26 Nov – Day 9 UK | Global Hunger Strike For People and Planet | Extinction Rebellion

Extinction RebellionNov 26, 2019

“I’m sitting here in front of the Conservative Party headquarters… we’re a bit disappointed, very disappointed that nobody has come out to discuss our three demands, we want them to do that, we won’t go away until they do”, 76 year old Professor Peter Cole declared as he sheltered under his umbrella.

Humanity is at a crossroads with an unprecedented Climate and Ecological Emergency. Our country too is at a crossroads with a historic General Election. Here in the UK, we join in the Global Hunger Strike by demanding our political leaders act now on the crises we are facing. This is no ordinary General Election. This is the mother of all UK General Elections! This is the Climate Election!

With our hunger strike, we are calling for a change in business as usual, for any new Government to make the Climate & Ecological Emergency its highest and most fundamental responsibility . This is our opportunity to make clear to Parliament and Government that we will not stand by this flagrant dereliction of duty to the basic subsistence and survival needs of the people of this country.

Through our hunger strike we stand in humble solidarity as we learn to feel what the Global South has been facing for centuries. The risks that their communities families and children have been facing as a daily trauma are now becoming the risks to our communities families and children in Europe too.

Through our hunger strike we demand a “Politics of Humility” from our politicians, to demand our Parliament to show more humility towards its duties to its citizens rather than being entranced by power, influence and ideologies.
