Climate Solution

November 26, escorting the three arrested Rebels to Court, then to the ANZ to redo the ‘Wilful Damage’ by repainting Zero Emissions 2025 and the XR Logo on the footpath, we even got the conservative NZ Herald interested.

Thank you Red Rebels and everyone who supported this action

Why the Government needs you to protest for the climate

“You need to ensure that you’ve got social licence for the change programme. The executive needs to feel that it’s got the support to do what needs to be done. So having an active Opposition against climate action, which there is, makes things harder.” James Shaw.

Advocacy from the public can help outweigh that opposition.

Looking forward to 2022

A strategy meeting confirmed our focus: Zero Emissions 2025.

TARGET THE NATIONAL DECISION MAKERS.

We considered that there are many significant industry headquarters and finance organisations and other suitable targets, plus one third of the population in around and within reach of Tamaki Makaurau.

Our role is to ‘raise the alarm’. There are many actions and decisions that could be made now. The knowledge of what is needed is available now. We are not the solutions givers. We are the alarm raisers.

The main target is the national decision makers: Government, the Prime Minister.

Help us create lots of effective nonviolent direct and disruptive actions next year as we build the international pressure to COP 27 for real international commitment and action to the Paris Agreement of post-industrial heating to 1.5 degrees because the people are speaking, wanting the necessary urgent action now to keep the planet livable.
