What Some of the 100 London Hunger Strikers Had To Say | Extinction Rebellion

Extinction Rebellion   Published on Dec 21, 2019

“This is a way of just peacefully sitting here, informing the public without disrupting them,” Jane explained cheerfully while on day 7 of her hunger strike.

Humanity is at a crossroads as it faces an unprecedented Climate and Ecological Emergency. Here in the UK we joined in the Global Hunger Strike to demand our political leaders act now on the crises we are facing.

With our hunger strike we called for a change in business as usual, for any new Government to make the Climate & Ecological Emergency its highest and most fundamental responsibility.

Through our hunger strike we stood in humble solidarity as we learned 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 demanded a “Politics of Humility” from our politicians and we continue to demand that our Parliament show more humility towards its duties to its citizens rather than being entranced by power, influence and ideologies.
