We are facing an unprecedented global emergency and we are a community of people in Hastings and St Leonards who are passionate about protecting our planet and securing a better future for our children. 

We believe in the aims and principles of Extinction Rebellion and we hope this will be a network of loving support which will keep us strong, aware, and empower us to take action in whatever ways we can. 

This action includes organising local talks and public demonstrations which will help raise awareness of the need to act urgently. We also will be coordinating as a group to support national and international rebellions which disrupt major cities, in order to force our government and people in power to listen and act. 

 

Why we need your help

Donations are massively needed and appreciated. They will support us in all of these activities.

They will help us pay for:

- venue hire, tea/refreshments for our talks and training sessions and travel expenses for external speakers

- art materials such as printing inks, paints and stamps so that we can create eye-catching objects to promote our message and share with others

- printing costs for leaflets and signs to help publicise events and deepen understanding

 

We promise that your money will be spent wisely. We always reuse, recycle and use sustainable materials as much as we can. 

 

 

Extinction Rebellion's Mission:

The planet is in crisis and we are in the midst of a mass extinction. Scientists believe we have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown. The Earth’s atmosphere is already over 1°C warmer than pre-industrial levels and the chance of staying below the 1.5°C limit set in the Paris Agreement is tiny. Projections show we are on course for 3 degrees of warming and probably much higher.

 

We and our children will face unimaginable horrors as a result of floods, wildfires, extreme weather, crop failures and the inevitable breakdown of society when the pressures are so great. We are unprepared for the danger our future holds.

The time for denial is over – we know the truth about climate change. It is time to act.

 

 

Thank you so much for your support. 

 

Love and rage, 

Extinction Rebellion Hastings & St Leonards (XRHSL)
