Mr. Broccoli the Animal Rebellion Movement Aim and Objectives
Extinction Rebellion (abbreviated as XR) is a nonviolent global environmental movement with the stated aim of using civil disobedience to compel government action to avoid tipping points in the climate system, biodiversity loss, and the risk of social and ecological collapse.
Extinction Rebellion was established in the United Kingdom in May 2018 with about one hundred academics signing a call to action in support in October 2018, and launched at the end of October by Roger Hal lam and Gail Brad brook, and other activists from the campaign group Rising Up!. In November 2018, five bridges across the River Thames in London were blockaded. In April 2019, Extinction Rebellion occupied five prominent sites in central London: Piccadilly Circus, Oxford Circus, Marble Arch, Waterloo Bridge, and the area around Parliament Square.
Hello Piers… you forgot about the peas.
The police cracked down chard on us, but both Dr Broccoli and Mr Pea have done their thyme and are now available for interview. Give us a kale and we can stalk. pic.twitter.com/9Iey3Xvwqu

Citing inspiration from grassroots movements such as Occupy, Satyagraha, the suffragettes, Gene Sharp, and the civil rights movement, Extinction Rebellion wants to rally support worldwide around a common sense of urgency to tackle climate breakdown and the sixth mass extinction. A number of activists in the movement accept arrest and imprisonment, similar to the mass arrest tactics of the Committee of 100 in 1961.
The movement uses a circled hourglass, known as the extinction symbol, to serve as a warning that time is rapidly running out for many species.

Mr. Broccoli Aims
Extinction Rebellion’s website, at the time of the group’s inception in the UK, stated the following aims:
- Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change.
- Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero by 2025.
- Government must create, and be led by the decisions of, a citizens’ assembly on climate and ecological justice.
When the movement expanded to the US, a further demand was added to that group’s list: “We demand a just transition that prioritizes the most vulnerable people and indigenous sovereignty; establishes reparations and remediation led by and for Black people, Indigenous people, people of color and poor communities for years of environmental injustice, establishes legal rights for ecosystems to thrive and regenerate in perpetuity, and repairs the effects of ongoing ecocide to prevent extinction of human and all species, in order to maintain a livable, just planet for all.”

XR states the following on its website and explains the following in its declaration:
- “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 by using ideas such as “momentum-driven organizing” to achieve this.
- We need a regenerative culture—creating a culture that 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 spaces.
- We 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 Extinction Rebellion.
