they refuse the meeting, Extinction Rebellion UK activists promise to join hunger strikers around the world this coming Monday.

More than 400 people are taking part in the XR Global Hunger Strike if demands for meetings with their governments on the climate and ecological emergency are not met. The strike aims to highlight the vulnerability of our food supplies and force governments to enact Extinction Rebellion’s three demands.

Rebel hunger strikers worldwide are employing this last resort tactic after more than three decades of petitions, protests and campaigns have failed to secure the urgently needed responses to mitigate ecological and climate breakdown. By denying themselves their basic needs, the hunger strikers hope that their bodies will sound the alarm.
